ACE to Exhibit Newest Soldering Technologies at SMTA International 2016


Reading time ( words)

ACE Production Technologies, Inc. will exhibit its newest soldering technologies at SMTA International 2016, scheduled to take place September 27-28, 2016 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.

On display will be the KISS-101IL a fully-configured SMEMA compatible selective soldering platform equipped with standard features including automated 2-point fiducial alignment and skew correction system, high-speed Z-axis, heated nitrogen system, witness camera and automated fluxing. The KISS-101IL comes standard with the ACE automated fiducial location and correction system that provides single click fiducial teach capability, seamless fiducial recognition and true automated alignment and skew correction of the printed circuit board.

Other innovative features of the KISS-101IL include the 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.

Also on display will be the LTS100 a benchtop lead tinning machine designed for the lead tinning process whereby through-hole component leads, or terminations, can be refurbished for re-qualification in high-reliability applications. The removal of gold plating, replacing of RoHS surface finish with tin-lead finish, refurbishing of legacy components, or tin whisker mitigation are the major reasons to hot solder dip component leads.

Standard features of the LTS100 include two dynamic nitrogen inerted solder pots – one solder pot is dedicated to removal of the original plating while the second solder pot is used to apply the final plating – a dynamic flat wave fluxing station, and a forced hot air preheat station. A pallet holder holds the components in a known position throughout the process and accepts a wide variety of component types including axial, radial, DIPs, SIPs and connectors.

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.
