Scenes from #manufacturing at Adafruit: New reflow oven!

New reflow oven setup! The picked and placed boards enter the oven on a conveyor belt.

Inside the oven, the boards move through three different temperature chambers in order to bake to perfection.

A finished board leaves the reflow oven.

This is a BIG upgrade from our homemade Reflowduino.
