Testimonials

Here's what our customers are saying about RPS Automation.


"We have a unique application where we adapted the RPS FRX soldering system to a rework station, and the RPS team was instrumental in helping us develop a process that works. I have been in the industry for over 40 years, and the level of customer support and technical service these guys have offered exceeds all my expectations."

 

DAN PEREIRA, Quality / Manufacturing Engineer
Altair Advanced Industries

 

"We were new to selective soldering, but using the Rhythm Selective System has been easy. Programming takes just a few minutes and the through-hole soldering quality surpasses anything we could ever achieve with hand soldering or wave soldering."

WALT MARKOWSKI, Manufacturing Supervisor
Practical Technologies, Inc.

 

"We selected the Rhythm Selective Soldering Machine over several European systems. RPS showed the expertise and the commitment to meet our high throughput, high flexibility requirements. The Rhythm is a great addition to our production environment.”

MIGUEL SANGABRIEL, Engineering Manager
Saturn Electronics & Engineering

 

“The versatility of the Rhythm is phenomenal. Our products range from simple after-market automotive to complex aerospace and military products. We’ve ran PCBs from .032” through .100” thick with no problems. Changeover is a breeze.”

SHANNON DUFFY, Manufacturing Manager
Circle Prime

 

RPS Selective Soldering Systems help us reallocate full-time employees and eliminate the time, headache and expense of wave processing. The reliability and precision of the Opus System and the responsiveness of RPS made it easy to justify a second system."

MARIO SCIBERRAS, President & CEO
Saline Lectronics

 

"The Opus Selective Soldering System greatly reduces the labor content of our manufacturing process and makes us more competitive. It also allows us to reduce manufacturing lead-times and, due to the reduction of human error, we have increased production quality."

JOHN BOSTON , MANAGING DIRECTOR
CIL

 

“We undertook a rigorous selection process to determine the best selective soldering system for our factory, including a 30 day production trial of two leading manufacturers. The RPS Rhythm System was the winner.”

DARYL FERYANCE, Manufacturing Engineering Leader
Creation Technologies

 

“The Rhythm is a top quality product and a real differentiator for us. It has increased productivity, reduced labor costs, and improved PCB thru-hole manufacturing efficiency. Most importantly, RPS goes the extra mile to make sure we succeed."

ERIC ELSE, CEO/President
EI Microcircuits

 

“From the initial install we have received great support from the RPS staff to get acquainted with our new system. They have performed second to none and have been there with us to ensure that we are running in “tip top” shape.”

Dan Steffler, Mfg. Process Specialist
Guardian Telecom

 

“We are a contract manufacturer and we can't believe how many different boards we can run through the system. The machine has been irreplaceable for our through-hole soldering needs.”

WALT MARKOWSKI, Manufacturing Supervisor
Practical Technologies, Inc.

 

"RPS is a real partner in our manufacturing success. They developed a unique dual adjustable nozzle configuration just for us. This is a high volume production line and the Rhythm system is exceeding expectations."

HUMBERTO OCHOA, Production Manager
Saturn Electronics & Engineering

 

“The Rhythm Selective Soldering System can be programmed in minutes to handle basic to complex through-hole soldering. At the heart of the Rhythm is the solder management system, designed for lead and lead-free applications, it features servo motor motion control for speed, accuracy and repeatability.”

SHANNON DUFFY, Manufacturing Manager
Circle Prime

 

"The use of the Opus Selective Soldering System results in dramatic labor savings. One product that took four full time operators now takes just one person; the operator needs just 5 minutes to set up the machine and, while it is running, the same operator can perform the next function down the line."

JOHN BOSTON , MANAGING DIRECTOR
CIL

 

“CamConductor 2.0 is great addition to the RPS Selective Soldering offering. We see a number of valuable new features and enhancements to a programming software product that was already simple, easy to learn, and easy to use.“

ERIC ELSE, CEO/President
EI Microcircuits

 

“The Opus III Selective Soldering System has allowed us to reputably deliver product to our customers with consistent high quality solder joints. It has allowed us to tackle builds with complicated assemblies where we were having to hand solder in the past.”
