BTU profile

BTU profile | 13 August, 2002

Hello again.... I have been reading up on profiles and how to set them up for different results. I now have an upcomming job with some strict guidlines on reflow. I was wondering... if I were to email a pic of my desired profile could someone out there give me some idea of where to start as far as zone temps and chain speed to achieve the desired profile. As of yet we have no true profiler. We plan to get one before production but I would like to be in the ballpark when it arrives. I use a BTU 04 with 10 heating zones. I am very new to this so I would appreciate any help. I can email the pic and any other info needed. Thanks Tony

The major profiler companies [ie, KIC, ECD, etc] give away FREE Excel spread sheets that list everyone's oven and paste and allow you to input board characteristics and then it suggests a profile. Go get one.

I thank you, my company thanks you, my boards thank you and my kids thank you (they will still get to eat if I get this right)
