Hughes Electronics installs second machine
The KISS-101IL selective soldering system will be installed at the Hughes Electronics facility located in Livonia, Michigan and is the second selective soldering machine Hughes Electronics has ordered from ACE Production Technologies.
“The KISS-101IL 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%,” said Alan Cable President of ACE Production Technologies. “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.” 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.”
