Industries grow and change over time, including that of selective soldering - and the selective soldering market has changed drastically since the days when the technology was first adopted. Today, selective soldering industry trends show that it continues to grow, with many recent developments that will lead to future developments, shaping the course of the selective soldering industry.
Here are some select trends in the global selective soldering market.
While the equipment that one chooses for selective soldering and consumables - the solder itself, the flux and so on - are certainly important, an aspect of selective soldering that cannot be overlooked is calibration. Proper calibration of selective soldering equipment is vital, as an uncalibrated soldering machine will not produce the solder connections it is supposed to.
RPS Automation is proud to announce the Vector 460 Selective Soldering Machine, which promises to be a new standard in what can be expected from a selective soldering system. The Vector 460 offers far more features than are otherwise possible in a compact system, as the 460 has been engineered to deliver incredible performance in a space-saving form-factor soldering system.
The electronics industry has a number of high-profile trade shows, and while CES might get more press, it's the IPC APEX Expo 2018 that will give insiders a glimpse of the future. The IPC APEX Expo is the trade show for the Association Connecting Electronics Industries, formerly the Institute for Printed Circuits, and is the trade association for manufacturers of electronics manufacturing machinery.
This is where the future of electronics manufacturing will be shown first, and RPS Automation will be there!
