BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, today announced that it will exhibit with its representative, EPP Electronic Production Partners, GmbH, at the productronica International Trade Fair, scheduled to take place Nov. 10-13, 2015, at the Messe München exhibition center in Munich, Germany. Representatives from BTU and EPP will demonstrate the PYRAMAX™ reflow oven and its enhanced ENERGY PILOT software, and BTU's high temperature controlled atmosphere furnaces in Hall A3, Booth 154.
BTU’s PYRAMAX convection reflow oven is the benchmark for performance in the industry. The PYRAMAX features a maximum temperature of 400°C and a comprehensive menu of options. PYRAMAX systems, featuring BTU’s exclusive closed-loop convection technology, provide optimized lead-free processing for the ultimate in productivity and efficiency.
ENERGY PILOT is a feature in the latest release of BTU’s windows-based WINCON™ operating system. The ENERGY PILOT software saves manufacturers money whenever the oven is idle. Standby mode can save more than 25 percent. Sleep mode can be used for longer interruptions saving more than 40 percent. Long idle periods fully shut down the oven using hibernate mode. Recovery times are minimized using remote product sensors and SMEMA. Operation is fully automatic and results in an overall reduction in electrical, air and nitrogen consumption and includes monitoring down to the cost per unit level. The feature is easily upgradeable on older BTU reflow ovens.
BTU has gained recognition as the world's leading supplier of conveyor furnaces to the electronics industry. Its controlled atmosphere furnaces are available with temperature ranges up to 1800°C and various process atmospheres including hydrogen, nitrogen and argon. Excellent atmosphere purity is achieved through the use of BTU’s patented gas barrier technology.For more information, visit www.btu.com.
