EVS International, the World Leader in Solder Recovery, announces that it has been awarded a 2012 NPI Award from Circuits Assembly magazine in the category of Soldering - Other for its EVS 7000LFHS Solder Recovery System. The award was presented to the company’s President Graham Norman during a Tuesday, February 28, 2012 ceremony that took place at the San Diego Convention Center in California.
The company recently completed a total redesign of the software and thermal insulation, resulting in a significant increase in recovery rates of up to 80 percent by weight by improving the thermal efficiency and redesigning the software and mechanical solder path. These advances in thermal efficiency, software and mechanical efficiency lead to a significant reduction in carbon footprint and enhance EVS’ already high contribution to ISO 14001 [Recycle - Reduce - Reuse], adding to an already impressively fast return on investment (ROI).
The new High Solids Filtration System on the Lead-Free EVS 7000 dramatically increases air flow and dust/smoke capture, which is particularly important with some lead-free fluxes, while maintaining the small footprint of the new four-wheel steer cart with its pull-out service drawer. The system is complete with an LED monitoring system that shows a green light for normal running, an amber light when 75 percent of the combination filter is used, and a red light when the combination filter should be changed - this in-house design is simplicity in itself to maintain with its built-in logic.
With its unique simplicity of operation and high recovery rates, the system provides fast payback and pure solder quality. The solder recovery system also improves the process by reducing shorts, bridging, and rework, significantly improving wave solder machine productivity, cleanliness and lowering pump maintenance and downtime. This package of benefits enhances the ability to attain and retain the corporate environmental standard, ISO 14001.
Simon G. Norman, VP of EVS International comments, “We at EVS are very humbled to receive this prestigious award from one of the premier experts in our industry. It is gratifying that, when we listen to our many customers and take cognizance of their needs to enhance their EVS experience and improve their ROI, we are rewarded with this win. We will treasure this award".
By using the newly enhanced EVS system, users can benefit from up to 50 percent significant savings in solder purchases. Additionally, users of Nitrogen can recycle their dross and turn down their Nitrogen by up to 60 percent with the considerable savings this will bring.
Premiering in 2008, Circuits Assembly’s NPI Award 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.
