Manual loading with workpiece carriers outside the process chamber
The CondensoXM is loaded manually from the outside. The workpiece carrier is advanced to the loading/discharge zone along an extended conveyor axis to this end. The operator can then conveniently insert or remove the workpiece carrier. This is above all helpful for large, heavy PCBs. The maximum dimensions of the goods to be soldered are 650 x 650 x 95 mm. The workpiece carrier can be equipped with up to 6 lanes and has a fixed side-panel which serves as a starting point, as well as five adjustable crosspieces.
PCBs are transported strictly horizontally through the soldering system. The PCB is stationary during the vapor process. In this way, components cannot be shifted out of place while the solder is molten. This significant disadvantage of conventional vapor phase soldering systems, for which continuous vertical motion of the PCB is required during soldering, has been eliminated as a result. The scrap rate is reduced – along with your costs.
The advantages at a glance:
- Horizontal conveyor
- The PCBs are stationary during the entire process.
- A high-speed handling system is available as an option.
