PNC Inc. recently purchased a 1913 Mark III Series SMT Reflow Oven from Heller Industries. In keeping with their commitment to continuous improvement, this machine will be a part of a new SMT line that is coming to PNC in the coming weeks.
"Although we have positioned ourselves as industry leaders, we still want to keep pushing the envelope,” said President Sam Sangani. "We recognize there is no cap on quality so pursuing it is an ongoing endeavor."
The 1913 Mark III is a 13-zone (more than any competitor) reflow machine that is capable of moving as fast as 1.4m/min thus lending itself well to PNC Inc.'s increasing PC board assembly demands. Also, it has a 26-inch wide heater module along with a wide process window which makes it a very versatile tool.
With RoHs becoming more and more prevalent in the industry, the 1913 Mark III is one of the most efficient reflows on the market to date. Its innovative cooling module allows for cooling rates higher than 3 degrees C per second—enabling it to meet the most stringent of lead-free requirements.
"Above all," Sangani said, "was our insistence that this machine be cost efficient for our customers' benefit and energy efficient for the environment's benefit." This reflow can save up to $40,000 per year—these savings will undoubtedly transfer to customers and their bottom lines.
