Circuits Assembly Honors Ersa with FOUR Awards for Its New VERSAFLOW 4, HOTFLOW 3/20, ROBOPLACE and IMAGESOFT

Kurtz Ersa North America announces that it was awarded four 2016 NPI Awards during a Tuesday, March 15, 2016 ceremony that took place at the Las Vegas Convention Center during the IPC APEX EXPO. Ersa won in the following categories: Component Placement – Multi-function for the ROBOPLACE, Soldering – Selective for the VERSAFLOW 4, Soldering – Reflow for the HOTFLOW 3/20 and Software – Process Control for the IMAGESOFT Software.

Albrecht Beck, President of Kurtz Ersa NA commented, “This is another example of our mission to continue to innovate and optimize our products for the needs of the electronic manufacturing consumers around the world. The four awards confirm that we are meeting the needs of our consumers with these new products and we are so honored for this recognition.”

With the VERSAFLOW 4/55, Ersa presents the next generation of the worldwide leading VERSAFLOW inline selective soldering system, offering a full range of new features: the new, intuitively operable, award- winning user interface ERSASOFT 5.0, motorized adjustable Y-axis for fluxer- and solder module, Y- and Z-variability, full convection preheater and a 508 x 508 mm usable process area for inline production. Through the perfect interaction of all system components, the process flexibility is once more increased and the productivity is further optimized.

ERSA’s ROBOPLACE rings in a new era in man - machine collaboration during the soldering process. With its flexible dual-arms technology it frees up the operator to turn to more demanding tasks. While it does not replace the operators, it rather permits their transfer to perform higher-valued tasks. The lean-concept in combination with the SMART-factory is implemented, and a link to Factory 4.0 (Industry 4.0) is prepared. 

With the Ersa Hotflow 3/20 VOIDLESS, Ersa presents a process efficient solution to minimize the occurrence of voids, which is characterized by its high throughput in inline operation, short process times and low operating costs. The VOIDLESS module, for which no additional maintenance is required, can be activated /deactivated at any time and reduces the occurrence of voids when compared to other soldering processes by up to 98 percent.

Ersa IMAGESOFT is the new augmented reality tool allows 3D insights of the VERSAFLOW 4/55 and HR 600 rework system via tablet without opening the machine covers. Equipment operators, service engineers, technicians and maintenance teams are in the position to view the complex and hidden machine parts and assemblies directly from the outside – without having to open the machine covers. Through enlarging the individual components, the part numbers identifying the components are automatically displayed.

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
