Novastar expands soldering machine range

11 May 2011 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

APS Novastar has expanded its suite of soldering products to specifically address the needs of low-volume, high-mix soldering applications.

The recent introductions of ESS selective soldering machines, EWS-500 wave soldering machines and ERO-500 reflow ovens are specifically designed for low-volume, high-mix assemblers, providing new easy to operate options at cost-effective entry points for batch soldering applications.

The ESS selective soldering machines are all-inclusive batch soldering systems with onboard touch screen and micro-controllers, and feature onboard flux, preheat and omnidirectional soldering. Their accuracy and repeatability, along with flexibility to perform single point, drag, mini-wave and dip soldering, increase solder joint quality and board throughput. For increased performance, off-line programming and photoscan software are also available.

The EWS wave soldering machines employ a durable ‘L’ finger handling mechanism allowing for efficient, palletless board transport. Continuous width adjustments allow for quick changeover for all board widths up to 310 mm. The streamlined design of the machines makes maintenance and cleaning easy and the durable welded steel frame construction provides years of reliable service.

The ERO-500 reflow oven is a five-zone conveyor reflow oven that offers flexibility in optimising reflow profiles for lead and lead-free soldering of SMT boards, hybrid boards and curing of glue and thick film pastes. Each heating zone is independently programmable and controlled through the onboard LCD system controller. Users can define parameters for conveyor speed, heating temperature, convection heat flow and cooling fans to control reflow profiles for optimal results.
