k2 product FULL

K² Advantages

Mid-Range Profile Setter

  • The K² profile setter replaces the last of KIC’s older technology profilers
  • Competitively priced for the mid-range market

Compact and Robust Hardware

  • The K² will fit through the tight heated chambers often found in lead-free production
  • 7 TC unit dimensions:
    • 206 x 60 x 17 (mm)
    • Shield: 302 x 75 x 23 (mm)
  • 9 TC unit dimensions
    • 206 x 75 x 17 (mm)
    • Shield: 312 x 90 x 23 (mm)
  • Durable hardware designed to withstand rough production environments

Fail-Safe Operation

  • Automatic start when temperatures are below a specified ‘start’ trigger, protecting the K² and assuring consistent starting points and repeatable profiles
  • Hardware designed for accurate measurements
  • Engineer sets quality and productivity related parameters:
    • PWI level
    • Minimum/maximum allowable conveyor speed
    • Maximum peak temperature,etc.
  • For use by reflow oven operators, technicians and engineers who need a reflow oven thermal profile

Reflow Oven Setup Software

  • KIC’s optimization software does a complete search for all possible combinations of oven zone temperatures and conveyor speeds. It selects the very best oven setup for each new product within seconds
  • User selectable setup criteria focuses on positioning the profile towards:
    • the center of the process window
    • maximum conveyor speed
    • minimum oven electricity usage

Instant and Objective Profile Analysis

  • KIC’s famous Process Window Index (PWI) explains how the profile fits the established process window, with a single number:
    • PWI above 100 = profile out of spec
    • PWI at 100 = profile right on the spec limit
    • PWI below 100 = profile in spec
    • PWI at 0 = the exact center of the process window
  • Immediate profile analysis
  • Objective and personnel-independent profile analysis
  • Outlying profile data made visible

Accessing the K² Profile Data on the PC or Mobile Device

  • The profile data can be displayed in two ways:
    • On the oven PC or profiling PC
    • On an Authorized Android mobile device
  • Convenient sharing function for selected profile data
Conveniently view and share reflow oven thermal profiles on mobile devices

The Process Window Index

PWI Process Window Index

Profiling Reduced to a Single Number

The PWI measures the profile’s fit to the process window in a mathematical and objective manner by using a single number. This aids in optimizing the process by comparing and ranking alternative profiles in terms of their fit to the available process window. The lower the PWI, the more efficient and stable the process! (See the PWI data sheet for a detailed explanation)
