EVS International will exhibit in booth #1132 at SMTA International, scheduled to take place Sept. 24-25, 2019 at the Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. The company will show the EVS 500LF solder recovery system. The EVS500 LF offers improved performance and cost savings.
With the EVS500LF, users can quickly recover up to 80% of pure solder with a higher ROI from the waste dross. EVS has continually improved the performance of the EVS units and the new EVS 500LF is no exception.
The EVS 500LF has the same footprint as a printer and is aimed at multiple markets: The customer with one lead wave and one lead-free wave; the customer who uses Nitrogen or wants to reduce their Nitrogen usage; the customer with selective solder pots who only removes small amounts of dross every hour; or the customer with multiple waves where one EVS 500LF is connected to each wave.

Joe’s background in marketing and finance, as well as his leadership at Green Circuits, positions him as an expert on managing costs related to labor, facilities, lead times, employee training, and the future of the industry. But what rising costs actually surprised him? This is a must-read for us all.

For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.
