October 25, 2012 - Accommodating companies looking to capture accurate thermal profile without additional capabilities to optimize process, KICstart2™ uses Process Window Index to measure quality of profile with one number. This data acquisition profiler automatically identifies location of each oven heating zone, minimizing if not eliminating measurement requirements. Tool also corrects for different thermocouple (TC) locations on part, aligning them for improved profile graph viewing.

San Diego – KIC announces the launch of its KICstart2, a new generation data acquisition profiler. The compact and cost effective profiler takes advantage of KIC’s easy-to-use graphical user interface. The KICstart2 is designed for those companies looking to quickly capture an accurate profile without all of the additional capabilities to optimize the process. Its exceptionally low price makes the KICstart2 affordable for almost any budget.

A challenge with most profilers on the market is not the lack of data being collected, but rather the ability to make sense of a large quantity of data. The KICstart2 uses KIC’s powerful Process Window Index (PWI) concept to measure the quality of the profile with a single number. Most companies today are running lean and need equipment that is easy-to-use, with which operators and technicians can be trained easily.

The KICstart2 thermal profiler utilizes core technologies developed by KIC, and is supported by KIC’s worldwide organization. The patented design concept automatically identifies the location of each oven heating zone, so few, if any, measurements are required. Additionally, the KICstart2 automatically corrects for different thermocouple (TC) locations on the part, aligning them for improved profile graph viewing.

“The KICstart2 does not complicate things by trying to be everything to everybody. It makes the basics of thermal profiling in reflow and wave solder machines quick, accurate and easy,” said KIC President Bjorn Dahle.

Based in San Diego, KIC is the industry leader in automated thermal management tools and systems for reflow, wave, cure and semiconductor thermal processes. The company pioneered the development of oven profilers and process optimization tools, and then worked to create the next generation of thermal systems to help manufacturers improve the thermal process quality while reducing cost.

In addition to KIC Explorer, products include the KIC RPI reflow process inspection system, the KIC Vision automatic profiling system and more. With the introduction of cutting edge tools, the company continues to stay on the leading edge of process optimization and automatic thermal management systems, and has won numerous industry awards.
