Impossible Objects Wins Two Mexico Technology Awards at SMTA Guadalajara

Impossible Objects is pleased to announce that it received two 2022 Mexico Technology Awards in the categories 3D Printing and Soldering Equipment – Wave for its Solder Pallets. The awards were announced during a ceremony that took place Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2022 during SMTA Guadalajara in Mexico. 

Pallets and fixtures require machining and skilled labor to produce. This traditional production process is slow and expensive. Impossible Objects’ revolutionary Composite Based Additive Manufacturing (CBAM) is breaking that paradigm.

“Every solder pallet requires unique design considerations to optimize solder flow and PCB component coverage,” said Robert Swartz, Chairman and Founder. “Our team provides engineering support to help ensure that your pallet design will deliver the results critical to your business. Our CBAM (carbon-based, additive manufacturing) technology produces cost-effective, durable, pallets, quicky, allowing our customers to meet essential timelines.”

Impossible Objects 3D prints wave solder pallets and fixtures using carbon fiber reinforced with high temperature PEEK polymer. These materials provide excellent thermal and chemical resistance for the wave solder process. Impossible Objects customers report that its pallets withstand thousands of cycles without material degradation or warping. 

Wave solder pallets and high temperature fixtures support the mass manufacturing process of printed circuit boards, resulting in tremendous cost benefits. They reduce setup time, improve solder flow, reduce bridging and solder skipping, eliminate labor intensive hand masking, reduce board warping and protect heat-sensitive components.

The Mexico Technology Awards acknowledge the latest innovations available in Mexico produced by OEM manufacturing equipment and materials suppliers during the last 12 months. For more information, visit
