RPS Automation Meets the Global Demand for Lead Tinning Capabilities
As the International Market for Lead Tinning Increases, the Anthem System Offers an Excellent Solution
SPOKANE VALLEY, WA –May 18th, 2015– RPS Automation LLC has begun production of three Anthem Lead Tinning Systems in the wake of the 2015 IPC APEX EXPO. Global Engineering and Esterline Leach International are new customers to RPS Automation and chose their Anthem model over many other options as their first Lead Tinning Systems, while Plexus Peneng is continuing their patronage to RPS with this recent purchase. These consecutive orders show the growing demand for Lead Tinning capabilities and demonstrate RPS Automation’s ability to meet them.
RPS’ Lead Tinning Systems are automated, hands-free robotic platforms designed to tin component leads for re-conditioning and re-tinning applications, including high reliability and military application. For over 20 years, RPS Automation has provided leadership in meeting industry standards for the health and safety of electronic systems throughout their entire product line. As pioneers of the Lead Tinning movement, RPS is excited to continue to offer the capabilities and configurations of their systems to customers, both domestic and internationally.
