Showcasing the latest selective technology at SMTAI

September 02, 2014

ACE will showcase its newest generation of selective soldering technology at SMTA International 2014, scheduled to take place September 30 and October 1, 2014 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. On display will be the new KISS-103IL equipped with expanded capabilities including standard features such as an automated 2-point fiducial alignment and skew correction system, high- speed Z-axis, heated nitrogen system, a witness camera and automated spray fluxing system. Available options include a drop-jet fluxing system, additional witness camera, dual LED monitors, topside preheating, an in-line fluxing and preheating module, offline programming and a 75mm wide wave nozzle allowing the KISS-103IL to function as a wave soldering machine. The KISS-103IL is a fully-configured SMEMA compatible selective soldering platform equipped with “Super Quick” processing speeds and when equipped with a drop-jet flux applicator can handle a range of flux chemistries including low pH fluxes down to 2.0 as well as fluxes with solids content as high as 35%. The KISS-103IL 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 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.
