ACE Production Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of selective soldering systems, is pleased to announce that the BAE Systems’ Fort Wayne operations has invested in a KISS-103IL in-line selective soldering system.
The KISS-103IL selective soldering system has been installed at the BAE Systems facility located in Fort Wayne, Indiana and is the third selective soldering machine BAE Systems has ordered from ACE Production Technologies.
“The KISS-103IL is a fully-configured SMEMA compatible selective soldering platform equipped with “Super Quick” processing speeds and the unique dual solder nozzle systems enabling the use of multiple nozzle shapes within the same program,” said Alan Cable President of ACE Production Technologies. “The KISS-103IL comes standard with the ACE automated fiducial location and correction system that offers seamless fiducial recognition and true automated X-Y alignment and corrects any skew of the printed circuit board.”
Cable added, “Other innovative features include the new SWAK-OS machine operating software which is a revolutionary graphics-based programming and editing machine control system that features fast program loading and program recall with minimal operator intervention. A major benefit of the SWAK-OS is the integrated board scanning function that automatically captures and saves an image of a printed circuit board to the selective soldering program.”
