  • Enable expert process results for all technician levels and more…

KIC’s thermal profilers are designed for individual needs and budgets, but what they all have in common is ease of use operation and robust hardware. Choose from a variety of profilers to meet your specific needs:

K2 Profiler

This new K2 Profile Setter makes oven setup easy and quick. User friendliness and convenience now include KIC K2 1000x309
profile viewing on Android and Apple mobile devices

X5 Profiler

Intelligent thermal profiler with 2 year warranty. Robust and compact hardware designed for tough daily handling. KIC X5 1000x323
Upgraded electronic circuitry designed to tolerate higher levels of voltage spikes. Battery or USB powered. Included
software can automatically select the best oven setup to optimize each new PCB profile.

 KICstart2KICstart2 1000x372

The new KICstart2 is designed for those companies looking to quickly capture an accurate profile, without all the
additional capabilities to optimize the process. The exceptionally low price makes the KICstart2 affordable for almost
any budget.


Process Window IndexKIC PWI 185x131

For precise ranking of profile performance, KIC’s software tools use the Process Window Index™ (PWI). The PWI measures the profile’s fit to the process
window in a mathematical and objective manner by using a single number.

This provides a powerful tool for quickly evaluating the quality and robustness of any thermal process set up. The PWI 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!
