NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., March 2018 — BTU International, Inc., a supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing market, will exhibit at NEPCON China, scheduled to take place April 24-26, 2018 at the Shanghai World EXPO Exhibition & Convention Center. The company will showcase the Profile Guardian Redundant Process Monitor and PYRAMAX™ 125N Reflow Oven in Stand 1F25.
“We’ve expanded our offerings significantly this year, not only increasing our software capabilities to further satisfy Industry 4.0 but to also use PYRAMAX technology to solve process problems such as voiding and substrate warpage,” said Bob Bouchard, corporate marketing manager for BTU. “We’re excited to share these developments with our customers,” added Bouchard.
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.
The PYRAMAX 125N features a 24″ width process chamber enabling the processing of large boards for LED and other applications. The PYRAMAX family of reflow ovens also includes the PYRAMAX Vacuum to eliminate solder voids, the PYRAMAX ZeroTurn dual chamber reflow oven to eliminate changeover time, and the PYRAMAX TrueFlat for substrate flatness.
