RPS Partners with South-Tek Systems

RPS Partners with South-Tek Systems
New Partnership Provides Customers with an Optional Nitrogen Generation System

RPS Automation, LLC, a manufacturer of automated precision soldering equipment for electronics assembly and manufacturing, is pleased to announce a partnership with South-Tek Systems, LLC. South-Tek Systems specializes in the design and manufacture of Nitrogen Gas Generation Systems. The company provides Nitrogen generation technology that is safe, flexible, reliable, and cost effective.

South-Tek develops each system with the use of PSA (pressure swing absorption) or membrane separation technology in order to deliver the most efficient results within each N2 application.

This partnership allows RPS to offer full turn-key systems for selective soldering and lead tinning services. Other South-Tek Systems applications range from automotive and electronics manufacturing, the oil and gas industry, power plants, water treatment facilities, heat treating and metal working, laser cutting, and medical device manufacturing.

Although alternatives to a generator will still exist, including one with an RPS Selective Soldering purchase can reduce costs associated with Nitrogen by more than 85%.

"Having a system where Nitrogen is generated on site can hugely reduce gas costs and insure consistence in purity providing for increased performance and throughput. This partnership with South-Tek allows RPS to provide more efficient , streamline processes that our customers are looking for," said Reid Henry, Executive Vice President, RPS Automation.

South-Tek Systems has been in business for more than 15 years out of Wilmington, NC. Like RPS, South- Tek Systems is very proud to say that their products are made in the USA. The only generation provider to do so in the USA, South-Tek performs purity and performance certification testing before each machine leaves its facility. As an OEM for RPS, South-Tek will provide custom RPS-fitted generators that will maintain the look and feel of RPS equipment. South-Tek honors a full 2 year warranty on their products and will uphold responsibility for any technical support and system maintenance on generators in the field.
