LeeMAH Electronics Installs New Wave Soldering Machine to Increase Throughput712370

LeeMAH Electronics have installed a new Electrovert VectraES wave soldering machine in manufacturing facility in Texas to replace the existing selective soldering system. This decision follows a deep freeze that burst a pipe at the facility. This natural disaster was turned into an opportunity to rearrange the production floor for better manufacturing process flow. The new in-line wave soldering machine allows for much higher throughput at a better overall cost to LeeMAH to keep up with their increasing production demand.

An added benefit is that the new wave machine allowed LeeMAH to switch to a new solder alloy. With the clear return on investment realized at the Texas plant, the plan is to also have the California plant switch over to the new solder alloy as well.

“The new VectraES was up running great, very quickly with no issues at all. The in-line wave soldering machine has easily been able to keep up with production and results in more consistent soldering throughout the entire lot”, said Bob Smith, LeeMAH Plant Manager.

LeeMAH Electronics Team members with their new VectraES wave soldering machine. The Electrovert® VectraES™ wave soldering machine is designed for low-to-medium mass board assemblies in a high volume production soldering environment that requires fast changeover, process flexibility, and system reliability.

The VectraES with its extensive list of features utilize technologies that provide complete process flexibility and process control. Features such as ServoJet™ fluxing, forced convection preheat, and UltraFill™ solder nozzles provide board assemblers the capability to process the most difficult soldering applications in the most demanding environments. A new Flux Flow Monitor provides an accurate method of verifying repeatability of the flux flow rate and flux volume on a board-to-board basis.
