C250

Wave Solder Machine

Lead-Free Wave Machine Houses Smaller Solder Pot for Lower Solder Costs

The C250 wave solder machine combines low up-front equipment costs with long-term consumable and energy savings. Its solder pot capacity of just 100 kg (approximate weight for lead free solder) translates to a 66% reduction in stocking and refilling costs compared to larger pot systems, resulting in an annual savings on solder that could almost pay back the equipment cost.

The C250's space-saving footprint is just 2020 mm x 830 mm (79" x 33"). The system's adjustable, corrosion-resistant fiber finger conveyor opens to accommodate assemblies up to 250 mm (10") wide.

Available in either single or dual-wave configurations, the C250 wave solder machine comes equipped with everything needed for low volume production, including IR preheating and a corrosion-resistant, lead-free-ready solder pot that's guaranteed for 5 years.

Reduced Energy Consumption, Reduced Dross Formation

C250's high-efficiency heaters and small, 100 kg (220 lb approximate weight for lead free solder) solder pot considerably decrease start-up time for significant energy savings.

They also reduce oxidation and dross formation.

Single- or Dual-Wave Configuration

The C250 is supplied as standard in a single-wave configuration for conventional through-hole assemblies, but can also be purchased as a dual-wave system to solder surface mount and mixed technology boards as well.

Dual-wave technology often provides improved hole penetration and reduced bridging on difficult-to-solder boards of all technologies.

If necessary, the chip wave in dual-wave systems can easily be deactivated through the installation of a nozzle cover plate included with the dual-wave option.

Wave height control is dial-adjustable to a maximum height setting of 10 mm (.39").

The wave pump motor, with on/off control activated by optical board sensors on the conveyor, is protected by low temperature and overheat alarms.

Adjustable Fiber-Finger Conveyor and IR Preheater Allow Precise Lead-Free Profiling

The C250 wave soldering system includes a high-temperature, corrosion-resistant, fiber-finger conveyor system with variable speed up to 2 m/min (79"/min). Conveyor angle (3°-6°) and width are easily-adjustable to accommodate PCBs from 30 mm to 250 mm (1.2" to 10").

A chain-driven, pin-type inlet conveyor is included as standard and allows easy loading of assemblies and smooth transfer into the conveyor fingers.

After flux application, a 420 mm IR preheater uses stainless-steel sheath-type heaters to raise PCBs and components to manufacturers' recommended temperatures for proper activation of VOC-free fluxes and to prepare the assembly for lead-free soldering temperatures.

Now Available: Innovative Drum-Spray Fluxing System

A drum-spray fluxing mechanism, optional with C250 systems, combines the simplicity of a foam fluxer with the precision of a spray fluxing system. Its simple, innovative design is extremely easy to set up and maintain. The drum-spray precisely applies flux evenly as it passes over the rotating drum. This method has been shown to provide more uniform application and less flux waste.

Long-Life Cast Iron Solder Pot 

The corrosion-resistant, seamless cast iron solder pot resists corrosion from use of all-tin and tin-alloy solders during high-temperature lead-free processing. Its smaller capacity reduces upfront solder costs. The pot is guaranteed for 5 years.

The solder pot and wave assembly slide out from the rear of the unit onto an extendable platform and are braced by heavy-duty supporting legs during loading and maintenance.

Corrosion-Resistant, Low-Volume, Seamless Solder Pot
The C250 includes a specially-coated, seamless, cast-iron solder pot that includes a five-year replacement warranty. Supplied as standard in a single-wave configuration, the C250 is also available as a dual-wave system to accommodate both conventional and surface mount assemblies.

Solder Pot Handling System Allows Easy Loading and Maintenance
When the solder pot access panel on the rear of the unit is opened, the support legs (shown folded for storage at left) drop down and lock in place. The high-temperature, seamless solder pot and pump assembly can then slide out onto the access panel which now serves as a handy platform for easy loading and maintenance.

Choice of Foam Fluxer or Optional Innovative Drum-Spray Fluxing System
C250 systems include our standard foam fluxer, although our optional, unique drum-spray fluxer (shown above) is a very popular option. Drum-Spray Fluxing Technology applies flux in a thin vertical knife pattern across the full width of the board as it passes over the rotating drum. This method has been shown to provide more uniform application and less flux waste than other spray methods and is also easier, and less costly, to operate and maintain.

Corrosion-Resistant, Fiber Finger Conveyor and Pin-Type Input Mechanism
The C250 fiber-finger conveyor easily adjusts to accommodate boards from 30 mm to 250 mm (1.2" to 10") and will not be degraded by the high temperatures or corrosivity of lead-free solders. The chain-driven, pin-type inlet conveyor (included as standard) adjusts in unison with the finger conveyor and allows for easy loading of assemblies and smooth transfer into the fiber fingers.

High-Quality Construction Designed for Low Cost of Ownership and Easy Maintenance
The C Series lead-free wave soldering systems are designed to meet the reliability standards of the Japanese electronics market and are built to the highest standards of quality at our factory in Taiwan. As shown in this photo, all major system components are easily accessible for cleaning and maintenance through a single hinged upper panel. Dial-adjustable wave height and conveyor speed controls are located below the intuitive, LCD touch-panel user interface.

Stainless-Steel Sheath-Type IR Preheater for Flux Activation
After flux application, the C250's 420 mm standard PID-controlled IR preheater uses stainless-steel sheath-type heaters to raise PCBs and components to manufacturers' recommended temperatures for proper activation of VOC-free and preparation of the assembly for leaded or lead-free soldering temperatures.
