West Caldwell, NJ — Fancort Industries is now the North American distributor of the Japan UNIX robotic laser soldering systems. Laser soldering, a noncontact method of soldering, has some distinct advantages over contact soldering. It's also an excellent solution when it's difficult to get a soldering iron to the point of contact, or throughput needs to be higher, or more intense focused heat is required.

The laser system uses a high-output laser diode as a heat source to perform non-contact spot soldering through optical fibers. The laser is an especially suitable technique to use for very small spot heating. The UNIX laser systems have models with power options of 20 to 75 watts, spot size down to 0.2mm, and custom lenses to create various shapes such as a triangle, doughnut, and more.
One of the most unusual features is the patented coaxial CCD camera which is built into the laser head to make programming very easy. The irradiated laser shoots an image of the target point which is seen on the camera display as the operator programs the robot. The laser control can store up to 32 output conditions, and 63 soldering conditions overall in the complete program. Solder wire feed amount and rate is programmed on the teach pendant, as are all the robot work points. If solder paste is being used, the feeder is not required.
The laser system is integrated into desktop robots with working area up to 510 x 510 x 150mm. They are also available with SCARA or multi-articulated robots for in-line automation.
