BTU’s New Profile Tracer Wins 2023 EM Innovation AwardApril 14, 2023 | BTU International, Inc.
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing market, received a 2023 EM Innovation Award in the category of Software – Process Control for its new Profile Tracer. The award was announced at a ceremony that took place April 14, 2023 during productronica China in Shanghai.
Profile Tracer is a next-generation thermal profiling tool providing real-time data acquisition for oven optimization by identifying inconsistencies due to temperature variables at both the product level and at the heat source. This exclusive tool by BTU measures dual temperature locations including real-time product temperature as well as vibration all while the product completes its thermal path.
Profile Tracer supports Industry 4.0 capabilities by acquiring data sets, enabling data communication, and increasing database analysis using In-One-Pass (I-O-P) technology. Profile Tracer software is part of the Wincon™ ecosystem of powerful diagnostic and analytical tools supporting overall process optimization.
Profile Tracer’s predictive capabilities go beyond traditional profilers by using internal sensors and top-of-the-line heat resistant optic windows to measure the thermal profile at the same time, vibration on the path, and temperature on the product as well as at the heat source.
Established in 2006, the EM Innovation Awards program strives to recognize and celebrate excellence in the Asian electronics industry, inspiring companies to achieve the highest standards and push the industry forward.
