Robotic soldering

We love our robots.  And we know that soldering is a critical component of the electronic assembly process. So we’ve invested heavily in robotic soldering.

Why? Because robotic soldering offers a number of real benefits over traditional manual soldering.  Soldering robots are faster and more accurate than manual soldering. And as components get smaller, and printed circuit boards (PCBs) seem more densely packed with components, it’s more likely that projects using traditional manual soldering processes may be incorrectly soldered or missed altogether. Added to that, errors when soldering manually are inconsistent and difficult to detect.



Once a robot has been programmed to a certain path and quality level, it will repeat it exactly, soldering each join precisely and never missing one. If errors ever do occur, they can easily be corrected through simple reprogramming. And with human errors and mistakes taken out of the mix, obviously fewer defects will be found, notably decreasing the amount of rework needed and increasing the throughput.

Read about the 7 reasons why we use robotic soldering.

Accurate  Far higher accuracy than conventional through hole assembly. With 0.01mm resolution and accuracy. Even fine pitch connectors are easily solderable.

Fast Capable of soldering a joint every second allowing our three machines to complete 250,000 joints per day. 24/7 operation with accurate repeatable processes, eliminating bottlenecks and minimising errors.

Versatile  Easily programmed to ensure a joint best suited to the application. Varying an array of parameters including contact angle, solder feed rate, tinning rate, pre heat time and flow time.

High quality  Monitored and programmed by IPC trained technicians ensuring all joints meet the quality expected.

Consistent and repeatable  Every joint is close to identical due to the precisely programmed joint parameters. Higher quality work with fewer mistakes with less time wasted.

Cost effective Minimal operator interaction and lower operating costs producing significant savings across a project life cycle

Improved safety risks inherent with hand soldering are eliminated, including burns, fume inhalation, fatigue and hand and eye strain.
