BTU International Receives 30th Award for Advanced Thermal Processing

NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., April 27, 2017 — BTU International, Inc., announces that it has been awarded a 2017 EM Asia Innovation Award in the category of Soldering Systems – Volume Soldering Systems (Reflow Soldering Equipment) for its PYRAMAX ZeroTurn Dual Chamber system. The award was presented to the company during an April 26, 2017 ceremony at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center during NEPCON China.

“We are so proud that our global team continues to be recognized for producing the most innovative, high-performing reflow ovens,” said Peter Tallian, BTU’s general manager. “The ZeroTurn is a fitting addition to the PYRAMAX platform, eliminating recipe changeover time without sacrificing process performance.”

Dual Chamber Reflow OvenThe ZeroTurn dual chamber design eliminates process changeover time while preserving the process control that PYRAMAX is known for.  Zero turnaround means that high volume manufacturers who have to contend with product mix deal with less downtime – enabling higher productivity from the whole line.  This dual chamber design truly isolates the two processes, with independent temperature, belt speed and static pressure convection rate controls.  Lead-free and leaded processes can be at temperature, side-by-side, without affecting cross board thermal uniformity in either chamber.

Established in 2006, the EM Asia Innovation Awards program strives to recognize and celebrate excellence in the Asian electronics industry, inspiring companies to achieve the highest standards and push the industry forward.
