RPS Selective Soldering Systems to use Parker domnick hunter for Nitrogen Generation

RPS in partnership with leading supplier of N2 generation equipment; customers in production.

Spokane Valley, WA, March, 12, 2009� RPS Automation LLC, a global supplier of selective soldering, lead tinning and solder test equipment to the electronics manufacturing industry, today announced an integrated partnership with Parker domnick hunter, a global leader in gas generation, to supply N2 Generation equipment to RPS selective soldering customers.

"High purity nitrogen can greatly benefit the selective soldering process�, said Reed Gaither, CEO of RPS Automation. �We are pleased to partner with a leader in the field of gas generation to provide our customers with nitrogen production that is reliable, high quality and cost effective.�

As part of the partnership, domnick hunter is manufacturing nitrogen generators specifically for RPS selective soldering applications. These N2 generation systems provide high quality nitrogen on a 24x7 basis, long-term dependability and rapid ROI. RPS customers are achieving payback in as little 30 days with attractive leasing, and in 6-12 months when purchased in full.

�We worked hard with RPS to put together a partnership that produces meaningful benefits for their selective soldering customers�, said Chris Bogenski, Market Development Manager for Parker domnick hunter. �RPS and their team of skilled field technicians are committed to this value�added effort and have proven their expertise at installing and supporting our mutual customers. We look forward to working with RPS as they continue to grow.�

RPS customer Larry Rising of Tyco Automotive stated �the RPS / domnick hunter nitrogen generator greatly eliminates downtime. RPS selective soldering runs 24/7 and is critical to our success; we couldn't risk production downtime if we ran out of nitrogen.�

RPS selective soldering systems require 30 CFH of high purity nitrogen to inert the soldering mini-wave nozzle. This volume of nitrogen usage is extremely efficient, but nitrogen remains a consumable item that is needed in a reliable and high quality format. Many selective soldering customers endure the cost, burden and undependability of nitrogen supplied via nitrogen tanks. These tanks need to be replaced on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Tank replacement is time consuming, labor intensive and results in lost production time. Nitrogen generation systems provide a more dependable and productive alternative.

In Qu�bec, Canada, Luc G�linas, Pr�sident of Synapse �lectronique, commented, �the RPS technicians had us up and running right away. We considered N2 tanks, but the N2 generator from RPS / domnick hunter is easier to use, provides higher purity N2 and delivered rapid payback. We run our RPS selective soldering production worry-free.�

Unique highlights of the partnership include:

o Parker domnick hunter is producing a unique product line for RPS.

o RPS technicians have been certified by domnick hunter for N2 system installations and customer training.

o All N2 generator sales include installation, training and hook-up to the RPS selective soldering system.

o RPS N2 generators include 1 year full warranty and an optional 2 year warranty.

In Chicago, Illinois, Greg Biesiadecki, Vice President of Alpha Electronics International added, �RPS and domnick hunter are vendors who deliver high quality, durability and dependability. We can't image running our selective soldering operation without an N2 generator from domnick hunter.�
