The FlexSolder W510 is able to handle dual mini-waves for simultaneous or individual use. The advantage of individual use is having the ability to solder closer than 1mm to other SMD, but also being able to solder large connectors or other devices without the need for changing nozzle sizes. This is done automatically during production. No other machine in this market has this ability.
This adds much needed flexibility to the process, allowing various soldering options with no changeover.
The flexibility of the W510 is also evident in that it offers both 7° soldering that supports laminar nozzles and 0° soldering that supports wetted nozzles down to 1.8mm. A wide variety of other nozzles are also available for use with the W510 including nozzles up to 30mm and a special miniature wide wave which supports 60mm wide soldering.
