PNC Improves Manufacturing Capabilities with Ersa Selective Wave Solder


Reading time ( words)

PNC Inc. has improved its manufacturing capabilities with the recent purchase of an ECOSELECT 2 selective wave solder machine manufactured by Ersa.

In today's advancing technological climate, boards are more frequently being designed with a high concentration of mixed technologies. A selective wave solder machine has many advantages over a traditional wave soldering machine which made this an appropriate investment for PNC to make.

Not only is a selective solder cleaner in terms of less flux residue being left on the board's surface, it is also more economical due to the reduced amount of flux used. Instead of passing over a wave of molten solder introducing the board to another heat cycle, these machines have nozzles that are programmed to only put solder where needed. As a result, the flux that precedes the solder is also only placed where needed, which in turn leads to a cleaner board. Once programmed, a selective wave solder can cut down on hours of manual through-hole soldering.

"The acquisition of the Ersa ECOSELECT 2 Selective Wave Solder is in keeping with our philosophy of providing the best quality under the Total Concept model while still maintaining some semblance of cost efficiency. By adopting the Total Concept, we have been able to provide our customers with a full suite of quality printed circuit board solutions under one roof," said President and CEO Sam Sangani.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
