March 14, 2017

The KISS-101 selective soldering system has been installed at the P4Q USA Incorporated facility located in Albuquerque, New Mexico and is the third selective soldering machine P4Q USA Incorporated has ordered from ACE Production Technologies.

“The KISS-101 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-101 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.”
