Electronics production without electricity – unthinkable! The biggest electricity consumers in SMT production are reflow ovens. Used worldwide in many electronic manufacturing production sites this soldering process is at the same time a very inefficient method for soldering. The extremely high power consumption of reflow systems is due to heat transfer via air.
However, there is a very effective alternative: heat transfer by liquid – Vapor Phase Soldering (also known as condensation soldering).“
A basic comparison
Vapor-Phase-Soldering uses fluid and therefore allows more than 20 times better heat transfer than air! As a result, power consumption is reduced by up to 75% when using an ASSCON Vapor Phase Soldering System. Will you still be able to afford reflow soldering with air in the future?
What does the future hold for us?
In the near future energy costs will increase significantly and for the long run.
