BTU’s Fred Dimock Will Discuss How to Reduce Reflow Costs at SMTA Monterrey

Apr 04, 2016

BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, today announced that Fred Dimock will present during the SMTA Monterrey Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, April 14th at the Crowne Plaza Hotel (Apodaca) in Monterrey. Dimock will discuss how to reduce reflow costs.

The presentation is designed for the SMT engineers/technicians that want a better understanding of methods to reduce reflow process costs. Mr. Dimock will highlight methods and tools that can be used to lower energy costs while maintaining profiles that are with-in the solder manufacturer’s reflow specifications.

Dimock is the manager of process technology at BTU International. He holds an Associate’s 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.

Also at the show, BTU will demonstrate the Energy Pilot software that 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. The feature takes advantage of the Pyramax’s superior response time allowing the oven to return to ready very quickly, not disrupting product flow.

Energy Pilot is a feature of BTU’s proprietary Wincon operating system and is available to existing Pyramax users by upgrading Wincon to the latest version.
