Kurtz Ersa North America, a leading supplier of electronics production equipment, announces that it recently sold a new VERSAFLOW 3/66 selective soldering machine to Universal Scientific Industrial de Mexico (USI) S. A. de C.V. The system was installed and is in use at USI’s plant in Jalisco, Mexico.
USI purchased a dual conveyor unit with two fluxers and segmented top and bottom preheaters. Additionally, it has two solder modules and a total of four solder pots within the machine. Enrique Diaz, Industrial Manager, stated, “We chose ERSA because they are the only supplier in the market that offers dual conveyors. In addition to our excellent relationship with the ERSA team, they offer low maintenance costs, high performance and high quality yields close to 100 percent.”
The VERSAFLOW 3/66 is the world’s leading platform for selective soldering. The proven third generation technology offers the highest flexibility and highest volume throughput for PCBs sized up to 24" x 24". The use of high-precision servo gantry systems, electromagnetic pumping systems, dual solder pot capability, top- and bottom-side preheating capability, and modularity make ERSA the leader in selective soldering.

Nolan Johnson talks with Senior Product Manager Chris Nash of Indium Corporation, who discusses Durafuse LT, a novel solder paste mixed alloy system with highly versatile characteristics that enable energy savings, high-reliability, low-temperature, step soldering, and assemblies with large temperature gradients. It also provides superior drop shock performance to conventional low-temperature solders, outclassing BiSn or BiSnAg alloys, and performing better than SAC305 with optimum process setup.

In this Q&A, Rob Rowland, director of engineering at Axiom Electronics, discusses his new IPC APEX EXPO Professional Development course, “Reflow Profiling Simplified,” on how to create a standardized methodology to accurately generate new reflow soldering profiles. Rob explains, “In this class, I’ll explain how I approached this work to help others develop similar methodologies for creating their own reflow soldering profiles. My presentation also includes the basic reflow profile recipes I have been using for the past 20 years.”
