We are extremely pleased to announce that following successful trials at the Kurtz Ersa Application Centre in Wertheim Germany, South Coast based CEM Esprit Electronics have ordered the Versaflow 455 #Selectivesoldering system with the #VERSAFLEX module. This innovative system offers substantial added value for the production process by potentially doubling the soldering throughput. Unlike the standard dual pot configuration that works on either a Z or Y variable soldering process, this system has two solder pots that are installed on two independent axes. Uniquely, these pots can be moved and adjusted individually in X-Y-Z direction. Thus PCB panels can be soldered simultaneously in X or Y axes, incorporating different size nozzles if necessary. The result is the highest flexibility and shortest cycle time. In addition, the CAD Assistant 4 offers offline programming with automatic optimisation of cycle times and the possibility to work with ODB++ data, as well as DXF and JPEG formats . This is the first VERSAFLEX system in the UK and we’d like to thank Operations Director, Graham Page and Technical Director, Lee Holloway for taking the time to visit and choosing Blundell/Ersa as their partner for selective soldering.
