ITW EAE – Soltec – Delta X Wave Soldering Machine
Up to three products can be porcessed simultaneously for maximized throughput.
Pressure controlled flux supply with stepper motor for precise, repeatable flux application.
Heavy Duty Titanium Fingers
Standard HD fingers will dramatically reduce finger replacement
Flexible chain allows for smooth interface and will not warp the assembly due to the thermal expansion
PCB Tracking Systems
The Delta X platforms tracking systems automatically recognizes the mechanical contact point of all subsystems, these positions can be modified per recipe.
- Allows for recipes independent optimization of wave contact position
- Assists with warped assemblies at wave interface
- Prevents masking of overhanging components
- Keeps excessive flux of pallets, minimizing cleaning
Conveyor System – Parallelism
A robust conveyor and chains keep the assembly interface with the wave equal and parallel.
Multiple lead-screws that are mechanically driven ensure parallel rails: Parallel to 1.0 mm
Solderpot blocking system guarantees repeatable positioning
Ensures repeatable interfacing of product to the solderwaves
Thermal expansion systems on entrance end allows for smooth trouble free operation
Preheat configurations for process flexibility: IR calrod, quartz lamps and forced convection. Modules are easy exchangeable and configurable in the software.
Titanium solder pot components with unique dross management design.
Ensures proper loading and unloading of the PCB in the fingers
Mechanical sensitivity adjustment
Software controlled sensitivity time out and on/off
Location specific crash alarm and designation
Base Wire Support
Optional PCB wire support from fluxer to end of main wave
Retracts under rail when not in use via down turn cams
Supports multi-up panels
1.5 mm wire
Nozzle Spray Fluxer
Accurate and repeatable
Heavy duty locking mount of spray nozzle
Accurate flux deposition by stepper motor control
Sealed flux delivery system
Statistical test analysis confirmed high repeatability
Under rail protection covers prevent flux penetration to underside of rail and conveyor chains
Ease of use
Decreases wetting time
Up to 50% reduction in dross
Low cost of ownership
Ensures excellent hole fill by producing vertical pressure within the wave
Allows for soldering certain SMT assemblies with one wave
Increase wave depth without pumpkin additional solder
