BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing market, will exhibit at the SMTA Capital Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Tuesday, May 23, 2023 at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory Kossiakoff Center. Attendees can learn all about BTU’s reflow ovens, Profile Tracer and the all-new Aurora platform. 

“2023 has already been a big year for product development at BTU,” said Bob Bouchard, director of sales and marketing for BTU. “Earlier this year we launched the Profile Tracer and we have just returned from the launch of our new reflow platform, the Aurora, in Germany.  I’m looking forward to bringing our customers up to date at the SMTA Expo.”

BTU will feature its new, award-winning Profile Tracer, a next-generation thermal profiling tool providing real-time data acquisition for oven optimization by identifying inconsistencies due to temperature variation at both the product level and at the heat source.

With 6, 8, 10, and 12 zone air or nitrogen models, flexible platform configuration and low nitrogen and power consumption, the PYRAMAX family of convection reflow ovens the industry’s best value. The BTU team also will discuss its newest development – the Aurora platform. Using the combination of newly integrated process control technologies and innovative Wincon 8 reflow oven control software, Aurora provides the ultimate in thermal process performance.
