Thermaltronics Launches New Solder Robot to Simplify Soldering Applications


Reading time ( words)

Thermaltronics USA, Inc. announces that it has added a new product to its solder robot range: the TMT-R8000S. The system simplifies and automates hand soldering processes with precision ballscrews, servo motors and industry-leading software.

A Thermaltronics spokesperson stated that the automation in the electronics industry is accelerating at a rapid pace and as such the new TMT-R8000S solder robot will enable companies to meet the requirements of Industry 4.0, with accuracy, repeatability and traceability, at an affordable price.

The single-head soldering robot, TMT-R8000S Solder Robot System, is designed for simplified soldering applications but still includes vision/mapping, fiducial marks and dynamic laser height control and incorporates the same IP software used on the company’s successful benchtop system. It also includes a separate drive motor, which allows for adjustment solder wire feeder, a feature under patent application.

Thermaltronics believes this system provides companies with the best option when seeking to automate their hand soldering processes. A spokesperson for Thermaltronics stated that using precision components and industry-leading software maximizes yield rates.

We are launching into something that we ultimately don't know how it will turn out. We don't know the difficulties we'll face or problems we’ll need to fix. While we can control the design process and use our skills to make reasonable decisions, there are often huge hazards awaiting us in the "unknown." One worsening problem for all designers is component procurement.
