EVS International's EVS 7000 Wins a 2009 Innovation Award

Apr 23, 2009

April 2009 - EVS International announces that it has been awarded a 2009 EMAsia Innovation Award in the category of Wave Soldering Equipment for its EVS 7000 system. The award was presented to the company during an April 22, 2009 ceremony that took place at the Shanghai Everbright International Hotel during Nepcon China 2009.

EVS International worked with the global marketplace to gain invaluable feedback from which to develop solder dross recovery solutions that satisfy the high standards required from a modern manufacturing environment � particularly with regard to reliability, ease of operation, maintenance and environmental management. The new EVS 7000 is a culmination of this process and offers manufacturers solutions for all of these issues with reduced footprint, advanced electronic controls and integrated diagnostics.

The EVS7000 offers a capacity of 10 kg/20 lb, and has the ability for single operation de-drossing of even the largest wave soldering machines. Its integrated hopper makes rapid transfer of dross both simpler and safer, and speeds de-drossing 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 process uses heat and pressure inside a magnetized cylinder to separate and return pure solder into an ingot tray. The remainder of the material is automatically ejected down a sealed chute into a dross bucket. Hundreds of solder assays prove that the recovered pure solder is exactly the same specification as the solder in the WSM pot. This has been authenticated by the solder manufacturers and confirmed by the International Tin Research Institute. EVS International supports its product through 24-hour availability of spares and service and by partnering with quality distributors who have trained technicians and comprehensive spares stockholding.

The system offers the benefit of a rapid return on investment by recovering 50-70 percent pure solder from dross, with savings of up to 50 percent in solder costs. It will reduce dross off site by up to 70 percent, while reducing de-drossing time by up to 85 percent. The system provides a self-contained process to reduce the handling of dross and uses no chemicals, additives or toxic substances. EVS7000 will help a company to attain and retain ISO14001 accreditation; with the added benefit of improving wave solder machine effectiveness. These new solution follows on the heels of EVS International's highly successful EVS 1000, which gained global approval with multiple industry awards, including �Product of the Year� at the most recent Productronica.

If the EVS7000 does not meet a company's specific needs, EVS offers other solder recovery systems that will. The company's series of units � 1000, 7000 and 9000 � have a capacity range of 5-20 kg that will cover any wave solder machine needs.
