Innovations in Selective and Hand Soldering
The Selective soldering machine VERSAFLOW ONE – THE ONE FOR EVERYONE
VERSAFLOW ONE is the new entry model into the world of VERSAFLOW inline selective soldering machines. Its flexible, future-proof configuration offers more quality, performance, productivity, variability as well as first-class service and support through the worldwide Ersa network. Thanks to improved heating in the cross profile, the machine’s power requirements have been significantly reduced, resulting in energy savings of 10%. The VERSAFLOW ONE is available with one or two soldering modules and the proven Ersa features: such as automatic nozzle activation, process camera, IR bottom-side heating. Another highlight is the x-variability version (2-stopper solution also available as an option), which leads to a significant increase in throughput – a unique feature in the entry-level class (available: spring 2022). The VERSAFLOW ONE thus allows productivity and cost-effectiveness to be further increased in any electronics production with fast setup and intuitive operation.
The world´s first IoT soldering station i-CON TRACE
i-CON TRACE is the world’s first IoT soldering station that enables full traceability during manual soldering. With integrated WLAN, Bluetooth and network card, it offers 100% connectivity in the manufacturing process. Every soldering process is electronically recorded and documented: PCB, component to be processed, soldering tip used, process temperature and soldering time. The possible connection to an MES allows integration and storage of soldering parameters used in complex, networked manufacturing processes that already run via an MES. Via a mobile app, the i-CON TRACE can also be used like a conventional stand-alone soldering station. With 150 W heating power, the i-CON TRACE offers superior performance and a stable temperature profile. Heating element and soldering tip of the i-CON TRACE can be changed separately, – a clear cost advantage. The patented Tip’n’Turn concept of the i-CON TRACE soldering tips enables lightning-fast tip changes without risk of burns.
Additionally, large-format displays and video clips at the booth show the comprehensive Ersa product range covering solder paste printers, reflow ovens, wave and selective soldering systems, BGA/SMT rework and inspection systems, soldering and desoldering stations as well as hand soldering tools.Live demos directly from the Ersa Application Center allow detailed questions about systems to be clarified.
Outstanding performance, highest machine availability and lowest operating costs of the Ersa soldering solutions have been convincing advantages for numerous customers in India for many years.“We are very excited to present us and the latest Ersa innovations here at Productronica India”, says Sameer Verma, Country Manager, Kurtz Ersa India.
