      Zephyrtronics Milestones    
The "early days" of the company as David Jacks & Randy Walston leave their safety nets with Fortune 500
Corporations to address emerging chip technologies, and began to lay ground work, engineer, R&D, test &
evaluate & apply for patents on their new, milestone low temp approach to benchtop soldering & rework. These
earliest concepts, designs and products later would become industry standards within the global electronic
 industry, forever changing how printed circuit boards were made in initial prototyping and design and in
 rework and repair, as well. The AirBath™, The AirPencil™, The AirPick™, Touch-Free BGA Rework and so much more.
David  and Randy Officially Introduce the World’s First Stand-Alone, Bottom-Side Convection Preheating System, The
Patented AirBath, to the Global Electronics Industry to immediate acclaim and industry praise. 

Zephyrtronics was awarded the prestigious "Vision Award" for Best New Product of the Year at the Surface
Mount International Exposition in Silicon Valley. Motorola certifies the Zephyrtronics equipment and
methodology after extensive laboratory testing and evaluation. Large Aerospace corporation orders 100
of Zephyrtronics AirBaths for its high end production facilities. ZeroTouch™, Low Temp PCB soldering & desoldering had arrived.
The editorial staff of SMT Magazine spotlighted Zephyrtronics as one of the three most innovative companies of
the year. Hundreds of Zephyrtronics AirBaths selected utilized for for building the International Space Station.
Zephyrtronics was selected as supplier of choice by the U.S. Department of Defense. Zephyrtronics aggressively
litigates against a competitor for patent infringement and is successful. Competitor settles out of court. 
Meanwhile, the Patented AirBaths Are Tapped For U.S. Air Craft Carriers, Including the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk and
 used in missile production. Zephyrtronics introduces the ZT-7 Comprehensive BGA, SMD Benchtop System. Sony
Places First Order After Only Seeing Prototype at Trade Event.

National Semiconductor recommends the Zephyrtronics Patented ZT-7-MIL for Reworking of BGA's, CSP's,
QFN's & All SMD's. Zephyrtronics defends copyright infringement by competitor who settles out of court for
unauthorized commercial use of our technical writings. The Company doubles it's manufacturing and corporate
office space to accommodate its rapid growth.
Zephyrtronics continues string of three years as the fastest growing manufacturer of benchtop soldering
equipment in the U.S.A. Thank you for growing with us. Zephyrtronics introduces ZT-5100 AirMill™ Automatic
Dispensing Systems and Accessories Product Line.
In Six Sigma Study, a leading aerospace company acknowledges change to Zephyrtronics would prevent $1
Million per year in rework scrap compared To competitor's products.
The Zephyrtronics ZT-7-MIL is selected by The J.P.L. Mars Rover Project for Ball Grid Array Processing.
Zephyrtronics Introduces Wide Array of Dispensing Products and Supplies to Industry Acclaim. International
Rectifier Recommends the Zephyrtronics ZT-7 for Reflow of BGA's at the Benchtop.
After smashing success of the Mars Rover program, NASA issues 39-page report to NASA / JPL employees touting
Zephyrtronics for making "mounting/removal of thru-hole and SMT/BGA easier than routine benchtop
methods". NASA engineers visit Zephyrtronics, who later happily lends our facility and equipment to JPL
engineers collaborative effort for Mars Program.
Zephyrtronics Expands its Leadership in Preheating Introducing the Powerful MegaGrid™ AirBath. Additionally
Zephyrtronics extends its offering of dispensing products.
Zephyrtronics Introduces it ZeroLead® Branded Lead-Free Solder Paste and ZeroLead® LowMelt® DeSolder to
the world market.  Both products are RoHS Compliant.

Zephyrtronics launches E-Commerce site to service our world-wide customers.

Zephyrtronics expands Its International Distribution with new partners & agents in Europe, Asia, Africa, 
South America, Australia and the Middle East.

Zephyrtronics again successfully defends a patent against infringement by an unimaginative & cheesy
competitor, who later files for bankruptcy in 2010. And the patented Zephyrtronics ZT-7 continues as the #1 BGA
& SMD Hot Air Station in the World, and first choice for repair of video gaming consoles. 
Zephyrtronics declines two acquisition offers to purchase company.

In the midst of a global recession, Zephyrtronics increases, yet again, its manufacturing operations, capacity
and expands its factory space by over 50% in Los Angeles, thereby keeping its "Made in the USA" commitment for
all Zephyrtronics equipment. 
Zephyrtronics introduces its new highly active pre-fluxed solder wick
and a fluxless solder wick for PCB de-soldering tasks.
Company Expands Its Multi-Function & Popular ABC PCB Cradle Line. 
More and more PCB Repair Centers for Video Game Consoles, Flat Screen Televisions, Smart Phones, PC's and Tablets
After Buying Ineffective "Rework Machines" that warped and damaged their customers' boards.
Our Patented ZT-6 AirFountain° Approved for Space Application & Approved By NASA for
Connector Soldering Because of Superiority Solder Joints Over Press Fit Connectors With Serious Intermittent Issues!
Zephyrtronics, Yet Again, Successfully Legally
Swats the Hell Out of a Violator of One of Its Many Established Trademarks
