APS Intros Entry Level Selective Soldering
Entry-level selective soldering system.
Huntingdon Valley, PA — APS Novastar, LLC is unveiling a new cost-effective and reproducible solution for automated selective soldering with the introduction of its ESS Selective Soldering Machines. Specifically designed for assemblers making the transition from manual or semi-automatic to automated selective soldering, the new selective soldering machines provide a new entry point in cost-effective, easy-to-operate options for short-run, batch-selective soldering applications.

The ESS 310 and ESS 500 machines are described as robust systems for batch processing of mixed technology boards that require selective soldering of through-hole components. Automating the soldering process increases the reliability of solder joints and reduces production costs. The exceptional accuracy and repeatability with near zero-defect solder joint yields and the flexibility to perform single point, drag, mini-wave or dip soldering, increases solder joint quality and board throughput.

These all-inclusive systems, with on-board flux, preheat, and omnidirectional soldering, are easy to program with on-board, touch screen, microcontroller and intuitive programming software. For increased productivity and throughput, off-line programming and photoscan software are also available.

According to the company, it developed the ESS Machines specifically to address those assemblers looking for an easy-to-use, entry-level selective soldering machine that will allow them to increase productivity and reduce costs. The machines' flexible programming, small footprint, and durable construction of the along with their attractive pricing, will allow more assemblers to seriously consider automated selective soldering as an option for their through-hole soldering needs.
