KISS 103 Selective Soldering System

 Computrol, Inc., a world-class provider of mid- to low-volume, high-mix electronics manufacturing services to OEMs, recently installed another KISS 103 Selective Solder System from ACE Production at its manufacturing facility in Meridian, Idaho. Additionally, the company purchased a spray fluxer for mini-wave applications for both its new and existing KISS 103 Selective Solder units.

After realizing the process and quality benefits from the first ACE Production [Selective Solder Machine,] we quickly moved to add a second ACE Production KISS 103 for our tin/lead products,” said Eric Ames, Manufacturing Engineer at Computrol. “We are seeing the same time improvements in not masking or hand soldering the boards as well as consistent solder quality.

Computrol’s purchase of the first KISS 103 eliminated masking and hand soldering, resulting in significant time savings and leading to the decision to invest in a second unit. The production of boards that required skilled employees to hand solder/fountain now are being run on the KISS 103, allowing the skilled employees to focus on other higher-level work. As a result, Computrol is experiencing substantial improvements in time standards as well as consistent quality of the boards soldered on the KISS 103.

The fully configured automated selective soldering machine features the new high-speed Z-axis, providing a 20 percent increase in production speed. The KISS 103 comes standard with universal PCB location rails with motor-driven adjustment, a heated Nitrogen inerting system, manual fiducial alignment and the KFS-DJ Automated DROP JET Fluxing System.
