SHEBOYGAN, Wis. The Flux Drop-Jet system from Castle Controls & Automation LLC offers a comprehensive flux-control system with storage container and modular controls. The system retrofits into existing selective soldering machines.
To apply 2- 4-mm drops of flux, the machine includes a flux head with 130-µm nozzle, a cartridge, nozzle clean-out needle, in-line filter, pressure regulator, and polypropylene storage container. It reportedly operates with any known flux chemistry. The separate electronic module provides on/off and drop-frequency control.
