Targeted Soldering of Select Components

In the manufacturing of complex or densely populated circuit boards, precision is of utmost importance. Selective Soldering stands out in this regard, as it allows for the application of flux to a specific area of the board. A robotically programmed nozzle is then used to apply solder with pinpoint accuracy, a level of precision unmatched by other methods.

This process is vital when working with thermally sensitive components. It reduces the failure rate and damage that could possibly occur using less exact processes like wave soldering or reflow ovens.

Flexible, Cost Effective, and Automated

Highly adaptable, our machines can be programmed to accommodate various board designs of any shape and configuration without retooling.

While programming the machine may represent an upfront investment, the long-run cost savings are reduced defects of cold solder joints, solder bridges, and overall process efficiency.

By integrating selective soldering machines into our line, we improve the efficiency of the seamless workflow, increase throughput, and raise our level of consistency by reducing defects across the board.
