In mid-March, Rehm Thermal Systems handed over their 5000th reflow soldering system, the convection soldering system VisionXP+ to the Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG in Reinach, Switzerland. Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG was founded in 1977 and is one of today’s global leaders in the supply of flow measurement technology for use in all areas of industrial process engineering. Rehm Thermal Systems and Endress+Hauser enjoy a successful partnership reaching back over more than 20 years. A partnership that has given rise to numerous joint projects.
Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG has been developing and manufacturing industrial flowmeters for liquids, gases and steam for over 40 years, earning itself a leading position in this field. For many years now, these flowmeters have been produced using systems, supplied among others, by Rehm. Rehm Thermal Systems has already supplied the Swiss company with four ProtectoXP coating systems, two RDS 3000 drying systems, as well as four VisionXP+ convection soldering systems. A fifth VisionXP+ has now been added to this number. Endress+Hauser Flowtec’s constant line expansion indicates a course of continual growth.
As with all systems in the VisionX series, this VisionXP+ is equipped with two tried and tested residue management systems: pyrolysis in the preheating zone, as well as cold condensation and filtering in the cooling tract. This ensures that all residue, whether in gas, liquid, crystalline or particulate form, is removed from the process gas in an energy saving and efficient way. The VisionXP+ systems from Rehm Thermal Systems in use at Endress+Hauser are also equipped with an extended 1.5 metre cooling tract (Power Cooling Unit), which allows for gentle and controlled cooling of the highly complex components. Rehm Thermal Systems can thus offer Endress+Hauser systems, on which the highest precision manufacturing is possible, consistency of top quality products can be ensured and process optimisation can be successfully put into practice.
“In Rehm we have found a reliable partner that supplies us with high quality thermal systems, on which we can manufacture our products with consistent and reliable quality. We can always rely on Rehm: for the functionality and reliability of their systems, as well as for their expertise, service and cooperation”, says Marco Nardozza, Project Manager at Endress+Hauser Flowtec, who alongside Department Manager Patric Kiener took delivery of the new VisionXP+ at Endress+Hauser Flowtec’s production site in Reinach.
The partnership between Endress+Hauser and Rehm Thermal Systems has existed for more than 20 years: “For us, Endress+Hauser Flowtec has been a business partner right from the word go. Our company always stands to gain when carrying out joint projects and exchanging knowledge with Endress+Hauser Flowtec in order to produce high quality electronics. We value this positive cooperation, are thankful for the trust invested in our company and look forward to mastering future projects together”, says Michael Hanke, Sales Director at Rehm Thermal Systems.
