Nordson SELECT, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN), is pleased to announce it was awarded a 2019 Mexico Technology Award in the category of selective soldering equipment for the Nordson SELECT Integra® 508.3 selective soldering system. The award was presented to the company during a Wednesday, October 23, 2019 ceremony that took place during the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum in Guadalajara, Mexico.
The Integra® 508.3 is a multi-station selective soldering system designed for high-volume applications with maximum throughput. With its highly flexible configuration, the Integra® 508.3 allows soldering of printed circuit boards as large as 508 x 508 mm (20.0 x 20.0 in.).
Customers can choose between three different variants of the Integra® 508.3 to meet a broad range of selective soldering requirements. The Integra® 508.3S configuration equipped with single fluxer and solder pot provides single board processing.
The Integra® 508.3PD configuration with dual drop-jet fluxers and dual solder pots allows for using two solder nozzles in the same soldering station or processing two boards in a panel simultaneously. The Integra® 508.3PD is capable of processing up to 6 boards at one time. Parallel processing enables fluxing and soldering of two printed circuit boards at the same time doubling machine productivity.
The Integra® 508.3PD 2seg configuration is equipped with dual fluxers and solder pots allowing it to solder two singulated boards in-line in a parallel mode with two segmented conveyors. This allows sequential soldering of two printed circuit boards at the same time without the need for the boards to be in a panel, to be palletized or to require tooling. All variants of the Integra® 508.3 are available with Nordson SELECT’s unique automatic solder nozzle cleaning system, which unlike other nozzle cleaning systems, does not spray a liquid or powdered flux, or adipic acid.
The Mexico Technology Awards acknowledge the latest innovations available in Mexico produced by OEM equipment manufacturers and material suppliers during the past twelve months.
