The Rehm team will be demonstrating its advanced, vacuum-capable Condenso condensation soldering system at the show. Apex visitors will be able to discover how condensation soldering, also known as vapour phase soldering, delivers ten times the heating efficiency of convection soldering, and produces a much more uniform temperature distribution during the reflow process. Ideal for thermally challenging PCB assemblies requiring a lead-free solder process, Condenso also eliminates the potential for thermal damage to components or PCBs. A vacuum option can be combined with the reflow process to produce virtually void-free solder joints, Condenso enables consistently high quality soldering, regardless of PCB complexity.
Also on show on booth 635 will be Rehm's VisionXS convection reflow residue management system, featuring its pioneering Pyrolysis technology. Pyrolysis is the thermally induced decomposition of organic compounds, enabling complex molecules to be broken down into simpler substances with the use of elevated temperatures in a largely oxygen-free environment. Liquid and crystalline residues are drastically reduced, enabling unprecedented efficiency and dramatically increased maintenance intervals of up to one year.
Commenting on Rehm’s presence at the forthcoming Apex exhibition, the company’s General Manager, John Bashe, explains: "As our North American customers know, we never rest in our endeavour to develop next-generation reflow processes. Everything we do is designed to boost our customers’ productivity; it’s the driving force behind our ongoing innovation. Visitors to our Apex booth will see this for themselves, finding out first hand how our advanced thermal solutions can meet the diverse reflow requirements that are often beyond traditional reflow systems. Our team is looking forward to showing Apex visitors how we can help them achieve their business goals!"
