The MUST System 3 is the latest technological evolution of the original Multicore Universal Solderability Tester (MUST II) that grandfathered all modern solderability test standards. It remains the unquestioned industry benchmark for solderability testing. Capable of measuring down to 0.001mN the MUST3 is the most accurate and comprehensively equipped test system of its type in the world.

The Gensonic Stencil Cleaning System, awarded the European Product of the Year at Productronica 2013, is a manually operated ultrasonic transducer unit for cleaning stencil apertures.

The Gensonic can be used either in conjunction with our Stencil Cleaning Centres or portable enough to be taken directly to the printer thereby greatly reducing production downtime and printer resetting.

The Solder-Saver offers companies that use wave soldering the opportunity to instantly recycle dross created in the wave solder pot, thereby saving up to 50 percent in new solder bar purchases. It can be used with leaded, lead-free or unleaded wave soldering machines.

Also available in Gen3’s manufactured product line is the Ionic Contamination Systems, also known as the CM Series, Dip and Spray Coating Systems, Wizard Thermal Profiling, SIR and CAF Testing Systems and Solder Paste Inspection
