ACE to demonstrates latest technology

September 17, 2013

ACE Production Technologies will exhibit its newest generation of the popular KISS-104 selective soldering system at SMTA International 2013, scheduled to take place October 15-16, 2013 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas.

The KISS-104 is capable of soldering printed circuit boards up to 18” x 24” (457mm x 610mm) and many leading edge features are included as standard. A fully configured in-line system, the KISS-104 is equipped with “Super Quick” Z-axis motion and closed-loop positioning feedback with linear encoders. The KISS-104 can also be equipped with a dual solder nozzle pump assembly that allows two different sized solder nozzles to operate in tandem, so the user can use the appropriate nozzle for a given site, and handle a wide range of component types and sizes on a printed circuit board assembly.

Other standard features include dual LCD monitors, a “look up” camera for programming and manual fiducial alignment, dual witness cameras to observe soldering in real-time, a heated nitrogen inerting system, off-line programming software, and an atomizing applicator for rapid flux application.

A wide range of various flux types can be applied by the KISS-104 with either an atomizing flux applicator for rapid application or a precision drop-jet applicator for no-clean processing. A considerable advantage of the ACE flux applicators is that they are unlike any others and feature rugged yet simple construction that outperform all other applicators by handling a wide range of flux chemistries including low pH fluxes down to 2.0 as well as fluxes with solids content as high as 35%.
