KIC will showcase the affordable and easy-to-use ProBot automatic profiling system at the SMTA Intermountain (Utah) Expo & Tech Forum (Oct 23) at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, UT. The ProBot automatically measures the profile for each PCB and verifies whether each PCB is processed to specification in the reflow oven.
ProBot, an automatic profiling system, reduces the need for time consuming periodic profiling. ProBot will immediately identify if the oven is ready for in-spec production, receive warnings/alarms if the process drifts and automatically send product-related yield data to third party management/MES systems.
The system saves time and money by automating tasks such as periodic oven checks, PCB thermal profile data collection, potential thermal-related defects and yield data reports. Factories looking for traceability in the thermal process may add modules for barcoding, lot information and real-time yield charts.
Additionally, the ProBot is designed to fit virtually any reflow oven on the market. The product is highly modular, allowing each user to specify the desired features. There is no longer a need to pay for unnecessary or unwanted capabilities.
