RPS Automation Selective soldering – APEX EXPO #adafruitAPEX @IPCShow #IPCshow #apexexpo

Rps
We are at the APEX Expo and we are in the market for a selective soldering station, we stopped at RPS Automation to check out their machines!

What is selective soldering?

Selective soldering uses traveling flux and miniwave technology to apply a precise amount of flux and solder to select through hole components terminations on a printed circuit board (PCB). RPS uses several types of XYZ axis configurations to articulate the soldering miniwave beneath the circuit board.

RPS designs and manufacturers a complete line of high precision automated selective soldering systems. All RPS systems perform precise dip, drag and dip soldering using innovative RPS Gaussian MiniWave Nozzles™ and high durability spray, jet and ultrasonic flux nozzles; both nozzles articulate below the PCB. Solder management systems can be hot-swapped for lead and lead-free processing in the same system.

RPS offers the widest range of process capabilities in the industry. From space saving 12 x 12” (300 x 300mm) systems to the largest native processing range in the industry at 24 x 24” (600 x 600mm).

We are considering the “Rhythm Slide”Learn morePDF here.


What is APEX?

Thousands of industry professionals from more than 50 countries attend this premier event— featuring advanced and emerging technologies in printed board design and manufacturing, electronics assembly, test and printed electronics! Find new suppliers with new solutions and connect with colleagues from around the world.

There is even a hand soldering competition on Weds 1pm to 4pm at booth 2713 (more special events here).

  1. I watched the video of this thing in action – how does it not make a total catastrophe of the board bridging solder everywhere?
