Nordson Select, a Nordson company, and a provider of selective soldering systems, has introduced its Cerno 300S compact in-line selective soldering system. This compact system is rapidly gaining acceptance within the company’s growing base of worldwide customers and is capable of selective soldering printed circuit boards at the same speed as larger or more expensive machines.
The space saving Cerno 300S will be on exhibit in at the upcoming 2020 IPC Apex Expo, scheduled to take place February 4–6, 2020 at the San Diego Convention Center in California.
The Cerno 300S is an in-line selective system featuring combined fluxing, preheating and selective soldering offering exceptional value and superior process control and is ideal suited for prototype, small batch production or cell manufacturing requirements. A significant advantage of the Cerno 300S is its compact footprint that requires less than 1.1 square meters of factory floor space while still having the capability of soldering printed circuit boards up to 500 x 300 mm (19.6 x 11.8 in.).
Standard features of the system include an in-line SMEMA chain conveyor, nitrogen preheating, and a full titanium solder pot and pump assembly compatible with all solder alloys with easy tool-free maintenance. The modular design allows options to be added as application requirements change. Available options include fully automated fiducial alignment and board mapping, full surface topside infrared preheating, process viewing camera, and a data logging system with traceability of all process parameters.
