Win Marks BTU’s 15th Industry Award in Five Years

BTU International, Inc. (Nasdaq: BTUI) a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment and processes for the alternative energy and electronics manufacturing markets, announces that it has been awarded a Global Technology Award in the category of Soldering Equipment for the new dual-lane, dual-speed capabilities of its PYRAMAX™ solder reflow system. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, November 15, 2011 ceremony that took place at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany during Productronica 2011. This marks BTU’s 15th industry award in the past five years, and its fifth Global Technology Award.

Dual-lane reflow ovens have been used for years to increase production in a single reflow oven by allowing two boards to be run at the same time in parallel. Until recently dual-lane processing has been limited to running identical or nearly identical boards in each of the lanes. However, the new BTU dual-lane reflow ovens with independent lane speeds now make it possible to run boards with larger differences, simultaneously. 

PYRAMAX reflow ovens set the industry standard for thermal performance, providing electronics manufacturers with the highest throughput-and now increased flexibility-to compete successfully in today’s challenging marketplace. BTU’s exclusive closed-loop convection control provides precise heating and cooling control, constant heat transfer, maximum process control and reduced nitrogen consumption, resulting in the lowest cost-of-ownership in the industry. PYRAMAX is the industry’s most versatile performer and its best value.

Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.


BTU International is a market-leading, global supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment to the alternative energy and electronics assembly markets. BTU’s equipment and expertise are used in the manufacturing of solar cells and nuclear fuel as well as the production of printed circuit board assemblies and semiconductor packaging.
