PACE to Launch Low-Cost Soldering Station at IPC APEX EXPO 2018


Reading time ( words)

PACE Worldwide announces the ADS200, a new high-power, low-cost production soldering station, to be introduced at IPC APEX EXPO 2018, which will be held on February 27-March 1, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center. The ADS200 features the new TD-200 Cool-Touch Handpiece, with its sleek and ergonomic aluminum handle designed to stay cool and comfortable during continuous production soldering. Its Blue Series Tip-Heater Cartridges integrate a high-accuracy sensor with a robust heater, delivering up to 120W of power. The quick-change cartridges can be quickly swapped while hot, and achieve set temperatures instantly. Yet, the tip cartridges are less than half the price of most other cartridge style or curie point tips.

PACE's new AccuDrive temperature control technology delivers unsurpassed thermal performance and highly accurate temperatures, without the need to change tip cartridges or calibrate. Its advanced electronics provide instantaneous load sensing and on-demand power to quickly reflow solder joints at the lowest, safest temperature required, regardless of the mass of the application. Intended for extreme, multi-shift production use, the ADS200 features a rugged, all-metal design, including housing, soldering iron and tool stand. The system is intuitive and easy to operate – just power it on, set the temperature with arrow keys and start soldering.

PCB Pad Repair Techniques

01/08/2018 | Bob Wettermann, BEST Inc.
There are a variety of reasons behind pads getting "lifted" completely or partially from the laminate of a PCB. Per the just revised IPC-A-610 Revision G, a defect for all three classes occurs when the land is lifted up one or more pad thicknesses. Lifted pads can occur when a device has been improperly removed or there is a manufacturing defect in the board construction. In any case, as with any repair, the ultimate decision on the ability to repair the pad lies with the customer.

The Effect of Area Shape and Area Ratio on Solder Paste Printing Performance

12/28/2017 | Stefan Härter, et al.
The ongoing miniaturization trend in the SMT production induces new challenges and highly integrated systems. In passive components, the miniaturization leads to the introduction of the EIA size 01005 or smaller. Despite numerous publications in this field already addressing the printing of such devices, a defined wholly optimized process remains unsolved and inspires further novel research ideas on this topic.
