Accelerated Assemblies Boosts Capabilities with ACE Soldering Technologies


Reading time ( words)

Accelerated Assemblies Inc. has strengthened its capabilities by investing in a KISS-102IL in-line selective soldering system from ACE Production Technologies Inc.

Accelerated Assemblies is a full service EMS provider offering prototype and medium volume printed circuit board assemblies. Its services offered include prototype assemblies, turnkey prototype assemblies, production assemblies, and full turnkey production assemblies for different markets including municipal vehicle, bio medical equipment, aerospace, data communication and industrial control.

The KISS-102IL selective soldering system has been installed at Accelerated Assemblies' facility in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, and is the first selective soldering machine Accelerated Assemblies has ordered from ACE Production Technologies.

"The KISS-102IL 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-102IL 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."

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.
