APC Installs ACE Selective Soldering System in Philippine Facility


Reading time ( words)

ACE Production Technologies Inc. has announced that APC has invested in a KISS-102 selective soldering system, which has been installed at APC's facility in Rosario, Cavite, Philippines. This is the first selective soldering machine that APC has ordered from ACE Production Technologies.

"The KISS-102 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-102 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, the KISS-102 can be 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."

APC (formerly known as American Power Conversion Corporation) is a subsidiary of Schneider Electric, and is a global manufacturer of uninterruptible power supplies, electrical peripherals, data center servers and products, data storage and software services. Schneider Electric is the parent company of Square D, Summit Energy, APC and numerous other subsidiary companies with over 114,000 employees and operations in 102 countries worldwide.

What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
