ITW Sees Drastically Increased Nitrogen Purity with South-Tek Systems Nitrogen Generator

Reading time ( words)

South-Tek Systems is pleased to announce that it participated in the recent Kurt Whitlock Associates (KWA) Open House at KWA’s Demonstration Lab in St. Cloud, Florida. South-Tek Systems’ N2GEN TS Nitrogen Generator was paired with the ITW EAE Vitronics Soltec Zeva M selective solder machine. ITW ran circuit boards using the South-Tek N2GEN PSA nitrogen generator and realized nitrogen purities up to 99.999 percent.

The N2GEN series of PSA nitrogen generators are custom designed and can be packaged with a dedicated air compressor, dryer and/or booster if needed for a complete turnkey solution. For larger flow rates or redundancy, duplexing options are available.

Since 1978, Kurt Whitlock Associates has searched the world for cutting-edge companies to represent and distribute to its valued electronics assembly customers and potential markets. Since 1998 KWAs Demonstration Lab has developed process solutions and equipment selections that have and can be duplicated throughout customers production facilities.

Kurt Whitlock Associates understands the tiers of assembly requirements of its customers. The company represents an array of companies that provide unmatched solutions to meet high volume, high mix, and mid to low volume requirements with the same level of service and technical support.

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.

How to Minimize Quoting Time and Increase Accuracy in EMS Production

03/30/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
New product introductions (NPIs) and customization have been increasing rapidly over the past few years—with the results that the already-small profit margins in electronics assembly are shrinking even further. Fifteen years ago, the PCB was the product. Today, most products are a system, with multiple PCBs, cables, and enclosures. Many manufacturers want to provide turn-key products that have multiple BOMs, making the assembly process even more complicated.
