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.
