Energy and cost savings in electronics production

Easier than you think!

Electronics production without electricity – unthinkable! The largest consumers of electricity in SMT production are the reflow soldering systems. However, this soldering process is used in many electronics production facilities worldwide and is a very inefficient method of soldering in terms of energy. The extremely high power consumption of convection reflow systems is caused by the inefficient heat transfer via air.

Energy saving through vapor phase soldering!

Vapor phase soldering enables more than 20 times better heat transfer than air due to the liquid used! This means at the same time a saving of power consumption up to 70 % when using an ASSCON vapor phase soldering system. Find out more about the advantages of vapor phase soldering!
