Pillarhouse International are world leaders in the Selective Soldering industry, dedicated to the ongoing development of pioneering technologies, such as our patented 1.5mm Micro Nozzle, to reflect and match the needs of an everchanging manufacturing marketplace.
What is Selective Soldering?
Selective Soldering is the process of soldering components to a PCB in a way which is quicker than traditional hand soldering, and more efficient than wave soldering. Selective Soldering has become a recognised design process within the PCB manufacturing industry.
What do Pillarhouse offer?
We offer a wide range of Selective Soldering machines, covering the complexity of global demand for production across electronics, aerospace, and PCB contract manufacturing. By combining engineering experience, software development and innovation, we provide cost-effective and reliable Selective Soldering equipment capable of fluxing, pre-heating, soldering and nitrogen generation.

Flux plays an important role in the soldering process by cleaning the PCB component surface to ensure the solder spreads evenly and effectively. With the many flux types available today, whether they are water or alcohol based, Pillarhouse has a solution.
Pre-heating is used on the PCB to enhance the solder process by helping to activate the flux. This method assists solder pull through on multi-layer PCBs and components with significant ground planes. It also reduces the risk of component thermal shock.
The process by which conventional leaded components are soldered onto a PCB. Originally devised for soldering hard to access areas of a circuit board/assemblies, which were historically carried out by hand operators using soldering irons. It has now become a recognised design process within the PCB manufacturing industry.
