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.
