EVS International, the leader in solder recovery, announces that it has been awarded a 2013 NPI Award in the category of Soldering – Other for its EVS 10K Solder Recovery Machine. The award was presented to the company during this year's NPI Award ceremony that took place on February 19, 2013 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. This year marks the company’s fifth consecutive NPI Award.
EVS 10K is a totally stand-alone unit that utilizes the heat from the solder pot to enhance the recovery from the solder dross. Additionally it can reduce any Nitrogen used by customers by up to 65 percent, lowering manufacturing costs by a significant amount. 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, “EVS International is continually looking to improve its EVS range of machines and we take our customers comments very seriously. We have acted to develop, improve and upgrade the lead and lead-free machines with significant advances in operating simplicity, software integration and improved efficiency. Our distributors and partners positive comments helped make this a rewarding exercise.”
EVS is delighted that the NPI Award program and the industry has recognized these efforts with the creation of the new 10K Solder Recovery System. These numerous improvements are designed to reduce the carbon footprint, improve the already impressive return on investment (ROI) and operating efficiency while significantly improving access and ease of service.
EVS is confident that these improvements will solidify the company’s number one position as the world leader in solder recovery where carbon foot print reduction is just as important as the very fast ROI and the important customers’ nitrogen reduction. The company is continually looking to expand the choices available to its customers, and its research and development team is dedicated to bringing new concepts and processes.
