BTU’s Energy Pilot Saves Manufacturers Money Whenever the Oven is Idle

NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., September 9, 2016— BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, will exhibit in Booth #835 at IMAPS Pasadena, scheduled to take place Oct. 10-13, 2016 at the Pasadena Convention Center. BTU will showcase its RecipePro recipe generator software, jointly developed with Electronic Controls Design Inc. (ECD), along with the latest version of the Energy Pilot software and Industry 4.0 compliant solutions.

The Energy Pilot software saves manufacturers money whenever the oven is idle.  Standby mode can save more than 25 percent. Sleep mode can be used for longer interruptions saving more than 40 percent. Long idle periods fully shut down the oven using hibernate mode. Recovery times are minimized using remote product sensors and SMEMA. Operation is fully automatic and results in an overall reduction in electrical, air and nitrogen consumption. The feature takes advantage of the Pyramax’s superior response time allowing the oven to return to ready very quickly without disrupting product flow.

The integration of ECD’s recipe generator technology into BTU’s advanced reflow systems offers manufacturers a streamlined and effective approach to initial recipe generation for higher yield results. The profiler will reduce non-productive time by streamlining the set-up process. RecipePro is included with new Pyramax reflow ovens that are configured with convection control. RecipePro is the only recipe generation tool in the industry to include convection rate in the recipe generator algorithm, pairing it perfectly with PYRAMAX™’s closed-loop convection control.

Energy Pilot and RecipePro are features of BTU’s proprietary Wincon operating system and are available to existing Pyramax users by upgrading Wincon to the latest version.
