SEHO Systems GmbH plans to exhibit at NEPCON South China, scheduled to take place Aug. 28-30, 2018 at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center. The company will showcase the MaxiSelective-HS – the selective soldering system for maximum throughput requirements in Booth 1D10.
The MaxiSelective-HS is high quality soldering solution when short cycle times are required. Parallel processes in the fluxing, preheating and soldering area, simultaneous contact of all solder joints with product specific multi-nozzle soldering tools, and the parallel transfer of the assemblies to the next work station make this the ideal system for mass production.
Two basic machine versions of the MaxiSelective-HS can be equipped with four or six stations working in parallel both offer the flexibility needed to meet your individual production requirements. Additional buffer stations at the inlet and outlet of the machine complete this high-speed system. In order to meet complex production challenges or o respond to increasing manufacturing volumes, the MaxiSelective-HS can be expanded with additional modules or it may be combined with other machine types at a later date.
Of course, the MaxiSelective-HS provides outstanding features for automated process control. Flux quantity monitoring, gradient-controlled temperature profiles, solder level control with automatic wire supply and an automated wave height control are only some of the machine’s highlights.

Since training is such a key component in converting an inexperienced new hire into a valued contributor on the manufacturing floor, we asked Brenda Clunie, vice president of sales and operations at EPTAC, exactly how their certification programs deliver on this promise for new hires.

At the Atlanta SMTA Expo and Tech Forum, I met Neil Hubble, president of the metrology systems provider Akrometrix. If you’re not sure exactly what metrology entails, you’re in luck. In this interview, Neil explains why metrology is becoming a critical part of PCB manufacturing. We also discuss the company’s capital equipment, testing services, and why Akrometrix counts many of the top PCB and semiconductor manufacturing companies in the world as their customers.

During factory visits, I've witnessed what’s happened to our workforce after the pandemic. Sometimes it looks like operator separation for social distancing, working extra shifts to cover for lost or missing employees due to illness, workers who now work from home, or they have simply found working no longer suits them. One possible solution when you can’t hire skilled technicians is to look at automation, particularly automation for soldering. For many it was a “feature piece” for the obligatory factory tour just to demonstrate to potential customers they are forward thinking. Now it’s a reality to solve a true workforce shortage issue. But why use a robotic soldering system?
