• RPI - KIC


Reflow Process Management Tool

A reflow oven is a busy machine, striving to control multiple variables while heating and cooling PCBs.  The purpose of the oven, however, is very simple.
A. Create a specific PCB profile
B.  Maintain required throughput
The KIC RPI optimizes both of these outputs while sharing the data on a continuous basis with the authorized personnel.

Reflow Process Index

The KIC RPI indexes the single most important output of a reflow oven, namely how well the profile conforms to the required spec.  This index is independent of type of oven, PCB type, personnel, and even geographical location.
