BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, announces that it has been awarded a 2016 EM Asia Innovation Award in the category of Software – Process Control for its RecipePro recipe generator software. The award was presented to the company during an April 27, 2016, ceremony at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center during NEPCON China. The new Recipe Pro recipe generator software was jointly developed with Electronic Controls Design Inc. (ECD).
“We introduced this tool in order to further lower the Cost of Ownership of our Pyramax reflow oven by minimizing set-up time,” said Bob Bouchard corporate marketing manager for BTU International. “ECD has long understood the important effect of convection rate on the thermal profile. This is the only recipe generator in the industry to include this important parameter,” added Bouchard.
Integrating ECD’s recipe generator technology into BTU’s advanced reflow systems offers manufacturers a streamlined and effective approach to initial recipe generation for higher yield results. The profiler will reduce non-productive time by streamlining the set-up process. Recipe Pro is the only recipe generation tool in the industry to include convection rate in the recipe generator algorithm, pairing it perfectly with PYRAMAX™’s closed-loop convection control.
Established in 2006, the EM Asia Innovation Awards program strives to recognize and celebrate excellence in the Asian electronics industry, inspiring companies to achieve the highest standards and push the industry forward.
