RPI – REFLOW PROCESS INDEX

__

www.kicthermal.com

A reflow oven is a very busy machine striving to control multiple variables while heating and cooling PCBs. The purpose of the oven, however, is to:

  • Create a specific PCB profile
  • Maintain required throughput

The RPI utilizes embedded sensors for heat and conveyor speed to automatically measure and display the following information:

  • PCB profile
  • Profile’s “fit” to the process window
  • Continuously displayed production details (Product name and lot ID, Oven name, Production date and time stamp etc)
  • PCB process traceability
  • Statistics of defects and process yields

It’s provided with the following software:

KIC AUTOFOCUS and KIC AUTOFOCUS POWER – to eliminate the need to “guess” at an initial oven recipe, and instead calculates the ideal oven recipe.

 

KIC NAVIGATOR and KIC NAVIGATOR POWER –  to identify the single best oven setup based on your choice of 3 optimization criteria:

  • Center of the Process Window – PWI – (Process Window Index)
  • Maximum Conveyor Speed
  • Minimum Electricity Use

Caratteristiche:

  • Process traceability for each PCB
  • Management data for reflow quality and throughput
  • Reduced production cost
  • Measuring process quality — independent of equipment, personnel and location
  • Automated continuous profiling
