Reading time ( words)

BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing market, is pleased to announce that it has expanded its partnership with CORE-emt to include the Baltics (Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia). CORE-emt also represents BTU’s PYRAMAX reflow ovens in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.

CORE-emt has been representing BTU International for more than seven years. Oliver Wehner, European Sales Manager at BTU Europe Limited, said, “After several years of successful partnership in Scandinavia, we are very excited about expanding our collaboration with CORE-emt to also cover all Baltic countries. Their capability of offering complete line solutions combined with their service team experience and responsiveness, promise a bright future for BTU—and more importantly to our customers in the area.”

“We see this expansion as the perfect fit,” said Steen V. Haugbølle, managing director at CORE-emt. “There is growing collaboration between electronics companies in Scandinavia—especially Finland—and the Baltic region; therefore it is only natural to extend our ‘a complete SMT line from one supplier’ concept into the Baltics. This is a part of our ongoing strategy; to continuously expand, in order to offer our ‘complete line solutions’ to a wider range of OEM and EMS companies.”

Haugbølle added, “The expansion has been carefully planned for some time. By adding on knowledge and manpower in our service department we can ensure OEM and EMS companies in both regions the very best service combined with quality machinery, for example our PYRAMAX reflow ovens.”

CORE-emt supplies OEM and EMS customers in the electronics industry with Surface Mount Technology assembly line equipment. The company’s service division offers skilled service on SMT equipment onsite. CORE-emt excels in all high-end SMT machinery, giving its customers a smooth-running assembly line. CORE-emt offers a full SMT lineup with pick & place machines, PCB board handling, soldering reflow ovens and a lot of supporting SMT units that will influence up-time in a positive way.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

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.
