Reading time ( words)

BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing market, has announced plans to exhibit at NEPCON China, scheduled to take place April 21-23, 2021 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center. BTU will showcase its new selective soldering system for the first time – the Hentec Industries Valence 3508. BTU recently announced the distribution agreement limited to Asia with Hentec Industries.

The Valence 3508 was designed for high mix, high volume, high level PCB production. The continuous duty, multi-station, in-line selective soldering machine utilizes an electromagnetic pump. The Valence 3508 can be programmed in minutes and is highly configurable and customizable. With a three-shift processing area and stainless-steel ball screws, the Valence 3508 selective soldering system increases production efficiency and reduces downtime associated with maintenance.

BTU is also featuring its award-winning Pyramax™ convection reflow oven at the show. BTU’s Pyramax family of high-throughput 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.  With 6, 8, 10 and 12-zone air or nitrogen models, 350°C maximum temperature and a comprehensive menu of options, Pyramax™️ reflow ovens are the industry’s most versatile performers and best value.

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.
