EVS International�s EVS 1000 Solder Recovery System Wins a 2008 NPI Award

Apr 07, 2008

March 31, 2008 - EVS International, the leader in solder recovery, announces that it has been awarded an NPI Award in the category of �Soldering, Other� for its innovative EVS 1000 Solder Recovery System. The award was presented to the company during a Monday, March 31, 2008 ceremony that took place in the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas before the start of APEX 2008.

The EVS 1000 system is part of the EVS Series, which represents a quantum leap in the processing of solder dross. The series� sleek lines confirm the streamlined system, advanced electronic controls and integrated diagnostics. Extensive feedback from the market has enabled EVS International to offer machines that satisfy the high standards required from a modern manufacturing environment particularly with regard to reliability, ease of operation, maintenance and environmental management.

The EVS 1000 integrates all of the recovery performance of the standard and lead-free solder units. The smaller size, footprint and much easier access for maintenance help reduce the cost, giving a rapid payback and impressive return on capital used. Additionally, the system provides a capacity of 10 lb/5 kg of dross, and an integrated hopper that makes rapid transfer of dross both simpler and safer, and speeds dedrossing times by up to 75 percent. This provides a cleaner wave with less maintenance, less downtime, and a reduction in shorts and bridging as well as the potential to discontinue the use of messy wave oils and/or dross reduction powders.

The EVS 1000 can quickly convert waste dross into pure solder in minutes not hours, while improving the wave solder machine process. This provides a cleaner wave with less maintenance, less downtime, and a reduction in shorts and bridging as well as the potential to discontinue the use of messy wave oils and/or dross reduction powders.

The EVS 1000 is aimed at small to medium users who typically have one to three wave solder machines and who must regularly dedross or use nitrogen to reduce drossing. This group currently comprises the majority of users in the industry. By using the EVS, nitrogen can be dramatically reduced or eliminated, resulting in significant cost savings.

The process used by the EVS series is unique to EVS International and is protected worldwide by established and pending patents for not only the product but the process. Simple in concept but revolutionary in its effect, the series breaks new ground in the efficient regeneration of waste in a shop floor environment.

The EVS systems feature an enclosed automated system. Hot dross is loaded into the large hopper and sealed into the machine. The process, once started by the operator, recovers the solder into a solder tray in the form of ingots that are easily placed back into the solder pot and deposits the spent dross automatically through a chute to a covered dross bin. Air is extracted via a powerful integral standalone, multi-part filtration system, which ensures that the emitted air is usually cleaner than the surrounding workplace.

A Hopper Extraction System is used to prevent the escape of any fumes and dust that may be generated when loading. An automatic air-knife cools the molten solder ingots until they are safe to handle. Premature removal of the ingot tray is prevented by a safety lock. Handling and moving of dross is reduced to a minimum as it is contained within the EVS until it is automatically ejected into the dross bucket.

Extensive safety features are built into the machine protecting against misuse and abuse. A variety of switches and sensors are deployed and electrical and electronic circuitry is fuse protected. Maintenance is assisted by prompts from the LCD read out and facilitated by easy access to all working parts of the machine. Routine cleaning can be carried out from a comfortable standing position.

The new EVS platform is designed for simple, one-person operation on the shop floor using existing staff. There are no complex installation procedures, just plug it in to a single-phase supply and a six bar airline and it is ready to go.

EVS significantly enhances a facility�s ability to attain or retain the world environmental standard 14001 as recovering pure solder from waste dross fits in perfectly with the ISO 14001 mantra of RECYCLE � REDUCE � REUSE

With the price of solder at a 20-year high, EVS � with its extended range � can now offer the proven advantages of on site recovery to all wave users from the one wave operator to the biggest multi-wave production facility.

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
