Altus introduce latest Rehm innovation

Posted 17 March 2017 · Add Comment

Distributor of capital equipment for the electronics assembly industry, Altus Group, has updated its product portfolio with the latest innovation from Rehm, specialists in thermal system solutions, which was presented at the recent IPC Apex Expo in the USA.



Rehm unveiled their latest convection soldering machine with vacuum, the VisionXP+ Vac, to visitors of the Expo. The new vacuum unit allows void-free convection soldering in a single process. The system has had a number of new updates including environmental and energy efficiency developments.

Matt Jones, Altus Group Sales Director said: “The VisionXP+ with the new vacuum option is a welcome addition to our portfolio of products. The recent updates to the equipment has meant that customers can save up to 20% energy in electronics manufacturing, with the system consuming an average of 10 tonnes less CO2 per year. This is not only a benefit to the environment but also on the bottom-line, a win-win solution for those investing in convection soldering equipment.”

VisionXP+ Vac removes gas bubbles and voids during the pre-soldering process while the solder is still in an ideal molten state. With a vacuum of up to 2 mbar, void rates of less than 2% are possible.  The pressure and speed can also be individually managed giving the user optimum control.

Components can now pass directly from peak areas to the vacuum process, this not only reduces time during the production process, but a stable and high-quality end result is achieved.
