BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing market, will exhibit at the SMTA Silicon Valley Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017 at Bestronics, Inc. in San Jose, CA. BTU will discuss its new Profile Guardian redundant process monitor to support Industry 4.0 and award-winning PYRAMAX platform.

Profile Guardian pairs a thermocouple probe at product height with software to monitor temperature deviation from baseline – independent from control TCs. The redundant process monitor is aware of oven state (recipe change, energy savings modes, etc.), and monitor data can be included in host communications (MES) from the oven. Additionally, it provides board level traceability when paired with bar code readers, which is a requirement for many large OEM/EMS customers.

BTU’s PYRAMAX reflow oven is widely recognized as the performance leader in the reflow oven category. The exclusive closed-loop convection ensures process repeatability site-to-site, line-to-line and oven-to-oven regardless of altitude or other factors. WINCON™ is an advanced Windows-based software system for controlling the operation of BTU thermal processing equipment. It combines both the simplicity of a graphical user interface with powerful diagnostic and analytical tools.
