Vacuum Soldering Systems that Increase Your Yield


If you are attending iMAPS in Boston this October, you will want to check out budatec’s line of vacuum soldering systems at the show!  Budatec GmbH has decades of experience and is a top machinery manufacturer for the solar and semiconductor industries.  They specialize in vacuum soldering and solder-free sintering systems with hard and soft tools.  Based in Berlin, they are a technology leader serving the semiconductor, photovoltaic, automotive and medical industries worldwide.

Vacuum Soldering Technology

When flawless soldering is required, vacuum soldering provides the best solution. This special form of convection soldering:

  • Improves the final quality of the solder joint
  • Results in application improvements over standard reflow soldering

Three-dimensional imperfections (voids, pores) can form wherever flux and solvents escape from the soldered joint and cannot completely leave. The vacuum process reduces or eliminates defects by allowing these residues to fully escape in the preheating and liquidus phase.

Budatec’s Full Line of Vacuum Soldering Systems

Increase your yield in production with budatec’s latest generation vacuum soldering systems. They offer increased flexibility, expandability and ease of integration.  The VS Family includes a full range of systems to meet your needs from small, medium and large batch machines to fully automated production systems.

VS 160 S & VS 160 UG
    • Heating plate size: 160 mm x 160 mm
    • Offers highest performance with a small footprint due to its high heating and cooling rates in the range of 200 K/min
    • Uses:
      • Research & Development
      • The production of smaller batches under production conditions
    • Variations:
      • Available as a VS 160 S (benchtop) and as a VS 160 UG (with a base frame). This makes it possible to integrate additional options such as a vacuum pump or HCOOH gas line.
VS 320
    • Heating plate size: 320 mm x 320 mm
    • Offers high achievable performance
    • Uses:
      • Research & Development
      • Production of medium and large batches
    • Variations:
      • Options such as hydrogen (concentration adjustable up to 100 %), HCOOH, special gases, microwave plasma and the integration of our sintering press.
VS 320 i
    • Heating plate size: 320 mm x 320 mm
    • Offers autonomous loading and unloading of product carriers. Based on the VS 320 with all available options.
    • Fully automatic inline vacuum brazing system that is flexible and simple to expand. Several technology steps can be integrated inline quickly and easily.
    • Heating plate size: 1000 mm x 320 mm
    • Uses: Processing large parts and large batches
    • Variations: In addition to the available options hydrogen (concentration adjustable up to 100 %), HCOOH and special gases as well as motor-driven manipulators can be integrated within the workspace.
