Reading time ( words)

BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing market, announced that it was awarded a 2021 SMT China Vision Award in the category of Soldering – Selective for the Hentec Industries Valence 3508. The award was presented to the company during a ceremony that took place during NEPCON China in Shanghai. BTU is the exclusive distributor for Hentec products in Asia. 

“We are very excited to have added the Hentec selective soldering product line to our existing offerings for our customers in Asia,” said Ewing Hsieh, director sales Asia Pacific. “This industry award confirms the importance of having a complete solution for soldering, both reflow and selective, for our Asian customers and we are honored to accept it.”

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.

SMT China magazine launched the SMT China Vision Awards in 2007 to recognize both international and domestic providers of SMT equipment, materials, software and services that have made outstanding contributions to the rapid growth of China's electronics manufacturing industry by their inventions and innovations.
