Naprotek Purchases a Nordson SELECT Selective Soldering System


Reading time ( words)

Naprotek, Inc. has purchased the Nordson SELECT Cerno 103IL selective soldering system. The robust system provides the company with an exceptional combination of versatility and productivity.

“Naprotek is adding selective solder capability to increase our flexibility and speed to better support our customers’ needs,” stated Larry Morrissey, vice president of Operations. “Selective solder allows much faster soldering of through-hole components without the added requirement for wave solder fixtures and additional setup time.”

The Cerno 103IL has many unique features, including high-speed Z-axis motion for faster processing time and reduced soldering cycle. With its flexible configuration, the Cerno 103IL is a versatile selective soldering system capable of processing tin-lead, lead-free or HMP solder alloys.

Morrissey added, “Fast programming and execution with the Cerno 103IL saves time in the process. This allows us to meet critical deadlines. Selective solder also prevents exposing the board to the additional heat cycle experienced during wave solder. Having the ability to individually solder a single component or a small subset of components on the board is a definite productivity improvement.”

With its feature rich, graphics-based programming and machine control software, the Cerno 103IL is specially designed for demanding selective soldering applications. Setup and time to first article is significantly reduced to within 10-15 minutes. The SWAK-OS 4.0 software features seamless fiducial recognition, live teach cameras, real-time data collection, SQL back-end data extraction and complete FIS capability for shop floor integration.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 1)

07/16/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.

Surface Treatment Enabling Low-Temperature Soldering to Aluminum

07/15/2019 | Divyakant Kadiwala, Averatek Corporation
An increasingly popular method to meet the need for lower cost circuitry is the use of aluminum on polyester (Al-PET) substrates. This material is gaining popularity and has found wide use in RFID tags, low-cost LED lighting, and other single-layer circuits. However, both aluminum and PET have their own constraints and require special processing to make finished circuits.

Failures and Reliability in Soldering

07/09/2019 | Michael Gouldsmith and Zen Lee, Thermaltronics
The definition of failure is "the lack of success in doing or achieving something, especially in relation to a particular activity." If the activity is concerning a soldering process, such a failure can have a downstream impact far beyond the actual solder joint. In this regard, it is first necessary to understand what constitutes a good solder joint because appearance is too often deemed a success.
