Kurtz Ersa North America, a leading supplier of electronics production equipment, announces that its representative, The IPS Group, will highlight its complete product line at the SMTA Dallas and Houston Expo & Tech Forums. The SMTA Dallas Expo is scheduled to take place Tuesday, March 24, 2015 at the Plano Centre in Plano, TX, and the SMTA Houston Expo will take place Thursday, March 26, 2015 at the Stafford Centre in Stafford, TX. The IPS Group will discuss the complete Ersa product line, including the HR 600 hybrid rework system and Smartflow 2020 selective soldering system.
The HR 600 is equipped with a highly dynamic and efficient heating technology with the bottom-side heating (2,400 W) divided into three independent heating zones. The newly developed hybrid top-side emitter provides 800 W of heating power and combines the advantages of infrared heating with those of a convection heater. In order to thermally control the rework process, the HR 600 uses proven closed-loop technology. The component temperature is measured and can be controlled exactly. With the HR 600, non-contact temperature measurement is even more precise due to a digital infrared sensor (pyrometer).
The Smartflow 2020 selective soldering system requires less than 3 m² of space, thus fitting optimally into cell production environments. In all process steps the automatic Smartflow system uses the same successful and proven Ersa Selective Soldering Technology as the large Ersa VERSAFLOW systems without compromising quality and accuracy. With the Smartflow, ERSA finally closes the gap from its high end Versaflow platform to an entry level machine. Due to its universal pallet fastening, the Smartflow can handle PCB sizes of up to 508 x 508 mm [20” x 20”].
