BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment to the alternative energy and electronics manufacturing markets, announces that Fred Dimock, process technology manager at BTU International, will present a paper titled “Transferring Recipes from an 8 Zone Reflow Oven to a 10 Zone Oven and Unexpected Savings” during the 2011 Shenzhen International SMT High-Level Conference, which will be held in conjunction with NEPCON South China 2011. The presentation will be held from 2-3 p.m. on August 31 at the Shenzhen Convention Center in Conference Room 3, Rose Hall.
This practical presentation describes the methodology used to quickly transfer numerous recipes from an eight-zone reflow oven to a 10-zone oven for a high-mix contract manufacturer.
