BTU International to Launch Pyramax 100 Range at Productronica 2007

Nov 01, 2007

Farnborough, UK - November 2, 2007� BTU Europe, a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy generation markets, announces it will launch the Pyramax 100 range in hall A4, booth 141 at the upcoming Productronica 2007 exhibition and conference scheduled to take place November 13-16, 2007 at the Munich Trade Fair Center in Munich, Germany.

Pyramax 100 is offered as an 8-zone air (100A) or low consumption nitrogen (100N) solution, both providing repeatable process control to ease the transition to lead-free. With a flexible platform configuration, BTU�s exclusive closed loop convection control has been built into the forced impingement convection oven, with side-to-side air/gas recirculation to enhance temperature uniformity and guarantee process repeatability from system to system and site to site. With a maximum temperature of 350�C, it provides excellent convection efficiency to reduce zone temperature set points and offers maximum flexibility in process control.

The Pyramax 100�s innovative water cooling system features closed loop cooling control for variable cooling rates and increased process control, with a sliding heat exchanger assembly to enable easy access for maintenance. The cost saving patented Flux Management System traps flux from the process chamber to prevent it from settling within the oven, resulting in valuable increased uptime. Pyramax 100 also provides multiple extraction locations to maximize overall efficiency of the system and an easy to access filtration and trap. Together with its �on the fly� maintenance, these features combine in demonstrating an oven which offers very low cost of ownership.

Bundled specifications include a conveyor speed of 254 � 1524 mm/min (10-60 in/min) with a 50 mm-457 mm (2-18 in) width. 8 top/8 bottom heat zones with a heated length of 2540 mm (100�). 1 top cooling zone and optional bottom zone in the air option, with 1 or 2 top and 1 or 2 optional bottom in the nitrogen gas solution. The system has a footprint of 4648 mm (183"), 1524 mm (60") in height and width, with a voltage range of 208 - 480 VAC. While bundled features also include WINCON Control software, Smart Product Tracking, belt and rail conveyors with fine mesh belts, high power heaters, retractable center support, automatic wafer handling/width adjustment and gas sampling together with dynamic gas idle.
