 RPS Automation Meets the Global Demand for Lead Tinning Capabilities

As the International Market for Lead Tinning Increases, the Anthem System Offers an Excellent Solution

SPOKANE VALLEY, WA –May 18th, 2015– RPS Automation LLC has begun production of three Anthem Lead Tinning Systems in the wake of the 2015 IPC APEX EXPO. Global Engineering and Esterline Leach International are new customers to RPS Automation and chose their Anthem model over many other options as their first Lead Tinning System, while Plexus Peneng is continuing their patronage to RPS with this recent purchase. These consecutive orders show the growing demand for Lead Tinning capabilities and demonstrate RPS Automation’s ability to meet them.

RPS’ Lead Tinning Systems are automated, hands-free robotic platforms designed to tin component leads for re-conditioning and re-tinning applications, including high reliability and military application. For over 20 years, RPS Automation has provided leadership in meeting industry standards for the health and safety of electronic systems throughout their entire product line. As pioneers of the Lead Tinning movement, RPS is excited to continue to offer the capabilities and configurations of their systems to customers, both domestic and internationally. 

In recent years, RPS Automation has set out to expand their reach into the Lead Tinning market and serve customers on a more global level. Plexus Penang is an existing customer, having purchased an Anthem for their plant in the US, but will be using the new Anthem at a site in Malaysia. Global Engineering is based out of Russia, which demonstrates RPS’ growing presence in the Eastern European market, as well. “Strategies for expanding our international presence have been in the works for a while, so it’s exciting to have the opportunity to satisfy the individual needs of our existing customers, as well as those new to the RPS product line,” says Kelsey Solberg, the Marketing & Customers Relations Manager for RPS Automation.
