BTU International Discovers Unexpected Savings When Transferring Recipes between Ovens

Presentation at SMTA International describes methodology used to transfer recipes from an 8-zone oven to a 10-zone oven

NORTH BILLERICA, MA - Fred Dimock, process technology manager at BTU International, will present a paper titled “Experiences in Transferring Recipes from an Eight Zone Reflow Oven to a Ten Zone Oven” at the upcoming SMTA International Conference.

This practical presentation describes the methodology used to quickly transfer numerous recipes from an eight zone reflow oven to a ten zone oven for a high-mix contract manufacturer.

A contract manufacturer had developed a large number of recipes for his eight zone ovens over many years and needed a way to convert them to new ten zone ovens with minimal downtime, cost, and risk. Although the safest method would have been to profile each product, it was impossible because of the large number of products and production demands.

Initial discussions suggested that the focus should be on the current products with the highest demand, but the list quickly got too large, thus the procedures outlined in this presentation were developed. As the program progressed, it became apparent that there were unexpected savings.

The conference is scheduled to take place October 24 - 28, 2010 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, FL. The presentation will be held during Session SMT5, titled “Reflow and Soldering Technologies,” on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 from 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. in room Asia 2.
