Nordson Corporation NDSN recently introduced new SELECT Synchro selective soldering. The product is appropriate for high-volume printed circuit board (PCB) assembly applications.
According to the company, SELECT Synchro selective soldering utilizes a unique synchronous motion to offer better cost-of-ownership. It provides flexibility for electronics manufacturers and improves throughput by 20-40%.
The smart soldering system is capable of superseding the available selective soldering operations to offer better yield and to save space for many through-hole. It can help electronics manufacturers by offering faster, more flexible, and more efficient operations compared with the traditional selective soldering solutions.
The steps in the SELECT Synchro system include fluxing, pre-heating and soldering and the process takes place on the board moving at a constant speed. The different-sized nozzles and numerous solder pots provide flexibility with solder quantities, solder alloys, and board designs. All the fluxing and soldering steps take place while the board is in motion.
The flux and solder applicators travel through the equipment to deliver synchronous-motion selective soldering. In the process, they are programmed to follow and treat boards, thus improving output, and cost-of-ownership, while still accommodating long boards as large as 680 x 2500 mm.

“People are amazed by the technology of synchronous soldering. By moving the target board as well as the flux and soldering applicators, the operations are sped up, and the system is reduced in size," said Florian Strohmayer, the product line manager of Nordson Electronics Solutions. In terms of throughput, the SELECT Synchro concept can replace wave soldering equipment while increasing the soldering quality and reducing the cost of ownership.”
