I got some info about it last year. I could not justify ROI since this machine was way too expensive (same thing with Vitronics Selective machines). You need to see if this machine will increase your throughput or not depending on your products.

Also for any selective machine, you might have to buy tooling like holding frames for small boards to optimize cycle time. This tooling must be included also when calculating ROI.

Here are my two cents! George

It's been a few years, but lack of preheat was my problem with this machine.

Preheat is a option that we use on almost all boards. We have the pillarhouse jade models.
