BTU picks up two Mexico Technology Awards

NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., November 15, 2018 — BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing market, announces that it was awarded two 2018 Mexico Technology Awards during the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum. The awards were presented to the company for its PYRAMAX™ Vacuum reflow oven and TrueFlat technology during a Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018 ceremony that took place during the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum.

“Our new Pyramax Vacuum reflow oven and the Pyramax TrueFlat were introduced to solve urgent, yield-killing reflow issues,” said Paul Lancaster, director of sales in the Americas.   “The Pyramax Vacuum addresses solder voiding while the TrueFlat is keeping the thinnest substrates flat during thermal processing in packaging, flex-circuit and LED applications,” added Lancaster.

Reflow oven awards

BTU’s Fred Dimock and Rob DiMatteo accept the awards from Mexico EMS’s Ron Friedman.

BTU won in the category of Soldering Equipment – Reflow for its PYRAMAX Vacuum reflow oven. The new oven has been designed around the requirements of large EMS/high-volume automotive customers. The unit is configured with 10 zones of closed-loop convection heating and a maximum production width of 18″. Nitrogen atmosphere capable, the PYRAMAX Vacuum reflow oven offers a maximum process temperature of 350° C.

The company also was awarded for the TrueFlat technology in the Soldering – Other category. Designed for very thin substrates of 0.15 to 0.30mm, TrueFlat technology ends die tilt. The result is consistent and repeatable flatness, and superior thermal uniformity due to the PYRAMAX’s closed-loop convection heating. The new PYRAMAX with TrueFlat technology does not impact reflow oven footprint, making it easy to transition from existing reflow processes.

The Mexico Technology Awards recognize the best new innovations in the electronics manufacturing industry in Mexico. The goal of the award program is to celebrate the companies and people that are achieving the highest standards and driving the industry forward.
