A particular success story so far this year has been our sales of IBL vapour phase reflow soldering systems. We have been representing IBL for two and a half years now, and sales have steadily been on the increase during all of that time. Companies such as MPE Electronics, Union Four, Skyships Automotive, Glenair, MBDA and Northern Hi-Tech have all invested in our vapour phase in the first half of 2012.
Vapour phase provides a safe alternative to heat tunnel reflow, and is particularly well suited to low volume, high tech applications. It is impossible to overheat or damage boards in a vapour phase machine, so it provides a secure soldering method for high value assemblies such as those used in Military, Aerospace, or Space applications. The excellent heat transfer capability of vapour phase together with low power consumption make it a gentle, reliable and repeatable soldering process.
