BTU International Inc. will showcase new technologies to support Industry 4.0 at SMTA International 2017, scheduled to take place September 19-20, 2017 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. BTU will be in Booth 430.

"Our Wincon control system and proprietary Intellimax control board have proved to be powerful tools as we attack the Industry 4.0 standard," says Paul Lancaster, director of sales in the Americas. "We continue to be at the forefront of delivering custom solutions to the most advanced manufacturers in the industry, as well as regularly introducing new options and features supporting Industry 4.0 adoption."

BTU is responsible for several recent advances that support Industry 4.0. These technologies include line control and communications, recipe development and energy savings software solutions. The company offers many solutions for line control/MES, including REST, MQTT, and PROFIBUS among others. BTU's latest development is related to reflow oven process control and board-level traceability.

BTU's PYRAMAX reflow oven is widely recognised as the performance leader in the reflow oven category. The exclusive closed-loop convection ensures process repeatability site-to-site, line-to-line and oven-to-oven regardless of altitude or other factors. WINCON is an advanced windows-based software system for controlling the operation of BTU thermal processing equipment. It combines both the simplicity of a graphical user interface with powerful diagnostic and analytical tools.
