AirBorn Electronics Invests in ACE Selective Soldering Equipment


Reading time ( words)

ACE Production Technologies, Inc. is pleased to announce that AirBorn Electronics has invested in a KISS-103IL in-line selective soldering system.

The KISS-103IL selective soldering system has been installed at the AirBorn Electronics facility located in Akron, Ohio and is the second selective soldering machine AirBorn Electronics has ordered from ACE Production Technologies.

“The KISS-103IL is a fully-configured SMEMA compatible selective soldering platform equipped with “Super Quick” processing speeds and the unique dual solder nozzle systems enabling the use of multiple nozzle shapes within the same program,” said Alan Cable President of ACE Production Technologies.  “The KISS-103IL comes standard with the ACE automated fiducial location and correction system that offers seamless fiducial recognition and true automated X-Y alignment and corrects any skew of the printed circuit board.”

Cable added, “Other innovative features include the new SWAK-OS machine operating software which is a revolutionary graphics-based programming and editing machine control system that features fast program loading and program recall with minimal operator intervention.  A major benefit of the SWAK-OS is the integrated board scanning function that automatically captures and saves an image of a printed circuit board to the selective soldering program.”

AirBorn Electronics, Inc. is a full service electronic contract manufacturer serving a diverse group of customers including manufacturers of medical instrumentation, military electronics, semiconductor instruments, industrial controls and commercial products.  Products range from individual printed circuit boards to completely assembled and tested systems.  Their services include full SMT and mixed technology assemblies, electromechanical and chassis integration, prototype and pre-production runs, and specialized rework and wiring systems.

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.
