selective wave soldering unit | 20 December, 1999

hello guys ; we are using some standard selective wave soldering unit used in lined ; the drawback of a such machine is 1/the speed which is quiet low (the board is coming on position through the conveyor, then the head delivering the solder moves slowly to the point to be soldered ) 2/ the head is very small(diameter of several millimeter) so it means that if you have pin through hole components with a distance between pins upper the several millimeter of the head (very common), the head is not able to solder the different pins in one time so too long time . my question are : do you know some standard selective wave soldering unit providing large head (several centimeter)able to solder in one time a large area ; this will reduce dramatically our process time . i am opened to discuss this topic and i am waiting for some idea , brand ...etc . have a good christmas

Pascal,

Have a look at this Web site:-

I think you may find a suitable alternative here.

You have a nice Christmas also.

Pascal: Two things:

1 Selective soldering machine discussions and supplier lists are in the SMTnet archives. 2 Some people consider selective soldering machines to be very specialized use tools (too selective ha ha ha) and think carriers tooled for their application to be more useful. (Carrier suppliers are in the archives also.)

Although I am certainly no expert here I have seen a very fine looking piece of machinery for selective soldering. Although it too has a small fountain it is fully programmable and relatively fast. It is the Seho MWM3250. Check it out, it will be worth your time.
