THese you can have single or dual head, long for a lot of feeder positions, with bigger or smaller work area based on your needs. Feeders concept is very clever and setups are quick. A lot can be done on the fly on the machine, compared to other bran

FYI, in my experience, programming and fine tuning select solder is usually quick and painless.

If your ovens are 480V you may be able to convert them back to 240V by changing out the elements? There are industrial suppliers for oven elements out there. sarason

So do you guys really not like running oven's this large at 240V? Or do you just not like the two ovens specifically that I mentioned?

Oh no, it's rated at a max of 120A at 208V. We have the power for that. At least the Vitronics is, not sure on the Heller.

In my experience Heller makes a great, no frills oven that just runs. The only Vitronics oven I've dealt with was over-engineered and gave me nothing but headaches.

What we did not talk about is Mycronic machine. Great choice for small batches.

We have 3 Heller 1800 units. They run great. Our building is 208 3ph. One of ours is running 480v, so we bought a transformer to convert. I am not familiar with the other oven you mentioned.

It looks like one oven is 10years newer than the other, so if we assume same maintenance routine you should get another 10 years if life on it. On the TH side, you know your board complexity - for me wave have much more value than a Selective. Selec
