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.
