ROCHESTER, N.Y. A.C.E. Production Technologies donated a KISS 102 selective soldering system to the Center for Electronics Manufacturing and Assembly (CEMA) at the Rochester Institute of Technology (R.I.T.) in Rochester, N.Y.
The programmable selective solder machine uses traveling mini-wave delivery, filling a niche between full automation and hand soldering. Controls set immersion depths, pre-heat dwells, travel distances and speeds, solder temperature, wave height, and other parameters.
The CEMA will use the machine to support education, research, and training initiatives. Al Cable, president of A.C.E., delivered and installed the system; professor S. Manian Ramkumar, director of CEMA, accepted the system on behalf of CEMA and the R.I.T. staff. For more information about CEMA visit smt.rit.edu.
