Computrol, Inc., a world-class provider of mid- to low-volume, high-mix electronic manufacturing services to OEMs, has selected ACE Production Technologies as its supplier of choice for its selective solder needs. The company has purchased its fifth KISS-103 Selective Solder System.

Now installed at Computrol’s Meridian, Idaho facility, this marks Computrol’s fifth KISS-103 system, with three at this facility and two at the Orem, Utah plant. Additionally, Computrol has upgraded the two existing KISS 103 systems at the Meridian facility and added a 3" wave capability to one of the machines.

Our experience with the ACE KISS-103 has been extremely favorable at both of our facilities,” said Steve Dillion, Production Manager at Computrol. “The increase in production speed and broader flexibility that these additional systems and upgrades allow will enable us to further streamline our process flow. This, in turn, translates to increased capacity and throughput while maintaining the stringent levels of quality and on-time delivery that Computrol is known for.”

We are pleased that Computrol has once again chosen ACE as their selective soldering supplier of choice,” said Alan Cable, President of ACE Production Technologies. “Our dedicated team of outstanding employees at ACE continues to deliver revolutionary new technologies and excellent support, and is vital to making ACE an exceptional supply partner.”

The KISS-103 is a fully configured automated selective soldering machine that can solder boards up to 18" x 24" (457mm x 610mm). It is equipped with “Super Quick” Z-axis motion, resulting in a 20 percent increase in production speed. The KISS-103 comes standard with the SWAK-OS operating system software and the ACE automated fiducial location and correction system. It provides single click fiducial teach capability, seamless fiducial recognition and true automatic alignment of a printed circuit board. The KISS-103 also is equipped with the ACE drop-jet spray head capable of precision flux application with virtually no overspray for true no-clean processing.
