RD1 Batch Type Vapor Phase Reflow System.

RD1 Batch Type Vapor Phase Reflow System.

Vapor phase manufacturer R&D Technical Services Inc. will debut its updated RD1 Batch Type Vapor Phase Reflow System in Booth #2635 at the upcoming IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place April 12-14, 2011 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas.

The RD1 uses vapor phase technology to provide consistent, uniform heat transfer for high quality reflow, curing and drying. The advanced reflow system was designed to accommodate low-volume production and smaller sized products. Additionally, the RD1 delivers user-friendly operation and unsurpassed process control becoming the perfect marriage of convected and vapor phase technologies. The RD1 allows any company, regardless of size, to produce products of the highest quality.

The updated RD1 has a working envelope of 12"L x 10"W x 2.25"H using a version of R&D Technical Services’ patented palletized conveyor system that keeps the product horizontal throughout the process. The system features touch screen controls, a convected preheat zone, programmable recipes, a cooling zone, and a working fluid auxiliary tank and filter system.

To see how simple and inexpensive, yet powerful vapor phase reflow can be, see R&D Technical Services’ RD1 Single Vapor Batch Type Reflow System in Booth #2635 at the show.
