Thick Film


The industry was revolutionized by the develpoment of the first fast-fire thick film firing furnace in the early 80's. Today IR furnaces still provide the fastest heat up and cool down times.

TF Series furnaces can heat up to 1000C and stabilize in less than 10 minutes. When it is time to change profile or shut down, they can cool down to 400C in less than 10 minutes.

Process that requres higher production yield and throughput and feature:
- Start-up in less than 30 minutes for temperature profiles up to 1000C;

- Repeatable profiles;

- No degrade of seal process;

Lower internal cavity moisture content/p>

 comparable hermetic performance;

& - Low ppm defect rates;

- Superior temperature uniformity.

 90% belt edge conveyor load efficiency.

 - Inert atmosphere for fine pitch solder pastes. 

- Diffuse near and medium IR heating efficiency without color selectivity.

SMD-Series Semiconductor Packaging furnaces.  
Choose Air for low cost; Nitrogen (max 500 ppm oxygen) reduces board browning and flux charring for easier cleaning; or Nitorgen (max 5 ppm Oxygen) for 40-60% faster processing speeds, lower defect rates, and improved secondary soldering yields, ideal for high volume critical applications.

Infrared dryers engage transfer of both mass and energy.  Heat is transferred from the IR emitters by both radiant and convection means into the polymer solution and causes evaporation of the solvent.

As infrared thermal energy is emitted from lamps above the polymer-substrate, the solvent absorbs the IR radiation triggering vibrations of its molecules and a subsequent transfer of mass and heat.

Flowing air introduced through the chamber walls exits through the exhaust stack carrying away the water vapor and solvent vapor.

D-Series IR Dryers precisely control temperatures to 200C and higher along with control of process gas flow to assure removal of moisure and released solvents.
