Lead Tinning - Solderability Test Equipment - Solder Dip Pots - Steam Age Test Equipment
Solderability Test Equipment
Robotic Process Systems is one of the world leaders in the sale of Solderability Test Equipment. RPS manufactures dip and look testers, low volume dipping systems, rotary dip testers for PWBs and steam aging equipment. The ANSI J specifications have changed some of the requirements of solderability testing, but RPS equipment is capable of doing all forms of testing whether it be ANSI J or MIL-SPEC 202 method 208.
The RPS PRELUDE is a microprocessor-controlled solderability test system that meets MIL-STD-202, method 208/MILSTD-2000 with speed and precision. All process parameters are set digitally. The microprocessor is capable of storing 8 different processes in memory for fully automatic operation. These process parameters include: flux and solder emersion and immersion speed, solder, flux and traverse dwell times, number of cycles required and solder temperature. The RPS 202TL also has a calibrated depth gage that permits adjustments to 0.001" over the flux and solder pots.
A wide range of tooling for different parts is available and we can also offer a rotary had for QFP type parts.
Testing of Pre-Tinned and Steam-Aged Components for Various
Specifications, including Military Standards
A larger model, the RPS 202TL-2™ features 2 solder pots to perform such applications as burning off gold coatings in the first pot, then tinning in the second.
A custom 360 Degree rotary head is available as an option for QFP packages. Custom tools can be supplied for your application. Call us for further information.
The precision steam aging systems in the RPS ST Family™ are specifically designed to meet military and commercial Hi-Rel specifications (MIL-STD 202, Method 208 and others) for artificial aging of all electronic components and circuit boards, including high density, discrete components. They offer complete monitoring and control of steam or water temperature and feature automatic timing of the test duration. The large steam chamber is designed so that steam may be safely vented. The ST-2D featured 3 individually timed, ESD protected drawers with a unique closure mechanism that reduces steam escapement during drawer removal.
Constructed of treated stainless steel, these steam agers are virtually unaffected by de-ionized or distilled water. Elapsed time and cycle time are indicated digitally. The cycle timer will not time the cycle unless temperature is within process parameters. The unit automatically shuts down at the end of the pre-programmed cycle. The cover is designed so that steam is condensed and channeled to the side. Condensation is kept away from components.
New touchscreen LCD controller allows easy, visible access for programming and alarm status.
We at RPS pride ourselves on the quality of our solder pots, backed by a 1-year warranty. Our pots are constructed of heavy gauge stainless steel, ceramic insulation, and the best heaters available. This combined with our heater rail construction to help the pot keep its shape means many years of trouble-free operation. Most of our solder pots are also available with optional automatic dross wiping mechanisms, and nitrogen inerting.
