The installation of the recently purchased two ULTIMA STR2 selective solder systems and an ULTIMA SSP selective fluxer by Calsonic Kansei Mexicana S.A. de C.V., a subsidiary of Japan's Calsonic Kansei Corporation

Electronic automotive component manufacture Calsonic Kansei Mexicana S.A. de C.V., a subsidiary of Japan's Calsonic Kansei Corporation, recently purchased two ULTIMA STR2 selective soldering equipment and an ULTIMA SSP selective fluxer. The new equipment reduces process time 30-50% compared to the system it replaced, primarily due to the fact that separate machines allow simultaneous fluxing and soldering with a single fluxing unit serving two selective systems. Quality is also dramatically improved: On the company's first day of production with the ULTIMA systems, 300 PCBs were produced with zero defects or quality issues of any kind.

A unique aspect of the ULTIMA STR2, is a high-precision, programmable PCB holder that moves boards in the X, Y, and Z axes over a stationary solder pot and wave nozzle, allowing for a highly stable wave as small as 2.5 mm in diameter. The systems were also purchased with automatic solder feed mechanisms that eliminate the need for an operator to monitor and maintain the solder pot level.

The new equipment was installed by SMT equipment provider Manncorp and included full training on both operation and maintenance. Under the direction of Manncorp service technicians over the next two days, Calsonic process engineers programmed a sceond application and seamlessly took over full production; again defect-free.

Calsonic Kansei Mexicana, whose main customer is Nissan Mexico, manufactures fully customizable instrument clusters and HVAC controls for the automotive industry. Their plants in Taiwan and Japan also use the ULTIMA systems extensively.
