Nordson Select, a Nordson company, and a provider of selective soldering systems, is pleased to announce the launch of its Cerno 300S compact in-line selective soldering system. This compact system is rapidly gaining acceptance within the company’s growing base of customers and is capable of selective soldering printed circuit boards at the same speed as larger or more expensive machines.
The Cerno 300S is a compact in-line selective system featuring combined fluxing, preheating and selective soldering. This offers exceptional, superior process control, and is ideally suited for prototype, small batch production or cell manufacturing requirements. A significant advantage of the system is its compact footprint that requires less than 1.1 square meters of factory floor space while still having the capability of soldering printed circuit boards up to 500 x 300 mm (19.6 x 11.8 in).
Standard features of the machine include an in-line SMEMA chain conveyor, nitrogen preheating, and a full titanium solder pot and pump assembly compatible with all solder alloys plus easy tool-free maintenance. The modular design of it allows options to be added as application needs change. Available options include fully automated fiducial alignment and board mapping, full surface topside infrared preheating, process viewing camera, and a data logging system with traceability of all process parameters.
