Wave Soldering Systems utilize lead-free upgrades.
August 12, 2005 - Electrovert EconoPak Gold®, Electra®, and Vectra® Wave Soldering Systems may be fitted with UltraFillâ„˘ Nozzle, designed to increase contact length and dwell time. Nozzle also reduces temperature drop so that minimal superheat is needed to reflow solder joints in second wave. Also available, Quick Change Solder Pot provides capability to switch between 2 alloys. It includes second solder pot with motors, pumps, flow ducts, nozzle, and 2 trolleys.

Speedline Technologies Announces Lead-Free Upgrades for Electrovert Wave Soldering Systems
FRANKLIN, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, August 8, 2005 â€“ Speedline Technologies has announced several important lead-free upgrades for its line of Electrovert Wave Soldering Systems for electronics manufacturers.
â€śThe upgrades, which include the new UltraFillâ„˘ Nozzle and Quick Change Solder Pot, deliver powerful new capabilities and productivity improvements to electronics manufacturers seeking efficient and cost-effective solutions in their transition to lead-free operations,â€ť said Richard Burke, Speedline Technologies, Product Manager, Electrovert Products.
Forty percent wider than the traditional tin/lead nozzle, the new UltraFill Nozzle increases both contact length and dwell time. The nozzles are placed closer together to reduce the temperature drop between the nozzles â€“ so that less superheat is needed to reflow solder joints in the second wave. As a result, hole fill is improved and bridging is reduced. Moreover, thereâ€™s no requirement to slow the conveyor and dross generation is reduced. The nozzles are available in Melonite Corrosion Resistant Stainless Steel or Titanium Material designs.
An optional Nitrogen shroud is available for use with the UltraFill Nozzle. The shroud allows for either air or nitrogen operation, as determined by the desired recipe, without the need to change nozzles. The shroud both encompasses the nozzles in the pot and reduces dross formation in nitrogen environments. The shroud lifts for easy maintenance and dedrossing â€“ without nozzle removal.
The Quick Change Solder Pot provides the capability to easily switch between two alloys, such as between tin/lead and lead-free solders â€“ for significant labor savings versus a traditional manual changeover. The unit includes a second solder pot with motors, pumps, flow ducts, nozzle and 2 trolleys.
Both upgrades are available as an option on new or existing, installed Electrovert EconoPak Gold®, Electra®, and Vectra® Wave Soldering Systems.
Other available upgrades, compatible with a variety of new or installed Electrovert systems, include:
â€˘ High Velocity Convention (HVC) Topside Preheater, designed for even topside preheating and tighter Delta Tâ€™s across the board;
â€˘ Reciprocating Spray Fluxing Technology, featuring UltraSpray® technology for precise flux deposition, improved through-hole penetration and low maintenance requirements;
â€˘ Vectaheat Bottomside Preheater, providing efficient, even high thermal mass heating.
All upgrades are available immediately from Speedline distributors and representatives. For additional information, contact Speedline Technologies at 1-508-520-0083 or visit http://www.speedlinetech.com.
