Specialist thermal profiling tools for the electronics industry
SolderStar's range of thermal profiler equipment, accessories and software tools are second to none for output, reliability, repeatability, accuracy and longevity.
SolderStar enables electronics manufacturers to control and optimise their thermal profiles, ensuring:
- Reliable, top quality products and solder joints
- Increased productivity
- Process repeatability
- Simplified QA and process documentation
Unique battery technology and the best heat-shielding available make SolderStar’s Neptune dataloggers the coolest in the industry. They operate at higher temperatures, for longer, and more effectively but remain the slimmest dataloggers to be found, making them ideal for all sizes of reflow oven, even small-aperture ovens.
Keeping things simple
Straightforward terminology and heavily graphics-based software allow operators to understand at a glance where their processes are and how they should be optimised.
SolderStar has also simplified the decision-making process for companies looking to invest in their thermal profiling capabilities: its SolderStar LITE and SolderStar PRO products are designed for the technical and budgetary requirements of low, medium and high-volume lead-free electronics manufacturing environments, and can be upgraded as those requirements change.
For high performance, ease-of-use and affordability, SolderStar offers a winning combination to novices and expert profiling professionals alike.

It is hard to open an Industry newsletter or visit an equipment manufacturer’s website without coming across a mention of the Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0, SMART Manufacturing or ‘big data’. The accessibility to obtain data will only increase and this information and its real-time processing will become one of the most important resources for companies in the future. Production machinery will no longer simply processes the product, but the product will communicate with the machinery to tell it exactly what to do. Industry 4.0 has the vision to connects embedded system technologies and SMART production processes to drastically transform industry and production giving way to the SMART factory development. Future development in oven technology will allow machines to be controlled more intelligently and remotely resulting in the lowest cost model for manufacturing flow....
