HARRISBURG, Pa. The Rhythm selective soldering system from Tyco Electronics presents solder from the underside of the board without additional tooling or accessories. This system is said to provide an effective entry point to solder thru-hole and odd-form components into surface mount and mixed-technology PCBs.
A tilting axis enables various processing capabilities, such as small keep-aways. The machine offers an optional nozzle configuration for processing printed wiring boards (PWBs) over a 4", flat wave-solder nozzle. It conforms to SMEMA inline manufacturing standards and suits small- or large-lot quantities with high product mix. An optional infrared preheater facilitates operations that have higher thermal needs. Tyco will offer the machine and service as part of a sales agreement with RPS.
