Pillarhouse at IPC APEX 2018

Launching new products and innovations

Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA – February 2018 – With the IPC APEX 2018 show just around the corner, Pillarhouse are pleased to confirm that they, once again, will be attending the show. As is customary, Pillarhouse will be demonstrating their extensive range of Selective Soldering Systems; from their entry-level Pilot through to their premium in-line Orissa Fusion system.

The Pillarhouse Pilot is perfect for small to medium batch hand-load operations wanting a high specification value option. This system is also ideal for SME producers where floor space is at a premium and flexibility and energy saving are key considerations. The Pilot is available with an optional nitrogen generator which is neatly built into the base of the system.

The Orissa Fusion is a high-speed, in-line, multi-platform Selective Soldering System, incorporating high speed PCB transfer, the Orissa Fusion platform offers the ultimate in flexibility, coupled with reduced line length at a lower cost compared to current market offerings.

With what is believed to be an industry first, Pillarhouse will be demonstrating a Selective Soldering System that can be fitted with interchangeable mechanical and magnetic pump systems. By offering a single system that can take both pump styles Pillarhouse are giving the choice back to the customer.

Pillarhouse will be also exhibiting its new “Wave Enhancement” rework system. This is a special adapted Synchrodex selective soldering system, in line with a Landrex Optima III SSI. The AOI system has been developed specifically for the through-hole inspection of assemblies as they come out of a Wave solder machine. The AOI passes the inspection information to the Pillarhouse selective machine. The Pillarhouse software then uses this data to repair the failed joints.
