JPL Selects ACE Selective Soldering System for Laboratory Facility


Reading time ( words)

ACE Production Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of selective soldering systems, component lead tinning systems and lead tinning services, is pleased to announce that the Jet Propulsion Laboratory has invested in a third KISS-103 selective soldering machine.

The KISS-103 selective soldering system will be installed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory facility located in Pasadena, California and is the third selective soldering machine Jet Propulsion Laboratory has ordered from ACE Production Technologies.

 “The KISS-103 is a fully-configured selective soldering platform equipped with “Super Quick” processing speeds and closed-loop positioning feedback with linear encoders,” said Alan Cable President of ACE Production Technologies.  “The KISS-103 comes standard with the ACE automated fiducial location and correction system providing single click fiducial teach capability, seamless fiducial recognition and true automated alignment and skew correction 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.”

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory is a unique national research facility that carries out robotic space and earth science missions and is managed for NASA by Caltech.  JPL helped open the space age by developing America's first earth-orbiting science satellite, creating the first successful interplanetary spacecraft, and sending robotic missions to study all the planets in the solar system as well as asteroids, comets and the earth's moon.

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.
