Batch reflow oven | 16 March, 1999

Looking for a company that makes a small batch reflow oven. Not a belt-style convection oven, but a cabinet style that can 125 c to 150 c.

Thank you

Beyond this point, you BTU people, though I operate 5 of them, really are a bit snobish. What right have you to put down the man with a serious question even if your damn in line ovens cook anything better than a "Black Agnus" (I meant the spelling to be as is) restaurant. Hell, we are running only two profiles for nine different board classifications from this or that - to 30 layers with all mix types - with or without N2.

Lighten up, or maybe you have and I haven't yet,

Give um hell Earl. the guy is looking for an inexpensive batch oven. Might try Ble M or Tera Universal. Think both companies offer batch type ovens not too sure of the price.

They seemed to want to be either ON or OFF. And they weren't real consistant. Batch oven anufactures/ distributors will loan you ovens. I suggest that you run a couple of boards in a couple of ovens to determine the concession that you are willing to make.

There are several bench top in-line ovens out there with realtively good profiling capabilities. Also, there is a fairly robust market for used in-line ovens. BUT, I suspect you have a specific reason for searching for the batch oven that you mentioned. Good luck. Dave F

I have a friend who does a lot of hobby work and he bought two toaster ovens (Black & Decker I recall) from the thrift shop, he set one at 160 (or so) for presoak and the other at 230 (or so) for reflow - you'll want to experiment a little. A bit tricky and you don't want to waste time shuttling the board across but it worked. NOT recommended for production...

There are a number of very small "conveyor" ovens that are close to the size of a batch oven (4 to 5 feet long with conveyor) such as Manncorp or Mannix; or you can go to OK Industries and look at their batch oven (JEM 210) with 5-zone programming for boards under 8" by 11" that's the size of a large laser printer.

Hope this helps...

Good Luck, Scott
