Jade Prodex

Ultra-flexible, offline, multi-platform, quick load twin PCB rotary table selective soldering system

Designed to meet the needs of the small batch manufacturer who requires high levels of production flexibility. The Jade Prodex offers the ability to regularly change solder alloys without incurring expensive down time, whilst the solder bath cools down and heats up during a regular manual changeover process.

The Jade Prodex is an offline system, incorporating a quick load, twin PCB, universally adjustable, rotary table transport system to allow simultaneous load/unload during product processing.


As standard, the Jade Prodex machine is configured with our Duplex twin solder bath arrangement. On adjacent, independent Z axis drives, this setup offers increased production flexibility by permitting the use of two different nozzle tip sizes, which can be allocated as process requirements dictate within any particular area on a PCB.

The Prodex series is controlled by a PC, through PillarCOMM, a Windows® based ‘Point & Click’ interface with a PCB image display.

Additionally, our optional PillarPAD offline programming package allows the operator to produce programs independently from the machine using Gerber data.
