IBL was founded in 1987 and specialise in vapour phase reflow technology. In their thirtieth year, we took a close look at their range of reflow ovens including batch vapour phase, inline oven as well as ovens utilising vacuum technology. We also caught up with Olaf Cieply at SMT Connect and asked him to provide a quick overview on IBL and their excellent ovens.
With more than fifty patents, it is no surprise that IBL’s vapour phase product range is of such good quality. Everything has been designed to maximise cycle time and quality of the boards.
Olaf talks about some of the technology in the video and shares some of the most notable advances in their products.
Below is a range of IBL’s vapour phase solutions, designed for every need including batch, inline and vacuum machines.
The Minilab is a batch machine and therefore the assemblies are loaded and unloaded by hand. However, the solder cycle is done fully automatically by the machine itself.
The BLC 420 can be utilised as a batch or as an inline solution. It consists of two chambers so it provides more capability that a desktop system while still benefitting from a small footprint.
IThe BLC inline Vapour Phase is a powerful system for more demanding processing. It includes an easy one step profile set-up with an Intelligent profiling system (IPS), as well as benefitting from patented Soft Vapor Temperature Control (SVTC).
This fully automated solution from IBL provides high quality and precision with every board processed.
The VAC745/765 provides maximum solder quality and is quoted as ‘void-free soldering’. This is ideal for critical applications that require zero voiding such as medical devices or boards used in space and defence.
