Essemtec's Compact Desk Reflow and Curing Oven Offers Lead-Free Soldering Capability

Dec 06, 2008

The RO06-PLUS batch oven from Essemtec offers lead-free soldering capability as well as curing programs with durations up to 18 hours. The oven features a small footprint, integrated microprocessor control and fully automatic processing. Its main applications include prototyping, small batch manufacturing and testing.

RO06-PLUS is easy to operate. The integrated microprocessor control provides a large set of predefined soldering and curing programs to make it simple for beginners. For experienced users the control includes enough free memory for their own temperature profiles. Temperatures up to 300�C and process times up to 18 hours can be stored.

The large view window allows the process to be observed. This feature, in combination with the unique process pausing function, is mainly used in the areas of material testing or process evaluation. If a new soldering profile or materials have to be evaluated, the soldering process can be extended manually until the desired result can be observed through the window.

For process documentation, the oven can measure temperatures directly on the processed materials by thermocouples. Zone and material temperatures are shown on the integrated LCD or can be transmitted via an RS232 interface to external plotting and recording software such as RO-SOFT.

The RO06-PLUS consists of two process zones, a sealed heat chamber and an open cooling section. A motorized drawer drives the substrates between the two zones, which offer fully automatic processing. The oven features an integrated microprocessor control that ensures soldering or curing temperatures and times are met according to the program.

The RO06-PLUS reflow oven meets the process requirements for lead-free soldering. The hot process chamber includes a full convection heating system for even temperature distribution with smallest Delta-T values and the quartz lamp support enables steep ramping. The processing capabilities, the automated process flow and the feasibility of storing various profiles have made RO06-PLUS the preferred solution in the lab and in low-volume manufacturing all over the world.

With this system, users also have access to Essemtec's remote maintenance system and to the user portal on the Internet. Additionally, Essemtec's Flex2-Services program offers attractive solutions for financing and service.
