BTU to Introduce the PYRAMAX™ ZeroTurn Dual Chamber System at APEX

NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., January 10, 2017 — BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, today announced plans to make a major new product introduction at the 2017 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Feb. 14-16, 2017 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. BTU will introduce the PYRAMAX ZeroTurn Dual Chamber system in booth #835.

“The new PYRAMAX ZeroTurn not only allows our customers to get more out of their reflow oven, it allows them to get more out of their whole factory,” said Bob Bouchard, corporate marketing manager of BTU International. “Never again will the SMT line wait for the reflow oven to change recipes. And this benefit comes with zero process sacrifice – due to the robust construction of the ZeroTurn, we maintain our industry leading cross-belt thermal uniformity,” added Bouchard.

The PYRAMAX ZeroTurn is designed for high volume electronics manufacturers who must also manage process mix and are dissatisfied with the poor process separation of other dual chamber machines. The true dual chamber machine eliminates turnaround/waiting time when switching thermal profiles. Unlike the competition, the ZeroTurn has the industry’s best thermal isolation between chambers, allowing for precise process control and unaffected thermal uniformity.

BTU will also showcase its technology-leading Industry 4.0 solutions and offer hands-on demonstrations. These technologies include line control and communications, recipe development and energy savings software solutions.
