BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the alternative energy and electronics manufacturing markets, will highlight its next-generation High Efficiency (HE) Flux Management and new dual-lane, dual-speed capabilities of the PYRAMAX™ solder reflow system in Booth #3409 at the upcoming IPC APEX Expo, scheduled for February 28 - March 1, 2012, at the San Diego Convention Center in California.

PYRAMAX™ reflow ovens set the industry standard for thermal performance, providing electronics manufacturers with the highest throughput to compete successfully in today’s challenging marketplace. The HE Flux Management system further extends the maintenance cycle, a new design that ensures clean oven operation.

The HE Flux management system collects flux residue by processing oven atmosphere from multiple extraction points through a series of heat exchangers. To reduce the downtime associated with oven maintenance, the HE flux management system is designed to allow service while the oven is in production (true on-the-fly maintenance).

Dual-lane reflow ovens have been used to increase production in a single reflow oven by allowing two boards to be run at the same time in parallel with identical or nearly identical boards. Now, by using independent lane speeds, it is possible to achieve independent thermal profiles and run boards with significant differences, simultaneously.

For more information about BTU’s HE Flux Management system or dual-lane, dual-speed capability, meet company representatives at the IPC APEX Expo in San Diego or visit www.btu.com.
