Third KISS 103 Selective Solder System

Computrol, Inc., a world-class provider of mid- to low-volume, high-mix electronic manufacturing services to OEMs, has placed an order for its third KISS 103 Selective Solder System from ACE Production at its manufacturing facility in Meridian, Idaho. The new unit will be installed at the Orem, Utah plant after great success with the first two units at the company’s Meridian, Idaho facility.

“We decided to purchase another ACE KISS 103 since we have experienced excellent, consistent results with the first two,” said James Spencer, Engineering Manager at Computrol. “We have been able to significantly reduce the amount of hand soldering we perform, eliminate masking and expensive solder pallets, and increase throughput. The ROI was well worth the cost.”

The fully configured automated selective soldering machine features the new high-speed Z-axis, resulting in 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.
