BTU Delivers 5th PYRAMAX Reflow Oven to TKT Electronics


Reading time ( words)

BTU International, Inc. is pleased to announce that TKT Electronics has installed its fifth PYRAMAX reflow oven. TKT Electronics is a visionary and innovative Danish EMS company. The sale was facilitated by CORE-emt, BTU’s representative in all Scandinavian countries.

“Because the PYRAMAX reflow ovens have given us such high performance and low maintenance for the operator in the last seven years, there was never any doubt that our fifth reflow oven should again be a PYRAMAX 100A,” says Tommy Korsholt, CEO at TKT Electronics. “It has been a good experience working with these versatile reflow ovens. The PYRAMAX 100A has solved all technical process issues with soldering. So far, we’ve been able to solder PBCs from 0.000016 kg up to 1.5 kg.”

In addition to PYRAMAX’s versatility, TKT cited the PYRAMAX’s impressive reliability record as a key purchasing criterion.  With four PYRAMAX reflow ovens already in production; only one blower motor has required replacement in the past seven years, resulting in an exceptional MTBF record.

Korsholt added, “The PYRAMAX reflow ovens are reliable and require a minimal amount of spare parts. When failures do occur, it is important for TKT Electronics to know that help is on the way. We value having a trusted supplier and service partner in CORE-emt. We’ve been working with CORE-emt for many years and know that we are in good hands.”

In addition to EMS production, TKT Electronics also developed their own SafeLine software for digital quality assurance—virtually eliminating quality issues.  In 2018 TKS’s SafeLine was awarded with the Danish Industry Initiative Award. The software is now available for other electronics companies.

In this article, Keith Sweatman explains how the volume of low-melting-point alloy paste—which delivers the optimum proportion of retained ball alloy for a particular reflow temperature—can be determined by reference to the phase diagrams of the ball and paste alloys.

Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.

Surface Treatment Enabling Low-Temperature Soldering to Aluminum

07/15/2019 | Divyakant Kadiwala, Averatek Corporation
An increasingly popular method to meet the need for lower cost circuitry is the use of aluminum on polyester (Al-PET) substrates. This material is gaining popularity and has found wide use in RFID tags, low-cost LED lighting, and other single-layer circuits. However, both aluminum and PET have their own constraints and require special processing to make finished circuits.
