As part of the entry-level philosophy for this system, a low maintenance solder bath and pump mechanism has been developed which moves in three axes of movement whilst not limiting access to the PCB. Solder is applied using proven technology through our AP nozzle design or custom specialised nozzles, incorporating patented spiral solder return to bath technology offering reduced solder balling potential.
As with all Pillarhouse systems, the soldering process is enhanced by a hot Nitrogen curtain which provides an inert atmosphere. This method of soldering also assists in the prevention of oxidisation and provides a local preheat to the joint, thus reducing thermal shock to localised components.
The Jade MKII is controlled by a PC, through PillarCOMM, a Windows® based ‘Point & Click’ interface with PCB image display. Additionally, our PillarPAD offline package allows the operator to produce programs independently from the machine using Gerber data.
