Maximum Functionality, Ease-of-Use, and Trouble-Free Maintenance are Not Sacrificed by the CR-6000 Reflow Oven Compact Design   CR-6000 Reflow Oven Automatic Hood-Lift Mechanism Allows Easy Access to Heating Chamber and Conveyor System for Cleaning and Maintenance
Maximum Functionality, Ease-of-Use, and Trouble-Free Maintenance are Not Sacrificed by the CR-6000 Compact Design
While high mass heat sources and a unique air flow design allow efficient convection reflow over shorter heated lengths, great care has been taken to ensure that the CR-6000's compact design does not come at the expense of easy access to system components for regular operation and system maintenance. Lockable access panels, air-cylinder-assisted hinged covers, and an automatic heating chamber hood lift, complement a well-thought-out and organized system architecture within a small footprint.

Automatic Hood-Lift Mechanism Allows Easy Access to Heating Chamber and Conveyor System for Cleaning and Maintenance
This photo shows the interior of the heating chamber with the hood in the raised position and the bottom of the air diffuser panels of the upper heating zones. It also shows the combination mesh belt and adjustable pin-type conveyor rails above the belt. The rail at the center of the conveyor in this photo is the movable rail and is adjustable for board widths from 2" through 17.7" on the CR-6000 system. An optional center board support system is also offered to avert board warpage issues common to larger PCBs processed at higher lead-free temperatures.

High Precision Stainless Steel Conveyor Mechanism Includes Automatic Lubrication Function 
The adjustable edge-pin type conveyor is constructed of high-quality stainless steel components and features a very stable, rugged design to maintain tight tolerances at the high temperatures associated with lead-free reflow. In conjunction with an automatic chain lubrication system (shown in this photo), smooth, quiet conveyor motion is maintained and jams or dropped PCB assemblies are prevented. Precise motorized width adjustment is standard on all pin conveyor systems and automatic width adjustment, based on the parameter settings for specific reflow programs, is also available as an option.

The CR-6000 Includes a Built-In Flux Filter to Prevent Excess Residue from Entering Exhaust System
A built-in flux filtering system removes large amounts of excess flux from exhausted air or nitrogen. The filter is accessible through the hinged panels on the rear of the system and is easily removed and cleaned with an alcohol-based cleaner.

CR-6000 Reflow Oven Can Be Ordered With An Internal Water Cooling System Option For Rapid Cooling Rates Required By Some Lead-Free Solders CR-6000 Reflow Oven Control Software is Highlighted by Its Attractive and Uncomplicated Menu-Driven Visual User Interface
The CR-6000 Can Be Ordered With An Internal Water Cooling System Option For Rapid Cooling Rates Required By Some Lead-Free Solders
This photo shows the internal, water-chilled recirculating cooling system which is available for the CR-6000 model. This option allows more aggressive cooling rates to meet solder paste manufacturers recommendations to a much greater degree than is possible through the exclusive use of air cooling.

CR Series Control Software is Highlighted by Its Attractive and Uncomplicated Menu-Driven Visual User Interface
The main screen of the CR Series user interface features a colorful, virtual representation of the system showing the actual temperature of each zone and the general system status. A table at the bottom of the screen shows the actual values versus the set values for both temperature and conveyor speed. Systems also include PCB sensors on the conveyor and, through the control software, can monitor the number of assemblies processed. Easily identifiable icons at the top of the screen provide quick access to all software functions and control settings.

CR-6000 Reflow Oven Zone Temperatures and Conveyor Speed are Easily Set Through a Password-Protected Parameters Window CR-6000 Reflow Oven Full-Screen Temperature Profile Recording
Zone Temperatures and Conveyor Speed are Easily Set Through a Password-Protected Parameters Window
Process control parameters that produce a specific temperature profile can be saved to and loaded from memory for specific production runs. Once loaded, specific zone temperature settings, upper and lower limits, alarm settings and conveyor speeds can be adjusted as necessary. Password protection separates basic operator functions from critical parameter settings that should only be changed by supervisors or production managers.

Full-Screen Temperature Profile Recording
The CR Series control software allows easy charting of real-time thermal data from up to three separate thermocouple inputs for precise profiling that matches solder paste manufacturers' critical lead-free reflow parameters. This allows users to set zone temperatures and conveyor speeds to the optimum settings that will produce the desired profile at the desired throughput. The thermocouples also allow monitoring of temperature sensitive components at specific locations on the PCB.

CR-6000 Reflow Oven Automatic Startup and Shutdown Functions Provide Maximum Flexibility and Energy Saving Potential
Automatic Startup and Shutdown Functions Provide Maximum Flexibility and Energy Saving Potential
Timed automatic startup and shutdown functions can be used to coordinate oven warm-up and cooldown times with breaks in production and transitions between up to three separate work shifts in each 24 hour period. These convenient scheduling tools will pay dividends through both energy conservation and production preparedness.

Profile Prediction

HOW 'AUTO FOCUS POWER' PROFILE PREDICTION WORKS:

1. Select Your Solder Paste Formula and Process Window
The KIC Auto-Focus Power software includes a database of over 1000 different solder paste formulas from dozens of different solder paste manufacturers. Each database entry includes the manufacturer's recommended solder profile for that specific solder paste formula and identifies critical specifications (i.e. maximum ramp rate, maximum cooling rate, temperatures for preheat, soak, reflow, and peak, allowable times above those temperatures, etc., with upper and lower limits for each) that define the process window. After selecting the solder paste, users can either use the profile as is or can modify the specifications to create a process window that meets their own unique criteria.
2. Link Your Product to the Process Window
Once the Process Window is selected (defined), the next step in using Auto-Focus is selecting the product to be soldered (or assigning a name if the product has not yet been defined). This step, in effect, links the product to the selected process window. It also links the process window and the product to the CR Series Oven data in the database. The oven data has been produced by KIC's characterization of the unique thermal properties of specific CR Series oven models as they relate to varying product sizes and processes.
3. Define the Product's Physical Characteristics
The user now enters the average length, average width, and total weight of the product.
4. Obtain and Confirm the Oven Settings
Auto-Focus now scans the built-in database for zone temperature/belt speed settings that produce a thermal profile that best fits within the process window when soldering a similarly sized product. By comparing that profile to the desired process window, Auto-Focus is able to estimate the PWI™ (Process Window Index); a single value that will give the user an indication of how far "within spec" the actual profile will be when using the recommended oven settings. If the PWI value is acceptable, the user can then obtain the exact temperature settings for each zone along with the belt speed.
