BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the alternative energy and electronics manufacturing markets, will exhibit at the upcoming Society for Information Display (SID), in Boston.
"With rapidly growing demand for touch displays, manufacturers need to scale-up and are looking to in-line manufacturing as an enabling technology," said Jan-Paul van Maaren, Ph.D., vice president of marketing alternative energy at BTU International. "BTU's in-line furnaces are leaders in thermal performance and reliability, which results in higher yield and lower cost for display manufacturers."
BTU Fast Fire furnaces provide reduced power usage by allowing for rapid start-up and cool-down between use. These systems, with a wide array of options, provide excellent atmosphere flow for binder removal in dielectric and metallization firing, along with precision temperature control. In addition to the standard air atmosphere configuration, Fast Fire is also available for nitrogen processing, maintaining purity as low as 2 ppm oxygen. With a history of well over 1,000 units shipped, the Fast Fire is the tool of choice for those customers to whom yield and reliability are paramount.
