ITW EAE wins product introduction award

30 April 2024 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

ITW EAE has earned a 2024 New Product Introduction (NPI) Award for Electrovert’s Deep Wave option for wave soldering machines.This new, innovative system provides the ability to pump up to a 20 mm wave height. NPI Awards recognise the leading new products for electronics assembly during the past 12 months. Recipients are selected by an independent panel of practising industry engineers.

A major market trend is that PCB designs continue to increase in complexity and cost. Board assembly manufacturers therefore rely on equipment suppliers to innovate options providing increased performance and capabilities. An area of attention pertaining to high density/high value plated-through-hole (PTH) board assembly designs is the use of wave soldering to maximise throughput and optimise soldering results.

The Deep Wave option overcomes the challenges associated with deep pockets and masking, and provides a wave depth necessary to achieve topside hole fill. In some applications the 20 mm capability has removed the need for an additional soldering process. The Deep Wave option is a recipe-controlled parameter in the machine software that can make changes between different wave heights within 10 seconds. The Deep Wave option complements other Electrovert value-added options including ExactaWave (automatic wave height adjustment), adjustable wave pump RPM’s settings, forced convection blower speed adjustments, and precision-selective fluxing that can all be adjusted on-the-fly.
