SEHO North America, Inc., a worldwide leading supplier of complete solutions for soldering processes and automated production lines, will highlight innovative solutions for cost-efficient high-mix-high-volume production in Booth #1900 at the IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Jan. 25 – 27, 2022 at the San Diego Convention Center.
Time plays a key role in modern electronic production. With the SelectLine platform, SEHO developed a selective soldering system that features a revolutionary design, enabling high mix – high volume production with a maximum degree of flexibility: No change-over is required to process a variety of assemblies with short cycle times, in either mini-wave processes or multi-wave soldering processes.
Maximum throughput requirements are met with the award-winning SmartSplit production mode. SmartSplit is an intelligent software tool that controls and coordinates the process sequence for different assemblies in mixed operation. This newly developed software tool turns an efficient system for batch production into an innovative selective soldering system for high-mix-high-volume production.
SmartSplit automatically distributes the various process tasks to the available process stations that are integrated in the individual machine. As a result, SmartSplit cuts the cycle times in mixed operation in half.
The SEHO SelectLine convinces with maximum precision and solder joint quality that is guaranteed by a complete package for 100% automatic process control. Automatic wave height control and tool measurement, automatic z-value correction, flux quantity control or monitoring of nitrogen quality are just some of the many functions that ensure a safe process.
Additionally, automatic ultrasonic cleaning of solder nozzles ensures the highest reliability and significant cost savings.
Special features of the SelectLine-C are the integrated additional processes. A selective brush station for automatic cleaning of particular board areas from solder residues and solder balls can be implemented after the soldering process.
A zero-fault production turns into reality with the integration of the SEHO PowerVision THT-AOI system. Here, inspection of the solder joints is made immediately after the soldering or brushing process. Assemblies that have been detected with a fault, can automatically be removed from the inline production automatically.
The SelectLine-C not only stands out for its many innovative features, but also for its consistently modular design that ensures clear cost benefits. Several modules with different dimensions can individually be configurated with fluxer, preheatings, soldering units, cooling module, selective brush system and AOI. Depending on the requirements they may be combined to a complete manufacturing line that can be expanded with additional modules at any time, allowing an incremental investment. Up to six soldering units and more than 15 workstations can be integrated in one system.
The SEHO team is looking forward to welcoming visitors to booth #1900 during the IPC APEX EXPO. For more information, visit www.sehona.com.
