BTU International Wins NPI Award for PYRAMAX Solder Reflow Capabilities

Apr 20, 2011

PYRAMAX reflow ovens set the industry standard for thermal performance, providing electronics manufacturers with the highest throughput — and now increased flexibility.

PYRAMAX reflow ovens set the industry standard for thermal performance, providing electronics manufacturers with the highest throughput — and now increased flexibility.

BTU International, Inc., (Nasdaq: BTUI) a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment and processes for the alternative energy and electronics manufacturing markets, has been awarded the 2011 NPI Award in the category of Soldering – Reflow for the new dual-lane, dual-speed capabilities of its PYRAMAX™ solder reflow system. The award was presented to the company during an April 12, 2011 ceremony at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas during IPC APEX 2011.

Dual-lane reflow ovens have been used for years to increase production in a single reflow oven by allowing two boards to be run at the same time in parallel. Until recently dual-lane processing has been limited to running identical or nearly identical boards in each of the lanes. However, the new BTU dual-lane reflow ovens with independent lane speeds now make it possible to run boards with larger differences, simultaneously.

PYRAMAX reflow ovens set the industry standard for thermal performance, providing electronics manufacturers with the highest throughput - and now increased flexibility - to compete successfully in today's challenging marketplace. BTU's exclusive closed-loop convection control provides precise heating and cooling control, constant heat transfer, maximum process control and reduced nitrogen consumption, resulting in the lowest cost-of-ownership in the industry. PYRAMAX is the industry's most versatile performer and its best value.

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
