Kurtz Ersa North America, a leading supplier of electronics production equipment, is pleased to announce that Philips Lighting Electronics Mexico (PLEM) has purchased two POWERFLOW N2 systems. As Ersa’s flagship machine, the POWERFLOW N2 was specifically designed to meet the challenges of lead-free.
“I selected the ERSA PowerflowN₂ because I wanted to maximize PCB production speed and minimize dross,“ said Jose Edgar Camacho Molinares, Soldering Specialist, Engineering, Philips Lighting Electronics Mexico. “The PowerflowN₂ has enabled us to increased our production speed and eliminate dross. Additionally, the PowerflowN₂ give us better hole filling in spite of using less silver / no silver content alloys.“
The POWERFLOW N2 can reduce lead-free wave solder running costs by up to 90 percent. Additionally, the machine highlights a 16" or 20" board width, plug and play pre-heat design (Medium IR, Convection, Short IR and now with new topside Convection) and 1.8 meters of preheat standard. Additional pre-heating of up to 2.4 meters can be added if needed.

Currently, production capacity is more than 40 MM ballasts + 12 MM LED Lamps per year, with upward flexibility to produce nearly double that amount.
