SEHO to Present the Perfect Start into Automated Selective Soldering at SMTConnect


Reading time ( words)

SEHO Systems GmbH, a worldwide leading manufacturer of complete solutions for soldering processes and automated production lines, will exhibit in Hall 4, Stand 129 at SMTconnect, scheduled to take place May 7-9, 2019, at the NurnbergMesse GmbH in Nuremberg, Germany. The SEHO team will demonstrate the StartSelective, the perfect plug-and-produce selective soldering system, ideal for those just entering automated soldering. The machine is fully equipped to start production immediately: Simply connect, power on and produce.

The StartSelective is thought through down to the last detail, from its ease of operation that does not require special skills to many technical highlights. With a footprint of only 2.5 m², the StartSelective provides maximum quality and reproducibility of soldering results for assemblies up to 508 mm x 508 mm (20" x 20") and an outstanding return on investment. The compact design allows users to integrate the machine in any production island, or to place it as stan-alone system in the corner of the production floor.

While loading and unloading of assemblies is done manually, all process steps are fully automated and monitored. All process-relevant components such as the micro drop jet fluxer, preheat system and maintenance-free electromagnetic soldering unit have successfully been in use for years in other soldering systems from SEHO.

The bottom-side preheat section of the StartSelective is equipped with up-to-date pulsar heaters over the full area, which feature a high energy density and quick reaction time. An additional top-side IR preheating ensures permanent and controlled heat support during long cycles to guarantee constant process conditions.

Another highlight is the soldering area with electromagnetic soldering unit, featuring a 7° soldering angle. It is ideally suited for the use of non-wetted mini-wave nozzles with directed solder flow. The result: An ideal solder peel-off and effective reduction of possible soldering defects, even with difficult board layouts.

The solder nozzles convince with stable and reproducible flow properties, they are maintenance-free and feature a nearly unlimited lifetime, thus avoiding follow-up costs.

Just like the high-volume selective soldering systems from SEHO, the StartSelective is equipped with a complete package for automated process control. The spray jet control in the fluxing area, automatic wave height control and solder level monitoring with automated solder wire supply are only some of the monitoring functions.

The StartSelective is designed for maximum efficiency. Programming is 100 percent offline at any PC workplace so that the machine is always available for production. Simply connect, power on and produce!

For further information, the SEHO team is looking forward to welcoming visitors in hall 4, stand 129.

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.
