EVS International, the leader in solder recovery, will introduce the newest system in its award-winning EVS series, the new EVS 8K LFHS Lead-Free Solder Recovery System, in distributor Sono-Tek’s Booth #3400 at the upcoming IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place February 19-21, 2013 at the San Diego Convention Center.
EVS International has worked extensively with the global marketplace to gain invaluable feedback from which to develop enhanced solder dross recovery solutions that surpass the high standards required from a modern manufacturing environment, particularly with regard to significant improvement of thermal efficiency, ease of operation, maintenance and environmental management. The new EVS 8K is the result of this process and offers manufacturers solutions for all of their existing issues to deliver a reduced carbon footprint, advanced electronic controls and integrated diagnostics.
EVS has listened to both customer and distributor feedback and responded with many upgrades, exciting innovative changes and improvements to its solder recovery system range. The new solution contains multi-stroke software, which significantly increases solder recovery rates by an impressive 15-20 percent; a new no hinges door concept, resulting in greater and easier access when performing cleaning stop and PM; and a new, improved loading tray that broadens the loading area and keeps the top of the EVS even cleaner.
The pioneering High Solids Filtration System on the new Lead-Free EVS 8K 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 wheels 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 simple 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.
EVS Director Simon Norman stated, “We are continually looking to improve the EVS machines and take everyone’s feedback very seriously. After listening to both comments from customers and suggestions from our distributors, we have acted on the feedback given and developed an upgraded version of our lead-free machines. We look forward to displaying the new system soon and we are confident that the global marketplace will be very happy with the results. EVS would like to thank its customers and distributors for their continued support, which has helped to make EVS Solder Recovery Systems number one in our industry.”
