BTU to Demo New Technology at NEPCON China 2018


Reading time ( words)

BTU International Inc. will exhibit at NEPCON China 2018, scheduled to take place April 24–26, 2018 at the Shanghai World EXPO Exhibition & Convention Center. The company will showcase the Profile Guardian Redundant Process Monitor and PYRAMAX 125N Reflow Oven in Stand 1F25.

"We've expanded our offerings significantly this year, not only increasing our software capabilities to further satisfy Industry 4.0 but to also use PYRAMAX technology to solve process problems such as voiding and substrate warpage," said Bob Bouchard, corporate marketing manager for BTU. "We're excited to share these developments with our customers."

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.

The PYRAMAX 125N features a 24" width process chamber enabling the processing of large boards for LED and other applications. The PYRAMAX family of reflow ovens also includes the PYRAMAX Vacuum to eliminate solder voids, the PYRAMAX ZeroTurn dual chamber reflow oven to eliminate changeover time, and the PYRAMAX TrueFlat for substrate flatness.

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.

Tips & Tricks: Machine Assist Time

02/05/2018 | Ken Horky, Peterson Manufacturing
Assist time is the human intervention required to keep a machine producing during normal operation. It does not include errors, maintenance, setup, and prototyping. There are many reasons for a machine to require assistance. PCB loading, stencil wiping, paste addition, feeder replenishment, and PCBA unloading—some require labor, some can be automated, but all will require some amount of time to complete.
