BTU International, Inc. received a 2021 CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY NPI Award in the category of Soldering – Alternative for its Health Check Service. The award was announced during a special online awards ceremony on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.
“The tremendous success of our Health Check program speaks to the customer’s need to keep production running and avoid unscheduled downtime,” said Bruce Quigley, director of customer service and Billerica operations. “We are proud to receive yet another recognition for what we believe is the best customer service in the industry.”
BTU furnaces and reflow ovens are known worldwide for their quality construction, productivity and long usable life. BTU is offering a new Health Check service, which is essentially a “well visit” for BTU reflow ovens and custom furnaces. During a Health Check, BTU system experts will perform mechanical checks and inspections, test electrical subsystems – including all heater circuits – perform calibrations, and verify all safety interlocks. Performing all of these actions in one shift has considerable advantages.
The Health Check Service helps to avoid unscheduled downtime, improve system performance and safety, and streamline future repairs and maintenance processes. A properly calibrated and maintained oven is more likely to operate in the middle of the thermal process window thereby allowing greater belt speeds and production throughputs.
Introduced in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
