Japan Unix, a solutions provider for manual and soldering automation, will exhibit at the 2016 IPC APEX EXPO. Products on display will include the Solder Meister High-Performance Soldering Robot: UNIX-410 Series.
The premium model achieves fast, precise, and high-quality soldering operation offers two slim types of high performance soldering robots. Both come with a clean cut feeder and lock-on mechanism, which are the most popular automatic options for precise work. The model offers durability and repeatability for cellular manufacturing. Additionally, UNIX-410S features “Kaizen” and “Poka Yoke” functions to maintain output quality and production speed. This high-performance soldering robot improves cycle times by more than 15 percent.
The technology makes automation possible where it previously has not been practical. Technology is evolving quickly with the emergence of ultra-fine electronic circuit boards and multi-layered electrical components. Laser soldering makes it possible to solder ultra-fine areas and others that are difficult to reach using tip soldering.
Ultrasonic soldering is mainly used for “flux-less soldering” or “flux-free” to non-metals such as glass, ceramic, and difficult-to-solder metals such as aluminum and stainless steel. Environmental concerns have been seen in global societies and manufacturing industries as represented by RoHS and other regulations. Ultrasonic soldering helps manufacturers to reduce or eliminate the use of halogen material, which is the main chemical in flux.
