Hentec Industries/RPS Automation announces that it will exhibit its full line of selective soldering, component lead tinning and solderability test equipment at the upcoming SMTA Ohio Valley Expo & Tech Forum to be held at the Holiday Inn Strongsville, in Strongsville, Ohio on August 25, 2021.
At the SMTA event, Tom Baro, National Sales Manager for Hentec/RPS, will be on-site to discuss how Hentec/RPS selective soldering, component lead tinning and solderability test equipment can improve the production quality of your printed circuit board assembly operation. The Vector and Valence selective soldering systems feature unlimited program storage, integrated system software, witness camera and auto fiducial correction. Available in either standalone or SMEMA in-line configurations, the Vector and Valence are offered with topside preheat, spray or drop-jet fluxer, dual flux nozzles, and custom or wave solder nozzles. All Vector and Valence systems are UL and CE certified and carry both a two-year system warranty and a four-year solder pot warranty.
Hentec/RPS Odyssey robotic hot solder dip machines are MIL spec complaint component lead tinning machines designed for gold removal, re-tinning applications, including high reliability and military applications as well as BGA de-balling. The Pulsar solderability test system features a dip-and-look qualitative test method to verify the solderability of the surface of electronic components and can be easily performed by shop floor personnel with minimal training.

Happy Holden understands—getting started can be the hardest part. For the past 55 years, he has followed his passion for automation and computers by writing books and white papers, and engineering and managing projects. Each one has always meant one thing: finding the right place to start. The first in a series of eight online sessions starts this Wednesday. Happy will introduce the topic of “Automation and the Journey to Your Smart Factory,” by breaking down the elements this type of journey requires, addressing the five W’s, and encouraging study on your own. Each session, hosted by ICT, is approximately 60 minutes, and is offered at 4 p.m. BST (3 p.m. GMT, 11 a.m. EDT, 8 a.m. PDT) Wednesdays, Sept. 7 to Oct. 26.

I-Connect007’s Happy Holden and Nolan Johnson speak with Zac Elliott, technical marketing engineer at Siemens Digital Industries Software, and Farid Anani, VP of operations at Computrol, about how to achieve operational excellence in electronics manufacturing. They start by discussing the dynamic wherein automation projects may initially create islands of automation and the need to eventually connect those islands to achieve even greater operational efficiencies. The discussion then moves to how to make the data smarter and more useful for analysis and optimization.

Andy Shaughnessy recently spoke with Dr. Bill Cardoso, CEO of Creative Electron, a provider of advanced X-ray inspection systems. Bill discusses some of the new technologies the company will demonstrate in their virtual booth at SMTAI, including a next-generation X-ray parts counter and a new software platform that offers better automation than ever. He also explains the company’s plan to migrate from automation to autonomous systems by using AI to help remove humans from the process.
