BTU International, Inc. today announced that Fred Dimock will present "Reducing Reflow Costs in a Challenging Economy" at the upcoming San Diego SMTA Chapter monthly meeting, scheduled to take place Wednesday, September 18, 2013, at the Qualcomm facility.

The presentation will highlight methods that can be used to lower energy costs of a reflow oven while maintaining profiles that are within the solder manufacturer's specifications. When budgets tighten, engineers are challenged to find ways to reduce manufacturing costs. Although the focus in an SMT process is typically on identifying less expensive materials and reducing scrap, the efficient operation of a reflow oven is often overlooked.

Fred Dimock is the Manager of Process Technology at BTU International in Massachusetts. He holds an Associate Degree in Mechanical Design from Wentworth in Boston and a Bachelor's Degree in Ceramic Engineering from the State University of New York at Alfred (SUNY). His extensive experience in thermal processing includes positions at Corning, General Electric, and Osram-Sylvania before joining BTU.


BTU International is global supplier and technology leader of advanced thermal processing equipment and processes to the electronics and alternative energy manufacturing markets. BTU equipment is used in the production of printed circuit board assemblies and semiconductor packaging as well as in solar cell and nuclear fuel manufacturing. BTU has operations in North Billerica, Massachusetts and Shanghai, China with direct sales and service in the USA, Asia and Europe.www.btu.com.
