As a supplier of both Convection Ovens and Vapour Phase Ovens we are often asked if there is a conflict between technologies. The simple answer is no because convection oven customers are generally running higher throughput processes, whereas Vapour Phase customers tend to be running smaller batches of high valve, complex PCBs; Please see some of our user articles. Many of our customers have invested in IBL Vapour Phase to run alongside their Convection ovens.
