BTU International reduces Pyramax cost of ownership
Jul 13, 2005
BTU International, Inc. has said it has succeeded in driving the cost of ownership of its Pyramax solder reflow ovens still lower through significant reduction in nitrogen consumption.
"The Pyramax platform has always been focused on achieving the lowest cost of ownership. As part of their continued focus, BTU engineers were able to further reduce the use of nitrogen by a significant degree," says Tom Nash, Vice President, Global Marketing and Operations. BTU successfully reduced costs with no sacrifice in the reliable performance for which Pyramax is known, Nash adds.
Features such as BTU's exclusive Closed Loop Convection Control for heating and cooling zones, the patented Flux Management System and ergonomic maintenance design contribute to maximum process control, enhanced temperature uniformity, guaranteed process repeatability from line to line and site to site, and easy maintenance. Additionally in the longer term, the Pyramax oven's Lead Free Ready Features are designed to ease the transition to lead-free manufacturing without losing productivity.
Pyramax will be on display, July 12--14 at SEMICON West, Booth No. 7637, 1st Level, Moscone Center, San Francisco.
