BTU International to Showcase Advanced Reflow Technologies at SMTconnect

NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., May 7, 2019 — BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, will exhibit at SMTconnect, scheduled to take place May 7-9, 2019 at the Nurnberg Messe GmbH in Nuremberg, Germany. The company will showcase its new, award-winning Aqua Scrub flux management technology, and the Profile Guardian redundant monitoring system. The booth, in Hall 4, Stand 551, will feature a PYRAMAX ™ 100A convection reflow oven.

Aqua Scrub Technology is BTU’s next-generation solder reflow flux management system. The patent-pending design uses an aqueous-based scrubber technology compatible with most known paste and flux types. The flux and solution are automatically contained and packaged for disposal.  The Aqua Scrub is designed to decrease operational cost by 4X over traditional condensation systems

Profile Guardian pairs a thermocouple probe at product height with software to monitor temperature deviation from baseline – independent from control TCs. Monitor data is fully integrated with 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 100A features 100″ of heated length and eight zones, 350ºC maximum temperature, flexible platform configuration, low power consumption, and a comprehensive menu of options. In addition, the PYRAMAX features BTU’s proprietary WINCON™ control system. WINCON features a simplified user interface and incredibly powerful analytical capabilities.
