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.

DFM: Top Ten PCB Concerns

07/09/2018 | Dan Thau, Millennium Circuits Ltd
DFM—design for manufacturability—is a critically important but often ignored aspect of the PCB design process that directly impacts product quality and reliability. This article will discuss the top 10 DFM concerns that should be part of any design review process.

Manufacturability: Pad Relief and Mask Relationship to Solder Joint Volume

03/09/2018 | Ken Horky, Peterson Manufacturing
Electronic assembly thermal management has always been an issue but has become more significant as we pack more power and function into a smaller form factor. In recent years, the growing use of LEDs for illumination on a large scale has presented additional thermal demands.

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.
