Speedline displays new technologies at APEX 2006
Feb 09, 2006
Speedline Technologies, Inc. has launched its new VectraElite wave soldering system to the North American market as it showcases its most technologically advanced and innovative solutions for the SMT and Semiconductor industries at APEX in Anaheim.
Speedline's new VectraElite, the next generation of its Vectra wave soldering system features UltraFill nozzles, upper High Velocity Convection (HVC) preheat module and its revolutionary ServoJet fluxing system.
Speedline will also preview its new Post Wave Cooling (PWC) module and the Optima ultrasonic spray fluxing system featuring Ultra-SprayÂ® technology. Collectively, these and other advanced technologies specifically designed for today's lead-free wave soldering process demonstrate Speedline's continued wave soldering process and technology leadership.
Speedline will preview several new options for its innovative, parallel processing MPM Accela printing system, designed for manufacturers requiring high volume throughput with high yield performance. They include a new High Speed Inspection option capable of performing full 2D inspection of either or both the substrate and the stencil at line speed, a new option for process setup verification and traceability utilizing bar code reading capability and enhancements in the machine software â€“ as well as a new option for closed loop control of the printer using external inspection information.
Also on display are two of Speedline's MPM AccuFlex stencil printers. The two radically different configurations represent the system platform's unrivalled flexibility. Besides various other tooling options, Speedline will showcase the system's new VacuNest tooling, a simple to use solution that requires minimal setup time and provides the benefit of a dedicated support tool with the flexibility of pin-based systems. The AccuFlex is ideally suited for moderate volume, high-mix printing at a cost-effective price and combines accuracy and flexibility in a compact footprint. The system provides only what is needed for efficient and precise printing, while offering manufacturers a full range of options for future expansion.
