BTU International to Highlight New Features of PYRAMAX™ Solder Reflow Oven at SMTA Penang Vendor Show 2011

A new Dual-Lane Dual-Speedsolder reflow system, plus HE Flux Management will be highlighted at the show.

NORTH BILLERICA, Mass.,Oct. 10, 2011— BTU International, a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the alternative energy and electronics manufacturing markets, will showcase its new dual- lane dual-speed capabilities of the PYRAMAX™ solder reflow system, as well as next generation HE Flux Management, at the upcoming SMTA Penang Vendor Show on October 28, 2011, at the table #27 at the Eastin Hotel in Penang, Malaysia.

PYRAMAX reflow ovens set the industry standard for thermal performance, providing electronics manufacturers with the highest throughput to compete successfully in today’s challenging marketplace. At SMTA Penang Vendor Show, new advances in productivity will be highlighted, allowing customers to maximize their operations.

Dual-lanereflow ovens have been used to increase production in a single reflow oven by allowing two boards to be run at the same time in parallel with identical or nearly identical boards. Now, by using independent lane speeds, it is possible to achieve independent thermal profiles and run boards with significant differences simultaneously. Additionally, the HE Flux Management system further extends the maintenance cycleand is easy to maintain with automated feedback of servicing requirements.

BTU’s exclusive closed-loop convection control provides precise heating and cooling control, constant heat transfer, maximum process control, and low nitrogen consumption, resulting in the lowest cost-of-ownership in the industry. PYRAMAX is the industry’s most versatile performer and its best value.
