Centurion Reflow

Cathox Flux Filtration System

 
  • Patented Technology of flux decomposition, the revolution of the industry
  • Modular design for various solder paste usage
  • Significantly extended maintenance cycle and shortened maintenance time compared to traditional way of flux condensation
  • Avoid requirement of external devices like chillers
  • Low cost of ownership

Industry-leading Thermal Performance

 

With Centurion’s new design backed by our experiences with its prior generations, we achieved better thermal transfer even with wider process chamber. Our knowledge and experience in process control ensure repeatability across the ovens required by the most demanding customers and the most challenging process requirements in the world.

Cost of Ownership

 

With an efficient heat transfer design, Centurion provides low energy consumption. Its reliable and robust design, backed by over 20 years of SMT experience and capability, ensures high uptime even with the toughest reflow requirements. Our patented CATHOX™ further reduces cost of ownership by reducing the maintenance needs through cutting-edge technology of flux treatment. The new ‘idle mode’ option will further reduce cost of operation.

Fast Cool Down

 

Fast changeover time is a key factor for high-mix low volume manufacturers. Fast Cool Down (FCD) is a key option when there are multiple recipe changes in a day, especially when changing profiles from high to low temperature. Through computer program, FCD automatically controls individual zones to reach its specific temperature setpoint.

New Air Flow System

 

The new air flow system is designed to extract flux contaminated air out of the chamber of an air environment reflow oven. The system isolates the heating and cooling section of the tunnel with an additional venturi. It reduces refresh time and maintenance time, providing a much cleaner environment.

True N2/Air Switch

 

The True N2/Air switch on a nitrogen machine allows the user to easily switch between air flow system and nitrogen flow system for different productions. In Nitrogen production, nitrogen is recirculated to save the operating cost, and in Air production, the new air flow system proactively extracts air out of the chamber to the exhaust box.

This option provides the customer with the combination of a true N2 machine and a true Air machine.

Maintenance and Accessibility

 

The patented CATHOX™ (Catalytic Thermal Oxidizer) dramatically reduces maintenance requirements while keeping a clean process environment. It is very effective in removing volatile compounds from the process tunnel during reflow. In thermal oxidation, organic vapors are converted to hydrocarbons, which are captured by a filter. Centurion’s design also ensures that when maintenance is required, you have easy access and can do the maintenance job with few tools required. 

Traceability

 
  • Management Information Systems provides log files with all set and actual values

ZEVAm+ Selective

Closed-loop Flux Flow Control

Integrated mass flow meter has capability to measure during the whole flux cycle directly in the supply circuit to the nozzle.

Closed-loop Preheater Management

Active and precise control of PCB temperature. with automatic adjustment of lamp power to reach desired temperature at the end of the preheat cycle. Improved process control and board to board repeatability with no additional cycle time.

High Frequent Fluxing Technology

High frequency, high-speed, drop jet fluxing meets every cycle time and drop size requirement and increases the process window up to 5 times. Clogging is reduced with larger hole dimension of 180µm.

Management Information System & Barcode Integration

 
  • Barcode integration allows automatically selection of correct program
  • Management Information System saves all set and actual values of a specific soldered product into a log file
  • Linking barcode and management information provides full traceability
  • Connectivity to host computer and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES)

Precision Wave Height Control

Designed to control the wave height of the Selectwave through a camera. Measures without contact and no additional cycle time. Improves process control and board-to-board repeatability.

Selectwave Solderpot

ZEVA features point-to-point or drag soldering with a rotating nozzle to reduce cycle time. The solderpot is covered to minimize nitrogen consumption and dross formation. On the ZEVAm a movable electromagnetic solderpot allows soldering under an angle.

The patented Solder Drainage Conditioner (SDC) unit is designed to ensure stable wave dynamics and bridge-free soldering.

SmartTeach Programming

  • Standard offline programming software
  • Program without using machine capacity
  • Automatic snap function aligning program over through-hole
  • Automatic calibration, process proposal, and flux volume calculation
  • Uses .DXF, Gerber or pixel based input
