ACE expands board size of the KISS-102

September 10, 2013

ACE Production Technologies is pleased to announce that the board size and soldering area of its KISS-102 selective soldering machine has been enlarged to meet customer requirements for increased flexibility.

The board size and soldering area of the popular KISS-102 has been expanded from 12” x 12’ (300mm x 300mm) to 16” x 16” (406mm x 406mm) with no increase in machine footprint and at no additional cost. This means the KISS-102 is capable of soldering printed circuit boards up to 16” x 16” (406mm x 406mm) and offers many of the same features as the KISS-102IL in-line selective soldering system but in a standalone platform.

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 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%.

A fully configured selective soldering platform, the KISS-102 is equipped with “Super Quick” Z-axis motion and closed-loop positioning feedback with linear encoders. Rapid setup time and reduced time to achieve first production are expedited with the available KISSware off-line programming software for ease of use. Other available options include a dual solder nozzle pump assembly for greater flexibility and efficiency, fiducial alignment and dual LCD monitors.
