Kurtz Ersa Inc. announces that it was awarded a 2018 Mexico Technology Award in the category of Soldering — Selective for its VERSAFLOW 455. The award was presented to the company during a Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018 ceremony that took place during the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum.
Ersa Vice President of Sales – North America, Ernie Grice stated, “The VERSAFLOW 4/55 demonstrates Kurtz Ersa’s ongoing reaction to the market’s demands for flexibility and throughput. In the changing environment of low-mix to high-volume and high-mix to low-volume, the VERSAFLOW 4/55 has almost an endless configuration of possibilities to meet requirements. We are very pleased to be recognized with this award.”
Ersa presents the future of selective soldering technology with the VERSAFLOW 455, featuring a maximum process window for board assemblies of 508 x 508 mm. This modular selective soldering system can be configured with two fluxer modules, multiple preheat units including upper preheaters and up to three soldering modules.
The wave of innovations continues in the solder module. The Y- and Z- variable solder pots, up to now only available as separate options, are now combined and controllable in the VERSAFLOW 4 software. The parameter Y-variable adjusts the distance of the two solder baths / nozzles automatically to that of the individual boards in a multiple-up. Different multiple-ups with differing offsets can now be processed in mixed production without manual intervention and without loss of time! Also available is the programmable Y-variable for the fluxer. The option Z-variable serves to solder a PCB with two nozzles of different sizes.
The Mexico Technology Awards recognize the best new innovations in the electronics manufacturing industry in Mexico. The goal of the award program is to celebrate the companies and people that are achieving the highest standards and driving the industry forward.
