The LA-series furnace is a versatile computer-controlled high temperature furnace for production and laboratory applications. Process atmosphere is controlled much like a clean room: pressurized gas is pushed through the heating chamber insulation providing a pre-heated, laminar flow for a uniform, stable atmosphere. Precise temperature is maintained by control thermocouples above the belt in each zone quickly sensing changing conditions. IR quartz heating lamps inside the chamber instantaneously adjust their output to achieve tight temperature control: each load through the furnace sees the same temperature.
Computer Controlled. The furnace is operated via TPS FurnaceControl software installed on a robust industrial rack mount furnace computer. The process engineer can easily vary process parameters using the sophisticated PID and power control parameters in the software. An almost infinite number of recipes and profiles can be labeled and stored for ready access on the furnace computer. The software includes 3 levels of password protected control (Engineer and Operator) and logs each change in recipe load or furnace state useful for troubleshooting product and process performance.
The furnace software operates in a Microsoft Windows environment. The program and all settings and recipes are stored on the rack mounted industrial computer hard drive. The computer is complete with a high resolution color graphic screen, full size keyboard/mouse and/or touchscreen interface. The furnace includes two (2) local USB ports at the computer below the control console for connecting profilers and jump drive storage devices.
Laboratory and Production Applications. LA-series furnaces can process substrates, wafers, PCBs, metal, ceramic, glass or polycarbonate parts for Package Sealing, Epoxy Die Attach, Polymer Curing, Reflow Soldering, Hybrid/Thick Film Firing, General Thermal Processing, Brazing, Annealing, Tempering, Metal Sintering as well as many other production and laboratory applications.
