“It is hard to believe that we already have been in business for 15 years. I have a photo of my business partner, Ray Willett, and I shaking hands over the first unit we shipped, an RD2 model vapor phase that shipped to Norway. We have worked consistently over the years to innovate vapor phase reflow, and now vapor phase rework equipment and processes. With the RD52 high-volume inline vapor phase oven, which is a perfect marriage of radiant/convection preheat technology and the unsurpassed uniformity of vapor phase reflow technology, and the V-Works 24, the industry’s first vapor phase rework system, we have shown that we are continuously innovating,” said David Suihkonen, President of R&D Technical Services Inc.
As the leading innovator of vapor phase technology, R&D provides equipment for numerous markets including SMT reflow, lead-free reflow, curing, drying, mechanical attachment and plastic package testing. The company offers a superior solder reflow process by combining the best characteristics of both radiant/convection preheating for optimum solder paste conditioning prior to reflow and vapor phase reflow technology for excellent peak temperature uniformity and repeatability. With its new “Vapor Works” division, R&D is responsible for the world’s first Vapor Phase Rework System, offering new solutions to the evermore challenging rework industry.
“We would like to thank all of the customers that have put their trust in us over the years and we plan to continue to earn that trust in the future. Here’s to the next 15 years being even better with more innovative products and more very satisfied customers,” added Suihkonen.
