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.
