This presentation is a sequel to the preliminary data Fred provided to the chapter in early 2019 and will include an overview of the vacuum reflow process and an explanation of why vacuum reflow is of interest to the electronic assembly industry. The presentation will discuss finalized data from the vacuum reflow void reduction experiment completed at the Universal Instruments Process Laboratory andresults from live demonstrations at ACI Technology. The live demonstrations will include reworked boards that had been previously processed without vacuum reflow and Fred will describe the refinements that have been made to subsequent vacuum furnaces.

Fred Dimock, Manager of Process Technology at BTU International,has extensive experience in thermal processing and has assisted many companies with process refinements over the years. Fred has authored numerous articles on lead free solder, process control, and the operation of continuous furnaces.
