BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, today announced that it has received a repeat order from a North American-based customer for multiple PYRAMAX™ 125A units for LED assembly applications. PYRAMAX’s wide board capability and thermal uniformity were key factors in the purchase decision for the recent follow-on order.
“PYRAMAX, with numerous LED assembly installations worldwide, has proven an excellent fit for LED manufacturing due to the large board capability and uncompromised thermal uniformity across the entire 24" width,” said Peter Tallian, general manager of BTU International. “This follow-on order is consistent with an increase in LED installations in North America and other regions in the past quarters. Additionally, LED is a key application for our high-temperature custom furnace business.”
