ECD to Display Complete Range of Thermal Profiling and Verification Solutions at productronica

Reading time ( words)

At this year's productronica event in Munich, Germany, ECD will showcase its award-winning thermal profiling technologies, including the broad portfolio of M.O.L.E. thermal profilers, wave soldering test pallets and reflow oven performance verification tools. In addition, the company plans to debut a next-generation, scalable monitoring system designed to provide continuous oversight and customizable data analysis for various SMT thermal processes. The first module centers on reflow oven performance and output optimization. ECD will be in Hall A4 Booth 532.

ECD's M.O.L.E. thermal profiling range includes 3-, 6- and 20- channel options to address the various requirements of standard SMT through to complex, high-value assemblies. Visitors to the ECD booth can learn more about its MEGA M.O.L.E. 20 profiler for demanding, high-complexity boards and R&D work; the SuperM.O.L.E. Gold 2 with six channels of powerful profiling capability ideal for OEMs and EMS providers that need reliable performance and versatility; and, the V-M.O.L.E., which provides value and verification in an easy-to-use three-channel system. The profiling portfolio will be demonstrated alongside ECD’s process test pallets, including the WaveRIDER, OvenRIDER NL 2+, OvenCHECKER® and Fluxometer.    

"M.O.L.E. is the industry's original thermal profiling system, developed by ECD over three decades ago when we were the first to recognize the technology need," says ECD President and CEO, Todd Clifton. "Since then, our expert team has continued M.O.L.E.’s engineering evolution, always progressing and perfecting our approach to thermal process optimization. We invite Productronica show delegates to learn more about what M.O.L.E. and our thermal process experts can do to enhance their soldering operation."

The company's long, successful history and expansive thermal processing know-how is at the foundation of ECD's latest innovation, a breakthrough continuous process monitoring system set to be introduced at productronica this year. Bypassing current market solutions, ECD's monitoring technology adds new levels of control, customization, scalability, trend identification and in-process product visibility for high-yield, cost-effective results. The company will introduce the first module for reflow oven monitoring.

"ECD continues to lead the market with meaningful technology innovation – delivering products that help reduce cost, raise productivity and improve yield," says Clifton in summary. "Our latest development underscores this approach and we look forward to demonstrating its effectiveness for productronica visitors."
