BTU Goes to Florida for the SMTA Space Coast Expo


Reading time ( words)

BTU International, Inc. will exhibit at the SMTA Space Coast Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, January 18, 2018 at the Melbourne Auditorium in Melbourne, Florida. BTU will discuss its new Profile Guardian redundant process monitor to support Industry 4.0 and award-winning PYRAMAX platform.

Profile Guardian pairs a thermocouple probe at product height with software to monitor temperature deviation from baseline – independent from control TCs. The redundant process monitor is aware of oven state (recipe change, energy savings modes, etc.), and monitor data can be included in host communications (MES) from the oven. Additionally, it provides board level traceability when paired with bar code readers, which is a requirement for many large OEM/EMS customers. 

BTU is responsible for several recent advances that support Industry 4.0, including 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 recognized 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.

Equipment Matters in Solder Paste Printing

12/06/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
The solder paste printing process has always been considered a major contributor to yield loss. According to many studies, solder paste printing accounts for up to 70% of all PCB assembly defects. For the December issue of SMT Magazine, we interviewed experts in the solder paste printing process to learn more about the key issues leading to this huge percentage of defects, and the technology developments that are addressing these challenges and improving yields in the process.
