Fusion platform incorporates high speed DC servo drive and reduced line length. Standard cell handles PCBs up to 508 x 952mm (fluxer/preheat/solder), or for high speed applications can be configured with fluxer/preheat and up to 3 solder modules with 5 heater options. Solder cells can be configured with custom dip, multi-dip, jet-wave and single point AP down to 1.5mm. Features auto pot changer for noncontact changeover.
90iSC lead-free solder alloy is said to process much like a traditional SAC alloy but with superior temperature cycling performance, consistent with or better than conventional SnPb solders. Is a multi-component alloy based on traditional SAC but with improved temperature resistance and reliability characteristics. Has a temperature cycling range from -40° to 155°C, optimized creep resistance at high temperature, vibration and drop test performance comparable to SAC and other lead-free alloys and has printing and reflow behavior consistent with alternative lead-free materials. Is compatible with several Henkel lead-free and halogen-free flux systems.
Divisio 1000 Easy Duo is for low-stress, automatic PCB depaneling. Includes two loading drawers, linear motor gantries and a host of standard features including a camera system, fiducial recognition and camera assisted program generation.

XM AOI camera module has an image capture rate of up to 1.8 gigapixel/sec.. Features four-color illumination from all spatial directions for optimum contrast for all recognizable solder defects as well as for special effects such as script, polarity marks or colored components. Switchable optical resolution of 16 or 8 µm for higher throughput requirements. Extension of the angled view, capture of additional images for the verification station, and additional illuminations are nearly cycle time-neutral, for operator flexibility. Inspects down to 01005 components. Comes on S6056 AOI.
Konform Flexcoat conformal coating is said to be as flexible as an RTV silicone, but without the disadvantages of silicone. Provides a soft, rubbery protective coating. Is said to coat evenly and provide a flexible, durable protective barrier against humidity, salt, corrosive vapors and fungus. It for flexible and rigid printed circuit boards and electronics assemblies. Cured coating can be removed by cutting a small section and peeling the coating away from the surface, or by solvent immersion of the whole board. Meets IPC-CC-830B Class B. Contains a UV indicator for quality control inspection. Compliant with European RoHS and REACH directives and most other environmental standards.
Smart-Release nano layer stencil coating is said to reduce the frequency required for under-screen cleaning on the printer. Test results demonstrated that over 40 prints before cleaning can be reached, reportedly with no deterioration in print quality or bridging. Helps solder paste separate more easily from the stencil, with less contamination on the underside. Apertures and component edges are cleaner. Comes on all types of stencils, including laser cut, electroformed, NicAlloy, and chemically etched.
