Customers of Vitronics Soltec's successful XPM2 Reflow System can now get all of the performance and reliability that the system is known for, plus some enhanced features, in the XPM2+. There's a lot that's new, while the exterior of the XPM2+ boasts a better, leaner look, the main enhancements are to its conveyor system; cooling system; electrical control system; software and user interface.
The improved features in the XPM2+ are great additions to a proven platform, according to Mick Austin, Sales Director - Americas. "We've kept everything that engineers love about the XPM2 - such as its performance and ease of use; in addition to enhancing it in many ways. The XPM2+ delivers value, durability, and improved functionality. Most important to note is the fact that the heater technology of the XPM2+ has not changed. Thermal profiles developed previously for products processed on existing XPM2 systems are directly transferable to the new XPM2+resulting in seamless integration with their current recipes. It's basically 'plug and play'" he added. "The XPM2+ is a powerful system with excellent thermal transfer, resulting in minimal ΔT's, robust process control, and flexible cooling packages, all designed to handle the challenges of today's lead-free soldering."
