ACE Receives NPI Award for its JEDEC Tray-to-Tray Lead Tinning System


Reading time ( words)

ACE Production Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of selective soldering systems, lead tinning systems and lead tinning services is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a 2016 NPI Award in the category of soldering equipment for its LTS300-JEDEC tray-to-tray lead tinning system.

The LTS300-JEDEC is the most technologically advanced molten solder lead tinning system on the market consisting of two dynamic nitrogen inerted solder pots, a dynamic flat wave fluxing station, forced convection preheating, aqueous wash and drying stations, plus a JEDEC tray stacker forming a complete work cell.

At the heart of the new LTS300-JEDEC is a fully integrated vision system consisting of top and bottom viewing cameras for accurate alignment of electronic components prior to re-tinning to ensure complete control over fine-pitch components during immersion and extraction of the hot solder dip process.  The vision system also performs post-tinning inspection to detect potential solder bridges before placing components back into a JEDEC tray.  The LTS300-JEDEC is a fully-configured system capable of performing a molten solder component lead tinning process for gold removal and re-tinning of components for Class 2 and Class 3 applications in compliance with the new J-STD-001, Rev F requirements.

The dual solder pot machine architecture of the LTS300-JEDEC allows for component re-tinning in accordance with GEIA-STD-0006 requirements to enhance component solderability.  The LTS300-JEDEC is capable of re-tinning leaded fine-pitch components such as QFPs as small as 6mm x 6mm or as large as 50mm x 50mm with a lead pitch down to 0.012” with bridge free results.  In addition, bottom terminated components such as QFNs and DFNs as small as 3mm x 3mm and with a lead pitch down to 0.5mm can be re-tinned all the while maintaining world-class coplanarity within 0.003” for these leadless devices.

Sponsored by Circuits Assembly, the NPI Award program recognizes the electronics assembly industry’s leading new products and is an annual celebration of product excellence within the electronics assembly industry.  Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
