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.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
