Reading time ( words)

BTU International, Inc. has announced plans to introduce its new PYRAMAX Vacuum reflow oven. The system will be on display for the first time in Hall A3, Stand 154 at productronica 2017, scheduled to take place November 14-17, 2017 at the Messe München in Germany with EPP Electronic Production Partners GmbH.

The PYRAMAX Vacuum reflow oven has been designed around requirements of large EMS/high-volume automotive customers. The unit is configured with 10 zones of closed-loop convection heating and a maximum production width of 18". Nitrogen atmosphere capable, the PYRAMAX Vacuum reflow oven offers a maximum process temperature of 350° C.

The unit features integrated controls with BTU’s proprietary Wincon windows-based control system and full integration with factory MES/Industry 4.0 including vacuum parameters. Additional features include:

  • Automatic sequencing
  • Programmable control of vacuum level and hold time
  • Pass-through mode for non-vacuum operation

Existing PYRAMAX customers can easily transfer their process to the new PYRAMAX Vacuum reflow oven. Bob Bouchard, BTU’s corporate marketing manager, commented, “The industry has recognized that vacuum processing is a proven way to reduce solder voiding during the reflow process. The PYRAMAX Vacuum reflow oven features the industry-leading thermal performance that the PYRAMAX is known for and will allow for easy process transfer for existing Pyramax users.”
