NASHVILLE — July 2022 — KYZEN, the global leader in innovative environmentally friendly cleaning chemistries, will exhibit at the SMTA Ohio Valley Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Wednesday, August 24, 2022 at the Best Western Plus Strongsville. The KYZEN team will showcase the first and only concentration monitoring and control system in the world, the KYZEN Process Control System (PCS), and the newest addition to the award-winning AQUANOX product line: AQUANOX A4626.

The environmentally friendly AQUANOX A4626 removes all of the latest as well as traditional flux residues. It has a long tank life and is safe for multi-pass applications.

The next-generation cleaning chemistry is designed to quickly remove the latest polymeric no-clean flux residues, while providing superior results on traditional lead-free and eutectic tin-lead residues as well.

For world-class process control, the KYZEN PCS monitors and automatically reacts to the dynamic changes in the wash bath concentration. More than 20 years ago, KYZEN PCS was designed to maximize high-quality output from inline cleaning systems, and its capabilities have continuously improved and advanced.

Today, it remains the only complete concentration monitoring and control system available in the world. The latest KYZEN PCS features improved control algorithms and a new, 7” color touchscreen interface.

KYZEN products and cleaning experts have always been focused on the process so you can be sure the newest AQUANOX product will fit into your production line. Adding KYZEN's Process Control System or the KYZEN Analyst will complete the optimization and provide you with a worry-free process.

Bittele Electronics Inc., a Toronto-based PCB manufacturer specializing in prototype and small-to-mid volume printed circuit board assembly, announced the expansion of its Markham, Ontario, PCB assembly facility. Bittele has expanded its component warehouse to provide more storage space for consigned inventory since extended part lead times still plague the component market.

“With the expanded warehouse, we can store consigned parts for ongoing and upcoming orders,” says Ben Yang, CEO of Bittele Electronics. “We also offer the option of purchasing and stocking critical items from a customer’s BOM upon request.”

In addition to the expansion of its component warehouse, Bittele has also installed a new Soltec wave soldering machine, which will be utilized for larger-volume, through-hole assembly. The new wave soldering machine will complement its current Ersa selective soldering machine and will be operational later this summer.

Bittele’s Markham facility offers quick-turn prototype to mid-volume production focusing on its North American customers and features fully automated printed circuit board (PCB) loading, solder paste printing, component placement, reflow and inspection.

Since partnering with Heller Industries last year, Altus Group, a leading supplier of capital equipment for the electronics industry, has seen growing interest in the company’s reflow oven technology including its latest innovation, the MK7.

Altus has introduced Heller Industries equipment to a wide variety of customers as it supports all production requirements from entry level NPI volumes, to the fastest throughput needed in automotive environments.

As an innovator in convection reflow and in-line continuous curing applications, Heller Industries MK7 Reflow Oven is one of the world’s best SMT convection reflow oven for high-throughput applications.

Joe Booth, Altus said: “Heller Industries are leaders in their field, having pioneered convection reflow soldering since the 1980s. Because they have many years of in-depth knowledge and understanding of reflow oven technology, we were thrilled to add them to the Altus portfolio. The addition of the MK7 Reflow Oven has enabled us to introduce their technology to even more of our customers because of its game changing benefits and massive energy-based ROI.

“Mk7 is designed with lower Delta T for superior thermal uniformity. It also has reduced nitrogen consumption of up to 40% and a new low height package that makes it easy to see across the production floor. There is also a flux collection system included trapping flux in collection jars that are easily removed and replaced while the oven is still running, so there is no downtime for changes.

“Another important feature is the energy management software. Energy saving is a hot topic at the moment and one which we are often asked about when it comes to new equipment. The MK7 software allows users to optimise energy consumption during the various production times, whether during heavy use or even when idle. With optimal airflow, uniformity and double insulation on all its skins there is at least a 20% energy saving when compared to the MK5 which was already comparable to others in the field.

It is not just software that makes this unit so energy efficient. Heller has modified the design of the heating zones to remove overall mass and reduce the distance from the fans to the product. This means that the oven requires less energy to heat up and less ongoing energy consumption to remain hot. This means that the oven warm up is faster (25%) and the oven is more reactive when reflowing higher thermal mass products, which helps keep the internal zone temperatures as uniform as possible to their set temperatures and in doing so, increases profile accuracy.
