As global markets change, organisations have the opportunity to differentiate themselves with “IIoT Technology” that delivers genuine business benefit, ensuring increased productivity and profitability. Pillarhouse International customers look to us not only for support, but technology that can give them an advantage in a competitive marketplace. The IPC-2591 CFX standard is the first and only standard that directly addresses customer’s increasing need for digitalisation as part of a Smart Industry 4.0 factory, without dependencies on middleware or other services that have, with previous technologies, introduced additional costs, functional limitations, delays, and variation in the way that data was interpreted. CFX is the fundamental step towards genuine Industry 4.0. (さらに…)

EPAC BV with location in Weert (NL) manufactures customer specific printed circuit assemblies, where not only the SMD components but also the thru hole components require perfect soldering. With its investment in the popular Pillarhouse Jade MK-II selective soldering machine, the company guarantees its customers high quality solder joints.
EPAC has a wide range of customers who integrate their products in different applications. This means that the company must be able to respond to many different demands of their customers, ranging from cable production to electronics production in small and large quantities. Notwithstanding that nowadays a lot of components are processed in SMD, there are still a number of conventional components, in particular displays, connectors and power components that have to be soldered manually or mechanically.
“With the request for more double-sided reflow in combination with power components, we have been looking for a high quality and flexible solution for quite some time now. “says Arno Boot, owner of EPAC BV. “The supply of selective soldering brands is large and we had to weigh our investment against manual soldering.”
Selective soldering provides a high quality soldered connection and is also aesthetically better because no resin or flux residues remain on the PCB. Depending on the application, each soldering point can be soldered individually or in series. Not so much the higher speed, but the repeatability, quality and stability of the process are decisive purchasing factors.
“We tested different manufacturers and systems, both standalone and inline, but immediately after the first demonstration at Smd-Tec we were impressed with the ease of use, flexibility and results of the Pillarhouse Jade machine”, says Florin Ciubotariu, production manager at EPAC BV. “To be completely sure of the capabilities, we did an additional test on a product with a very small pitch in combination with long pins, and also on that challenging product the machine gave perfect results.”
The manufacturer of the Jade MKII machine Pillarhouse has over 30 years of experience and a very large install base at both world-renowned and less well-known companies. Its Jade MKII platform is the world’s most popular and best-selling standalone selective soldering machine.
“It pleases to once again proof that this machine has one of the best quality / price ratios, which results in a record sales year in the Benelux,” says Tom Van Tongelen, Smd-Tec managing director. “Many customers find it a difficult ROI calculation, but bottom line is that it’s an investment that earns itself back in a very short time, because we time and time again make the un-solderable solderable. “
Pillarhouse USA announces appointment of Airtron Electronics Inc to Canadian Provinces of:
Alberta, Manitoba, Quebec, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island
Global manufacturer and supplier of selective soldering systems, Pillarhouse USA, Inc. is pleased to announce the appointment of Airtron Electronics Inc, to spearhead sales efforts in the Canadian Provence’s of Alberta, Manitoba, Quebec, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island territories.
Pillarhouse is a world leader in the design and manufacturing of selective soldering systems from hand-load (batch) processes to fully automated high-speed lines. Pillarhouse manufactures a wide range of modular and hand load equipment to fit the changing marketing market needs of today.
Airtron Electronics was formed in 1982 to provide outstanding support and ‘best in class’ product offerings to the electronics manufacturing industry. Richard Kocheff, President, commented “were please to represent the leader in the selective solder market, this equipment compliments our current line of Industry leading Principles”.
Global manufacturer and supplier of selective soldering systems, Pillarhouse USA, Inc. is pleased to announce the appointment of Z Tech Services, to spearhead sales efforts in the Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska territories.

Z Tech Services, Inc. was established in 1993 based on Our Promise to Provide Optimal Service to Electronic Production Equipment Manufacturers. Thomas Jura, President, commented “We are pleased with the appointment by Pillarhouse USA, to represent them in Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. This addition adds to our already impressive list of Industry Leading Principals.”
To provide its products with the highest quality and durable solder joints, the engineering firm HMD Engineering located in Nieuw-Vennep, Netherlands, recently invested in the new Pillarhouse “Pilot” Selective Soldering System.
In spite of a rapidly evolving market and the need to provide more and more functionalities on a small surface, it is impossible to obtain all components in SMD package. As an engineering firm that produces tailor-made developments for their customers and normally does not have to produce large quantities, HMD Engineering has traditionally made the choice to do everything in-house; from development to production.
“When it comes to THT soldering, we get confronted with more and more double-sided PCBs on the one hand, and on the other hand our traditional wave soldering machine did not produce enough satisfactory results,” says Rob Huiberts, owner of HMD Engineering. “Especially for smaller companies it is important that we can differentiate ourselves through flexibility, customer service and top-level quality.”
The Pillarhouse Pilot machine is a table model selective soldering machine, which gives the same quality soldering results as its larger brothers Jade and Fusion. It uses a precise Drop Jet fluxer, combined with global and local preheating and a soldering pot that can be equipped with a wide range of nozzle styles to handle any kind of soldering. The PCB remains completely horizontal and the patented return spiral and settings of the pump ensure a repetitive and high quality soldered connection.
“The products we develop include applications such as line scan cameras, data loggers and sensors that are used in extreme conditions. The electrical connection of the components that can endure a mechanical force is therefore indispensable for a reliable product.” according to Rob Huiberts. “We are very satisfied with this investment, and we experienced that by replacing the manual soldering we can also free up more time to realize other projects.”
“The purchase of a Selective Soldering System is an investment that is difficult to calculate for many companies.” confirms Tom Van Tongelen, owner of Smd-Tec, the partner for Pillarhouse in the Benelux region”. The Pillarhouse Pilot offers a financially viable solution and from the experience of our Pillarhouse customers we can see they benefit from using this process. Apart from a repetitive result, the soldering is stronger because you can give each pin its own setting, and the PCB is much cleaner without flux residues. As a bonus the reduced consumption of solder and flux is not only good for the financial bottom line, but also for our environment.” he concludes.
Over recent years there has been a big push to try and remove wave soldering from the through -hole assembly process. This is not always possible. Common wave associated problems such as bridging between pins and skipped joints etc. inevitably require a high reliance for a re-work function with this mode of operation. (さらに…)
