Speedline Technologies announced Pb-free enhancements for its Electrovert Econopak Gold Wave Soldering Systems. Designed to provide medium volume electronics manufacturers with the utmost benefit, efficiency and versatility, all Econopak Gold systems ship Pb-free process ready, said Richard Burke, Product Manager for Wave Soldering Equipment at Speedline.

The Econopak Gold system is a compact, economical wave soldering solution offering a host of performance refinements and available features. The release of both the UltraFill Nozzles and a Quick Change Solder Pot enhance its Pb-free capabilities.

The UltraFill Nozzles are 40 percent wider than the traditional tin/lead nozzle. Their design and placement mean less superheat is required to reflow solder joints in the second wave. Significant benefits include improved hole fill, bridge defect reduction and reduced dross formation. The nozzles are available in Melonite Corrosion Resistant Stainless Steel or Titanium material.

An optional Nitrogen shroud encompasses the UltraFill Nozzles in the pot. It allows for air or nitrogen operation, and its lift design ensures ease of maintenance and dedrossing without the need for change or removal.

Speedline added that the Econopak Gold's Quick Change Solder Pot allows for the easy switch between two alloys such as tin/lead and PB-free solders. This results in a significant labor savings versus a manual changeover, added the company. The unit includes a second solder pot with motors, pumps, flow ducts, nozzle and 2 trolleys.

The Pb-free ready Econopak Gold platform remains highly flexible and can be fitted with various features, including nitrogen inerting, convection pre-heating, Rotary chip wave, gas knife de-bridging technology, and alternate fluxing options. It processes boards up to 400mm and comes standard with 1.2m of preheat.
