Supplied as standard with our patented design Drop-Jet fluxer, this system offers accurate, controlled flux deposition either prior to or during the optional top side preheat function. Preheat can be controlled via an optional top-side closed loop pyrometer system for optimum temperature profile regulation. Our low maintenance solder bath and pump mechanism moves in three axes. Solder is applied using our proven technology single point AP nozzle design incorporating patented spiral solder return to bath technology offering increased wave stability with reduced potential for solder balls. The system can also accommodate our latest generation micro nozzle, together with Jet-Wave, Wide-Wave and dedicated multi-tube single dip solder technology. As with all Pillarhouse systems, the soldering process is enhanced by a hot Nitrogen curtain which provides an inert atmosphere for the soldering process and also assists in the prevention of oxidation. This process provides a local preheat to the joint thus reducing thermal shock to localised components. The Synchrodex is controlled by a PC, through PillarCOMM, a Windows® based ‘Point & Click’ interface with PCB image display. Additionally, our PillarPAD offline package allows the operator to produce programs independently from the machine using Gerber data.
