BTU International to Showcase Reflow Oven with Redundant Process Monitor


Reading time ( words)

BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, today announced that it will exhibit at the NEPCON ASIA (NEPCON SOUTH CHINA) Show, scheduled to take place August 28-30, 2019 at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center in China. The company will demonstrate a PYRAMAX 150A 12-zone reflow oven with the Profile Guardian Redundant Process Monitor in Hall 1, Booth 1M45.

BTU’s PYRAMAX family of high-throughput convection reflow ovens is widely recognized as the global standard of excellence for SMT solder reflow, semiconductor packaging and LED packaging and assembly.

PYRAMAX reflow ovens provide optimized lead-free processing for the ultimate in productivity and efficiency. BTU’s exclusive closed-loop convection control provides precise heating and cooling, programmable heat transfer, and reduced nitrogen consumption, adding up to the lowest cost of ownership in the industry. 

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 reflow 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 as well as for Industry 4.0 implementation.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 2)

07/24/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
In the last three to five years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the use of low melting point alloys for SMT applications. Typically, the compositions are around the eutectic bismuth-tin alloy, perhaps with additions of other elements to increase the robustness of certain alloy properties. Now, there are several new products on the market and numerous ongoing reliability projects in industry consortia.
