BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the alternative energy and electronics manufacturing markets, will highlight new High Efficiency (HE) flux management and dual–lane, dual-speed capabilities of its PYRAMAX™ solder reflow system, as well as the latest WINCON™5.0 control software in booth #F22 at the NEPCON West China 2012. The event is scheduled to take place June 19-21, 2012, at the new International Convention & Exposition Center in Chengdu, China.
PYRAMAX™ reflow ovens set the industry standard for thermal performance, providing electronics manufacturers with the highest throughput to compete successfully in today’s challenging marketplace. The HE flux management system incorporates a new design that ensures clean oven operation that further extends the maintenance cycle. The HE flux management system collects flux residue by processing oven atmosphere from multiple extraction points through a series of heat exchangers. To reduce downtime, the HE flux management system is designed to allow service while the oven is in production (true on-the-fly maintenance).
Dual-lane reflow ovens have been used to double throughput in a single reflow oven by allowing two boards to be run at the same time in parallel with identical or nearly identical boards. Now, by using dual-speed, it is possible to achieve independent thermal profiles and run boards with significant differences, simultaneously, adding further flexibility to the already doubled throughput. The newly-launched WINCON 5.0 control system software offers true dual process capability with the ability to adjust one lane while the other lane continues production.
