Kimchuk Installs ACE Selective Soldering System in Connecticut Facility


Reading time ( words)

ACE Production Technologies Inc., a leading supplier of selective soldering systems and lead tinning systems, is pleased to announce that Kimchuk Incorporated has invested in a KISS-103 selective soldering machine.

The KISS-103 selective soldering system has been installed at Kimchuk's facility located in Danbury, Connecticut and is the first selective soldering machine that the company has ordered from ACE Production Technologies.

"The KISS-103 is a fully-configured selective soldering platform equipped with 'Super Quick' processing speeds, heated nitrogen inerting system and automated wave height detection system," said Kevin Valentine, Sales and Service Manager-Americas, of ACE Production Technologies. "The KISS-103 comes standard with the ACE automated fiducial location and correction system providing single click fiducial teach capability, seamless fiducial recognition and true automated alignment and skew correction of the printed circuit board. In addition, this machine is equipped with a dual solder nozzle pump assembly that allows two different sized solder nozzles to operate independently for greater flexibility and processing efficiency."

Valentine added, "Other innovative features include the new SWAK-OS machine operating software which is a revolutionary graphics-based programming and editing machine control system that features fast program loading and program recall with minimal operator intervention. A major benefit of the SWAK-OS is the integrated board scanning function that automatically captures and saves an image of a printed circuit board to the selective soldering program."

For more than 50 years, Kimchuk Incorporated has been a valuable resource to the electronic manufacturing community by offering a complete array of services. Their services include printed circuit board assembly, mechanical assembly, cable and harness assembly as well as engineering design. Kimchuk serves a wide range of customers throughout the military, medical, safety and security, energy and telecommunications industries.

Initiatives like the IPC Connected Factory Exchange (CFX) and IPC-Hermes-9852 underpin efforts within the industry to develop standards and help create a smart factory. These M2M communication standards, guided in part by Industry 4.0, are altering the manufacturing process by improving metrics such as first pass yield and throughput by applying autonomous process adjustments.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.
