ITW Vitronics Soltec - Idle mode: saving energy and nitrogen

Partnertec news flash


Sustainability and green manufacturing are essential in today’s modern electronics industry. Over the years, Vitronics Soltec has improved its reflow ovens, with the latest Centurion models among the most efficient ovens on the market. However, reflow soldering remains a thermal process, consuming significant power during operation. Soltec now offers a convenient “Idle Mode” software option to reduce this consumption. An upstream sensor detects when no boards are entering the SMD line, and the oven reduces both fan speed and conveyor belt speed. In nitrogen ovens, the N2 insertion volume is also lowered. The board sensor location and delay timing can be freely set. Depending on production, power savings of up to 35% and N2 consumption reduction of up to 40% are easily achievable. As soon as SMEMA detects a new incoming PCB, the reflow oven rapidly awakens and restores the original settings without affecting the thermal profile on your PCBs.
