Reading time ( words)

Pillarhouse USA Inc. will be exhibiting at the IPC APEX EXPO 2017, which will be held from February 14–16, 2017, at the San Diego Convention Center in California. As is custom, Pillarhouse will be demonstrating new equipment and innovations in selective soldering technology.

New for 2017 is the Jade MK IV. The Jade platform is the world's most successful hand load selective soldering system, and the MK IV adds new process features to this industry leading platform. These new features include increased board handing size; enhanced PillarCOMM interface; auto-nozzle tinning system and bottom-side instant IR heater.

With Industry 4.0 and Smart Factory being industry buzzwords at the moment, Pillarhouse will be demonstrating a running production line with a Smart Factory implementation. This line will consist of Pillarhouse 3-cell Fusion and Synchrodex Selective Soldering Systems, along with Simplimatic Automation's Board Load and Unloaders. This line will be running an implementation of Smart Factory 1.0 (Industry 4.0), with a real-time feedback of production line status. Pillarhouse is pleased to be working with the IPC in helping create the draft IPC standard 2-17 (Data Connected Factory), which will produce a common framework for a Smart Factory implementation in the electronics assembly industry.

Pillarhouse will also be demonstrating the Pilot, its entry-level, desktop selective soldering system. The Pilot is perfect for small to medium batch hand-load operations wanting a high specification value option. This system is also ideal for SME producers where floor space is at a premium and flexibility and energy saving are key considerations. The Pilot is designed to process boards up to 330mm x 250mm.

Pillarhouse will be on Stand 1323.

"The biggest challenge I’ve encountered a number of different times is the migration to much larger packaging," said Dr. Martin Anselm, director of CEMA Lab. "Devices are getting much larger, and with the thousands of I/O of solder joints, and they are not just single-die, multi-chip modules in different forms or 2.5D technologies.
