Reading time ( words)

BTU International Inc. will exhibit at Heat Treat, ASM's Heat Treating Society Conference & Exhibition, which is scheduled to take place October 24–26, 2017 in Columbus, Ohio. BTU will highlight its controlled atmosphere furnaces in Booth 2524.

BTU's controlled atmosphere belt furnaces are available with temperature ranges up to 1150°C and with various process atmospheres including hydrogen and nitrogen. BTU designs and manufactures inline controlled atmosphere furnaces for a number of applications including: glass-to-metal sealing, direct bond copper, brazing, sintering and heat-treating.

BTU is the industry leader in atmosphere control for continuous furnaces. Whether dealing with high purity muffle applications or general purpose muffle-less applications, BTU has a unique set of capabilities, know-how and experience supporting precision temperature and atmosphere applications. Excellent atmosphere purity is achieved through the use of BTU’s patented gas barrier technology. In addition, BTU’s unique eductor technology can be used to enhance cooling or control process atmosphere. The end result is superior efficiency, superior performance and superior thermal uniformity.

BTU's controlled atmosphere furnaces feature BTU's proprietary WINCON control system. WINCON features a simplified user interface and incredibly powerful analytical capabilities.

PCB Pad Repair Techniques

01/08/2018 | Bob Wettermann, BEST Inc.
There are a variety of reasons behind pads getting "lifted" completely or partially from the laminate of a PCB. Per the just revised IPC-A-610 Revision G, a defect for all three classes occurs when the land is lifted up one or more pad thicknesses. Lifted pads can occur when a device has been improperly removed or there is a manufacturing defect in the board construction. In any case, as with any repair, the ultimate decision on the ability to repair the pad lies with the customer.

Focus on the New

01/05/2018 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
It seems like it wasn't too long ago when I was writing about the optimism of the electronics manufacturing and assembly industry going into 2017. Now, here we are again at the beginning of the new year, looking at new trends, disruptive technologies, and emerging markets for 2018. I am also proud to announce our new branding as well as our fresh, new look.

Solder Printing Process Inputs Impacting Distribution of Paste Volume

12/14/2017 | Marco Lajoie and Alain Breton, C-MAC Microelectronics
The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.
