Sasinno USA is pleased to announce that it received a 2023 EM Innovation Award in the category of Solder – Selective for its MAS-i2 Selective Soldering Machine with Electro Magnetic Pump. The award was announced at a ceremony that took place April 14, 2023 during productronica China in Shanghai.
The MAS-i2 has a three-section conveyor system: fluxing, preheating, and soldering. While one board is in soldering, another is in preheating and the third is in fluxing, saving time and enhancing production. The system can equip two fluxer valves, either two of the same valves or two different valves. For example, two drop jet valves enable customers to double production; or one drop jet valve and one micro-spray valve enable the use of two different fluxes simultaneously.
For soldering, the system is equipped with two individual solder pots in two individual Z-axis. The soldering area can accommodate PCBs up to W508 x L508 mm (20" x 20") for two nozzles individually, or W235 x L508 mm (9.25" x 20") for two nozzles in parallel.
Customers can program the system to use only one solder pump, two simultaneously to double the speed, or one solder pump with a larger nozzle first and then another solder pump with a smaller nozzle.
This is a huge benefit if a customer uses two types of flux and two different types of solder for their customers – they do not need to waste time on changing the flux in the tank, cleaning the flux nozzle, changing the flux valve, changing the solder pot, waiting for the solder to melt, calibrating solder pot position, etc. This is the most flexible selective solder system with short cycle times.
Established in 2006, the EM Innovation Awards program strives to recognize and celebrate excellence in the Asian electronics industry, inspiring companies to achieve the highest standards and push the industry forward.
The Sasinno brand stands for “Smart and Steady Innovation.” The company has established a strong worldwide distribution channel with well-trained engineers to support its customers in any location.
