SASinno Americas is pleased to announce its new demonstration center in Washington. The facility houses an Ant-i1 offline selective soldering machine and SELMATE-4 N2 generator for demonstrations. The center is focused on through-hole soldering technology, including selective and wave soldering.
“As a selective soldering machine manufacturer driven by innovation, this is a very important step in the North American market for SASinno Americas,” stated Leo Peng, CEO. “It will play a critical role for market development, technical support, training, service and parts support etc. North American customers can get demos and support locally, and talk with soldering gurus. Meanwhile in the long-term, it will enable us to work closer with local customers and develop more interesting features and machines for this market.”
The Ant-i1 includes a drop jet fluxer, a bottom preheating zone and optional top preheating zone, and solder pot with 15 kg capacity. It can handle boards up to 350mm L x 260mm W and manually rotates boards to 180 degrees.
