AMETEK Chooses ACE Dual Pot Selective Soldering Equipment Once Again


Reading time ( words)

ACE Production Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of selective soldering systems, is pleased to announce that AMETEK has purchased a KISS-102ILDP dual pot in-line selective soldering systems from ACE.

The KISS-102ILDP selective soldering system is installed at the AMETEK Programmable Power manufacturing facility located in San Diego, California and is the second selective soldering machine AMETEK has ordered from ACE Production Technologies.

The KISS-102ILDP dual pot in-line selective soldering system significantly reduces the overall processing time by concurrently soldering two different printed circuit boards utilizing two separate solder pots, each equipped with their own independent X-Y-Z axis positioning system.  The KISS-102ILDP is a fully-configured SMEMA compatible selective soldering platform equipped with “Super Quick” processing speeds and is capable of soldering printed circuit boards up to 16” x 16” (406mm x 406mm).   Additionally the KISS-102ILDP can be configured together with the ACE in-line fluxer and preheating unit to further increase the overall throughput of the entire soldering process.

The dual pot machine architecture of the KISS-102ILDP allows for both tin-lead and lead-free solder pots to reside within the same machine so each can be used as required via process control and interlock to safeguard against intermixing of solder alloys.  Additionally, both solder pots can be equipped with a dual solder nozzle pump assembly that will allow for four (4) different solder nozzle shapes within one machine platform for greater flexibility and processing efficiency.  A wide range of various flux types can be applied with either an atomizing flux applicator for rapid application or a precision drop-jet applicator for no-clean processing.

AMETEK Programmable Power is a global leading manufacturer of programmable AC and DC power supplies, electronic loads, application specific power subsystems, and compliance test solutions marketed under several brand names.  AMETEK products are used in a variety of applications including avionics, general R&D, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) compliance testing, semiconductor fabrication, oil exploration, solar array and battery string simulation.

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.
