January 31, 2017

The KISS-102 selective soldering system has been installed at the American Power Conversion Corporation (APC) facility located in Rosario, Cavite, Philippines and is the first selective soldering machine American Power Conversion Corporation has ordered from ACE Production Technologies.

“The KISS-102 is a fully-configured selective soldering platform equipped with “Super Quick” processing speeds, heated nitrogen inerting system and automated wave height detection system,” said Kevin Valentine, Sales and Service Manager-Americas, 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. In addition, the KISS-102 can be equipped with a dual solder nozzle pump assembly that allows two different sized solder nozzles to operate independently for greater flexibility and processing efficiency.”

Valentine added, “Other innovative features include the new SWAK-OS machine operating software which is a revolutionary graphics-based programming and editing machine control system that features fast program loading and program recall with minimal operator intervention. A major benefit of the SWAK-OS is the integrated board scanning function that automatically captures and saves an image of a printed circuit board to the selective soldering program.”
