Robotic soldering—the latest technological breakthrough

From ultra precise heating and temperature control to active tip technology, soldering robot has evolved to meet the varied demands of operators

A faulty solder joint remains one of the major causes of equipment failure, and thus the importance of the soldering station and high standards of workmanship in soldering cannot be overemphasised. Soldering stations have kept up with the pace of change in electronics manufacturing processes, with respect to the miniaturisation of electronic components, multilayer printed circuit boards (PCBs), etc and offer advanced features to meet the requirements of complex manufacturing. From ultra precise heating and temperature control to active tip technology, soldering has evolved to meet the varied demands of the operators. But the biggest breakthrough in this segment is the development of robot soldering machines. Here’s the latest available in this particular market segment.

SMARTER BRAND S3030-PBT-4-100 Robot soldering systems: Most soldering systems incorporate more than one machine, usually available with an attached desoldering system. That not only helps operators to save money but also to eliminate system downtime. The latest advancements have been in the area of robotic soldering, in which one system comprises four machines including a rework station, a soldering and a desoldering device, as well as a vacuum or hot air pick up. Such soldering machines are suitable for mass production, and have high reliability and 24 hour productivity. They offer ease of use while programming software and using adaptive programming interfaces for different applications. Data retention and storage features are also available. Robotic soldering machines do not just provide real time connectivity but can be accessed remotely from different locations too. “The robotic soldering machine is actually meant for bulk production. As one operator can be assigned to work on four different applications simultaneously, this cuts down on manufacturing time and also leads to uniform and accurate performance. This is best suited for bulk manufacturing and R&D processes,” shares Sourabh Tiwari, product specialist, Weller India.
