Juki offers a new lineup of popular selective soldering equipment � the FlexSolder Series. Comprised of three models, the FlexSolder W510 is a mini-wave that handles boards up to 510 x 510 mm.
FlexSolder W510 uses the same selective soldering technology that has been successful in the past but with a new flexible design that allows the machine to be assembled anywhere, and to allow complete option upgrades in the field.
The advantage of Juki's selective soldering machines over competitors remains the same as in past machines, i.e. the ability to have multiple mini-wave nozzles soldering simultaneously or even running separately using two different size nozzles. The benefit is that a nozzle as small as 1.8 mm can be used for tight areas (1 mm away from SMD or other components) on densely populated boards and a larger nozzle for making single passes on large connectors. This adds much needed flexibility to the process, allowing various soldering options with no changeover.
