The presentation entitled, “Vacuum Reflow Thermal Profile Challenges” will take place Tuesday, May 17, 2022 at the Laurel Manor Banquet & Conference Center in Livonia, MI. 

Inline vacuum reflow solutions inherently increase the potential for thermal profile compromise. Expectations need to be set when considering vacuum reflow solutions, whereby, the thermal profile approach may need to be adapted. This presentation explores the thermal profile challenges and discusses strategies to towards achieving the thermal profile.
