Reading time ( words)

East/West Manufacturing Enterprises (East/West), an electronics contract manufacturer announced that it has purchased the Nordson SELECT Cerno® 103IL selective soldering system. The robust system provides the company with an exceptional combination of speed, flexibility and productivity.

“Many customer projects have boards that require advanced through-hole component soldering,” said Andy Salo, CEO of East/West. “We added selective solder capability to increase efficiency for faster, high-quality soldering while reducing costs for customers. This is particularly useful as we produce boards for COVID-19 ventilators and other heavy through-hole projects.”

“We are pleased to help get East/West installed and operating our selective solder system during this difficult time” said Adam Streeter, Service Manager at Nordson SELECT. “We were able to work within their strict manufacturing protection measures including masks and temperature checks, and install the equipment quickly and with minimal disruption.”

The Cerno 103IL is a fully configurable SMEMA compatible selective soldering system equipped with an automated fiducial location and correction system that provides single click fiducial teach capability, seamless fiducial recognition and true automated alignment and skew correction of a printed circuit board.  Additional standard features of the Cerno® 103IL include high-speed Z-axis motion, dual process viewing cameras, automatic solder nozzle tinning, and interchangeable solder pots and pumps compatible with tin-lead, lead-free or high melting point solder alloys.
