BTU Demos PYRAMAX Vacuum Reflow Oven at ACI Technologies Open House

Reading time ( words)

BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing market, will participate in ACI Technologies’ upcoming Factory Equipment Open House. ACI will offer live demonstrations for BTU’s PYRAMAX™ Vacuum Reflow Oven during the event on Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2020 from 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the ACI facility in Philadelphia, PA.

The PYRAMAX Vacuum demonstration will be led by Fred Dimock, manager of process technology at BTU. The demo will cover the elimination of voids in thermal pads by using vacuum reflow. Dimock has assisted many companies with process development, and has authored numerous articles on vacuum reflow, lead-free solder, thermal process control and the operation of continuous furnaces.

Because of the expansive size of the factory floor and by exercising the proper procedures of masks and maximum occupancy, ACI has been able to continue hosting equipment demonstrations since June. Many industry conferences and expositions are virtual so the ACI Factory Equipment Open House event may be the only way to experience hands on equipment demonstrations from major manufacturers.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.
