Reading time ( words)

BTU International Inc., one of the leading suppliers of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing market, will exhibit its new PYRAMAX Vacuum reflow oven at the IPC APEX EXPO 2018, scheduled to take place February 27–March 1, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center in California, USA. BTU will be in Booth 927.

The PYRAMAX Vacuum reflow oven has been designed around the 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."

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.

IPC Standards Development: Business Challenges and an Inside View

10/28/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
With increasing frequency, standardising the standards, such as ISO 9201, imposes certain rules that must be met to ensure “fair play” amongst the supply chain. There will be those familiar with hearing about “false positives/negatives” and “never trust the salesman,” so mitigating these is no easy task. However, there is the chance for each 5-30 Task Group to review industry requirements and set out the work program for the ensuing period. With that in mind, much of what follows is based on comments we learn about from our industry around the world, many of whom are not yet IPC members. Yes, this is a membership recruitment drive, unashamedly, as well as a search for volunteers willing to help create the standards of tomorrow.
