Essemtec to premier new curing oven for small batches at Productronica 2009
Essemtec will introduce a new RO300FC-S full convection oven for drying and curing processes at the upcoming Productronica exhibition in Munich, Germany. The oven features a compact design, excellent process control and very small delta-T values that make the machine the first choice for small batch manufacturing or process development.
The new RO300FC-S from Essemtec has been developed for drying and curing applications with very high-quality requirements in electronics, medical industries, hybrid production, MID-technology and solar cell manufacturing. It features a compact design and a footprint of only 2.00 x 0.71 m, making the machine ideal for small batch and prototype production or laboratory applications.

RO300FC-S offers excellent process conditions for the manufacturing of high-quality products. The heating technology is 100 percent pure hot air convection ― any infrared radiation is shielded from the substrates. Due to highly sophisticated air guidance inside the process tunnel, heat distribution is exceptionally homogeneous: Delta-T values are below 4°C all over the oven width. In transport direction, three heating and one cooling zone ensure a proper temperature profile. The exact zone regulation enables profiles of a rectangular shape.

The process width measures 300 mm, and the transport width measures 400 mm. The conveying speed is programmable. Depending on the installed drive configuration, the range spans from 2 to 180, 10 to 300 or 100 to 800 mm/min. The transport system is optimized for handling sensitive substrates and devices. Chain or mesh belt conveyors are available. A SMEMA interface simplifies the integration into production lines.

Programming the oven is simple and straightforward. The integrated microprocessor control offers a user interface in three languages (German, French, English). The oven also can be programmed and controlled by external software, RO-CONTROL. This software offers additional features such as measurement, recording and documentation of actual temperatures inside the oven. Furthermore, it enables profile simulation which is a useful function in process development.

The RO300FC provides similar process conditions as larger ovens but in smaller dimensions. The oven can even be operated with nitrogen if a process requires an oxygen-free atmosphere. Due to its flexibility, compactness and excellent process control, the RO300FC-S is well-suited for drying and curing applications in laboratories, the production of prototypes and small series.
