Designed to meet the needs of the small batch manufacturer who requires high levels of production flexibility, our latest entry-level system offers uncompromised selective soldering quality at a very low cost.
The Jade MKII is a hand load system, incorporating a universally adjustable tooling carrier capable of accommodating PCB's or pallets up to 457 x 508mm.
Our new generation patented drop-jet design fluxer offers quick and effective flushing of the pressurised flux chamber. This helps to keep
maintenance levels to a minimum whilst enabling use of higher solids content fluxes as well as water soluble fluxes.
As part of the entry level philosophy for this system, a newly designed 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-1 nozzle design or custom specialised nozzles, incorporating patented spiral solder return to bath technology offering reduced solder balling potential.
As with more sophisticated Pillarhouse systems, the soldering process is enhanced by an inerted hot Nitrogen curtain which provides an inert atmosphere for the soldering process and also assists in the prevention of oxidation. This process provides a local pre-heat 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, as illustrated below.
Additionally, our optional PillarPAD offline package allows the operator to produce programs independently from the machine using Gerber data.
