Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, announces that it received a 2016 SMT China Vision Award in the category of Software – Process Control for the new Recipe Pro. The award was presented to the company on April 26, 2016 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center during NEPCON China.
The new Recipe Pro recipe generator software was jointly developed with Electronic Controls Design Inc. (ECD). The SMT China Vision Award marks BTU’s 25th industry award in the last nine years.
“The PYRAMAX™ reflow oven platform is constantly being improved to increase its yield and productivity,” said Peter Tallian, General Manager of BTU International. “This innovative tool, developed with ECD, attacks the downtime associated with process development; furthering our ultimate goal of the absolute minimization of cost of ownership.”
Integrating ECD’s recipe generator technology into BTU’s advanced reflow systems offers manufacturers a streamlined and effective approach to initial recipe generation for higher yield results. The profiler will reduce non-productive time by streamlining the set-up process. Recipe Pro is the only recipe generation tool in the industry to include convection rate in the recipe generator algorithm, pairing it perfectly with PYRAMAX™’s closed-loop convection control.
SMT China magazine launched the SMT China Vision Awards in 2007 to recognize both international and domestic providers of SMT equipment, materials, software and services that have made outstanding contributions to the rapid growth of China's electronics manufacturing industry by their inventions and innovations.

November’s issue of Design007 Magazine had an excellent theme that evolved around design simplification. There were exceptionally good articles about how to reduce over-constrained or needlessly complex designs. One significant time-consuming category is the creation of many design files and drawings which lead to lengthy creation and interpretation time along with the considerable time to resolve conflicting or erroneous information.
