BTU Receives Repeat Customer Order for Multiple Units for LED Assembly

Reading time ( words)

BTU International, Inc. today announced that it has received a repeat order from a North American-based customer for multiple PYRAMAX 125A units for LED assembly applications. PYRAMAX’s wide board capability and thermal uniformity were key factors in the purchase decision for the recent follow-on order.

“PYRAMAX, with numerous LED assembly installations worldwide, has proven an excellent fit for LED manufacturing due to the large board capability and uncompromised thermal uniformity across the entire 24" width,” said Peter Tallian, general manager of BTU International. “This follow-on order is consistent with an increase in LED installations in North America and other regions in the past quarters.  Additionally, LED is a key application for our high-temperature custom furnace business.”

LED assembly techniques include solder reflow and die attach. BTU’s PYRAMAX reflow oven is optimized for LED manufacturing with large board capability and closed-loop convection process control. PYRAMAX leverages more than a decade of semiconductor packaging and SMT assembly experience.

Additionally, BTU provides custom controlled atmosphere furnaces for other LED applications including Direct Bond Copper for high-power applications as well as for Silver Sintering.

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.
