Crane Aerospace chooses ACE again

September 09, 2014

ACE Production Technologies is pleased to announce that Crane Aerospace & Electronics has invested in a second KISS-102 selective soldering system. The new KISS-102 selective soldering system has been installed at the Crane Aerospace & Electronics manufacturing facility located in Lynnwood, Washington and is the second selective soldering machine Crane Aerospace has ordered from ACE Production Technologies . “The KISS-102 is a fully-configured selective soldering platform equipped with “Super Quick” processing speeds and closed-loop positioning feedback with linear encoders,” said Alan Cable President of ACE Production Technologies. “The KISS-102 comes standard with the ACE automated fiducial location and correction system providing single click fiducial teach capability, seamless fiducial recognition and true automated alignment and skew correction of the printed circuit board.” Cable added’ “A wide range of various flux types can be applied by the KISS-102 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 outperforms 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%.” Crane Aerospace & Electronics is a major manufacturer of critical systems and components for the aerospace and defense markets worldwide. Their 2,800 employees produce products that are found in some of the most demanding environments, from engines to landing gear, from satellites to medical implants, and from missiles to unmanned aerial systems.
