Libra Industries Upgrades Speed on its ACE Selective Solder System


Reading time ( words)

Libra Industries is pleased to announce that it has upgraded the software on its ACE K.I.S.S. 102 selective solder machine. With the new software and drive system, Libra Industries' ACE K.I.S.S. 102 runs up to 30 percent faster and the programming time has been reduced by at least 50 percent. Additionally, the new software has a better user interface along with dual screens to watch the product run and detect issues early on.

The K.I.S.S 102 is an automated, simple to use low cost selective soldering machine using the proven "traveling mini–solder wave," featuring the "Super fast" robotic motion to maximize production. It is used to flux and solder through-hole components on SMT boards within close proximity of adjacent components. This process overcomes the limitations of operator dependent soldering with a truly flexible automated flux application and molten solder delivery system.

The K.I.S.S 102 couples high throughput with precise process controls. The programmable features provide the tools to set all process parameters, including immersion depths, preheat dwells, travel distances and speeds, solder temperature, and wave height. Once set, the system will repeat precisely.

Libra Industries continues to invest to provide customized manufacturing solutions to help make its customers more competitive and improve their profitability. For more information, visit www.libraind.com.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
