ULTIMA TR2 Benchtop Selective Soldering Machine

The unique and innovative design of the ULTIMA TR2 selective soldering system brings features and performance to the benchtop that, until now, could only be found in equipment twice the size and twice the cost. The TR2 includes a high-precision PCB handling system fully programmable in the X, Y, and Z axes, a compact solder pot and pump assembly with extremely responsive, programmable flow control, and a wave nozzle with integral nitrogen preheat; features that guarantee fast, consistent, high-quality soldering of through-hole components to SMT boards.

Details

Highly Responsive Solder Pump for Precise Wave Control
This close-up shows the precision and uniformity of the wave shape as the molten solder flows out of the top of the nozzle. The TR2's highly responsive solder pump allows precise and virtually instantaneous control of 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, 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 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 TR2'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 low solder level alarm and an automatic 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 offline program creation on any PC or laptop. 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. Soldering functions can be defined as lines or points using an easy to use visual editor. Programs are then downloaded to the system via USB connection. Programs created for the ULTIMA TR2 are also easily converted to selective fluxing programs that can also be downloaded to the ULTIMA SP selective fluxing unit.
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 wave coverage area, based on the nozzle size selected for the individual lines and points.
Editable Parameters for Complete Control of All 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 TR2 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 TR2 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.
Selective Fluxing System Supports Up to 3 TR2s
The ULTIMA SP selective fluxing system, (available as an accessory and shown here beside an ULTIMA TR2), utilizes a high-precision, pressurized air atomization nozzle and an X-Y drive mechanism with programmable speed to provide highly controllable fluxing in support of up to three ULTIMA TR2 selective soldering systems.
