Thermaltronics to Demo Best-in-Class Robotic Soldering Systems at the SMTA Tampa Bay Expo


Reading time ( words)

Thermaltronics USA, Inc. announces that it will exhibit at the SMTA Tampa Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Tuesday, October 5, 2021 in Tampa Bay, Florida. Thermaltronics will highlight the TMT-2200S – “simultaneous” dual port operating solder station, TMT-R8000S Solder Robot and TMT-R9900S Inline Robot Soldering System.

The TMT-2200S is based on Curie Heat Technology which responds to the thermal demands of each solder joint by adjusting the power instantaneously, thereby meeting the exact requirements of the substrate component and solder material. The TMT-2200S has two operating modes. It can provide dual port simultaneous soldering or, by combining the power of the two ports, it can deliver superior power and performance, to meet the most demanding soldering applications. Maximum flexibility allows the use of K, P and S Series tips for standard operating modes and KD series for those heavy-duty applications.

The single-head 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.

The TMT-R9900S functions as an inline or stand-alone production system and is equipped with full vision to verify the procedure being undertaken and does not simply follow a pre-determined program. In this respect it has an observation mode, a verification mode and as a result – a decision making capability.

This equipment is autonomously capable of collecting and utilizing data for production processing, which is one of the most important factors necessary to meet the requirements of Industry 4.0 standards. 

In addition to the hand soldering product line, Thermaltronics also provides an extended range of accessories to support both production and rework applications.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.

Book Excerpt: 'The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Solder Defects'

06/07/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.

KIC Adds Wave Monitoring Technology to Industry 4.0 Ecosystem for Thermal Processes
