Details

Large Board Holder and Precision X-Y-Z Drive Mechanism
The ULTIMA NEO-L features an extra-large PCB holder and spacious work envelope for fluxing and soldering boards up to 18" x 15" (460 mm x 380 mm) in a single pass. The ultra-fine resolution X-Y-Z axis drive mechanism boasts a positional accuracy of ±0.004" (±0.1 mm) and can travel at programmable speeds from as slow as 0.004"/sec (while soldering) to as fast as 15.75"/sec (between points).
Highly Responsive Solder Pump for Precise Control of Miniature Wave
This close-up shows the precision and uniformity of the wave shape as the molten solder flows out of the top of the nozzle in the ULTIMA NEO-L selective soldering machine. The ULTIMA NEO-L's highly responsive solder pump allows precise and virtually instantaneous control of miniature wave height and solder volume by varying the pump speed (rpm) and acceleration/deceleration (rpm/s). To prevent oxidation, an exclusive nitrogen micro-heater, controllable to 400°C, is located within the hood surrounding the wave nozzle. Close proximity of the heater to the nozzle ensures a stable wave temperature as nitrogen flows through the hood and shrouds the molten solder joint.
Solder Connectors with Parallel Rows of Pins in a Single Pass
For higher throughput, tandem rows of multiple leads can be soldered in a single pass, provided that the use of a nozzle with a sufficiently large I.D. or width is used. Custom rectangular-shaped wave nozzles are also available upon special request. For assistance in selecting the proper nozzle size and shape for your selective soldering application, please submit a PCB sample to your Manncorp sales or customer service representative.
Wide Variety of Quick-Change Nozzles Available
A wide range of round-shaped nozzles are available with inside diameters from 2.5 mm (0. 1") to 20 mm (0.79"). The highly-polished stainless steel surface allows smooth laminar flow of the wave over the nozzle surface for highly-stable wave form and extremely stable wave temperature. The inside diameter of the nozzle controls the overall diameter of the wave. The optimum nozzle size for a particular selective soldering application is a function of the area to be soldered, the proximity of adjacent components, and the desired throughput.
Compact Solder Pot Slides In and Out for Easy Maintenance
The ULTIMA NEO-L's unique compact design allows the 16 kg solder pot and pump module to remain stationary during operation while the programmable PCB positioner moves the board over the wave nozzle in the X, Y, and Z axes. The module is easily accessible for loading of bars or pellets and slides in and out in seconds for routine maintenance. A larger 32 kg pot, a low solder level alarm and an automatic wire solder feeder are available as options.
View and Record Live Video of Soldering Operations
An optional high-definition witness camera with adjustable LED lighting, located below the PCB positioner and focused at the top of the nozzle, allows operators to view and record soldering operations in real-time.
Generate Program Data from PCB Scans or Gerber Data Import
The Windows®-compatible software accepts direct numeric data input for easy program creation either online or offline. Programs can also be created via Gerber data import or even scanned JPEG images of PCBs (as shown in this screen capture) with optional software. Selective soldering functions can be defined as lines or points using an easy to use visual editor. Programs created for soldering are automatically converted to selective fluxing data.
Wave Simulation Mode Checks Solder Coverage Area
After the soldering coordinates have been entered, a handy wave width simulation mode allows the user to check the miniature wave coverage area, based on the nozzle size selected for the individual lines and points.
Editable Parameters for Complete Control of All Selective Soldering Functions
Data entered via the visual editor or Gerber data import is automatically arranged in a tabular format (as shown in this screen capture). The powerful NEO-L software provides a wide variety of editable parameters for each soldering step that ensures perfect, repeatable soldering every time. Users can edit the default parameters for control of Z-axis dip height, preheat dwell, X-Y speed, pump flow (rpm), and acceleration/deceleration (rpm/s); parameters critical to the prevention of bridging, icicling, and other defects. The software also automatically calculates the amount of time required for the completion of each soldering program.
Easy Import and Conversion of Gerber Data Into Soldering Programs
When Gerber data is imported via the optional software, the PCB image is automatically drawn on the visual editor screen. From here, the user can easily select the pads to be soldered and can define them as individual points or convert selected groups of pads into continuous lines.
High-Precision Spray Fluxing
The precision spray nozzle used in the NEO-L can deliver either round or very thin linear spray patterns with a very small amount of liquid flux, keeping consumable costs low. Independent pressure controls for the integral flux reservoir and atomizer allow the user to regulate the volume and density of the spray jet and ensure a precise, uniform flux application.
Selective Fluxing Programs Automatically Generated from Soldering Data
Soldering coordinate data created for the ULTIMA NEO-L is automatically converted to selective fluxing programs by the ULTIMA Series software application.
