The 2020 Global Surface Mount Technology Soldering Equipment Award – Heller Industries
Frost & Sullivan states that “New Jersey-headquartered Heller Industries (Heller) delivers high-performance and unmatched customer value through its reflow soldering technology. The company pioneered convection reflow soldering in the 1980s, and since then, Heller has set the gold standard for SMT reflow ovens, continuing to refine its systems to satisfy advanced application requirements… The company embraces the changing nature of technology and adapts to ongoing transitions and the fluctuating needs that follow. To this end, one of Heller’s core philosophies is to ‘always say yes’ to a customer, which demonstrates its keen agility in addressing unmet needs. By leveraging this customer-centric mindset, as well as its industry-leading engineering department and comprehensive research and development(R&D)team, Heller’s portfolio of high-performance products continues to deliver a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Moreover, Heller also provides its customers with direct access to upper management, providing a direct lifeline to new and emerging challenges through customer feedback and input.
Heller’s SMT reflow oven series outperforms many of its competitors due to its high degree of repeatability and flexibility during configuration. The repeatability is a critical purchase criterion when dealing with ultra-high volume production of electronic devices. Smart SMT solutions are a significant customer need in the current production environments as semiconductor and electronic device manufacturers transition to Industry 4.0. Heller is the only company in the market that keenly focuses on developing smart SMT soldering equipment, offering product advantages such as increased connectivity and automation and minimal manual intervention.” The new MK7 reflow oven incorporates all customer requests for lower Delta T, reduced nitrogen consumption, and extended preventative maintenance (PM) into a new, low-height package that maintains strong visibility across the production floor.
