RPS Introduces New Military Compliant Lead Tinning System

Anthem System Meets MIL, NASA, ANSI, IEC, GEIA Standards for Component Re-Tinning

Spokane Valley, WA, March 22, 2010— RPS Automation LLC, a manufacturer of precision soldering automation equipment to the OEM, circuit board manufacturing and assembly industries, today announced the introduction of the Anthem Lead Tinning System™, a fully ANSI, MIL, IEC and GEIA compliant system. The Anthem is the first of its kind to offer this level of high reliability military standards compliance in a small-footprint and affordable package. The Anthem is suited for high precision, low-mid volume in-house re-tinning of electronic components and leads. This product is available immediately and will be at APEX 2010/Las Vegas.

Reid Henry, Engineering Director for RPS Automation, stated, “This is a leap forward in functionality, footprint and ease of use. Based on feedback from dozens of existing lead tinning customers, we were able to make tremendous strides in ease of maintenance, all while adding the new functionality to meet the complex requirements of the IEC and MIL standards.”

“We selected the Anthem System because RPS continues to innovate. To put it simply, the new features of this system are not offered by any other vendor. And the willingness of RPS to work with us to configure the system with the wide range of features set them apart as a true partner,” said Nick Blamey of EPAK, England.

The Anthem System is based on 15 years of RPS experience in building low and high volume lead tinning systems. The Anthem is a next generation platform that delivers the same durability and precision for which RPS is known. Anthem Features include:

• Flexible configurations: two (2) dynamic solder pots, pre-heat station, flux station

• High precision ball screw drives for fast, quiet, durable motion control

• PID temperature control to meet precision thermal requirements

• Windows? PC for rapid programming and unlimited program storage

• Programming control includes: solder temperature; dynamic solder flow; emersion depth acceleration, deceleration, and feed rate; dwell time; X and Z axes and optional rotary motion
