Stable reflow soldering process thanks to adjustable heat flow

The VisionXP+ convection soldering system ensures optimum heat transfer Heating zones which can be regulated separately, a reproducible temperature profile, stable processes at the lowest T, homogenous heat input via special nozzle holes and low maintenance costs: the VisionXP+ convection soldering system by Rehm Thermal Systems provides the basis for the best soldering results with its optimum heat transfer properties, even if the electronic components have different requirements with regard to your production process. In the VisionXP+, the nozzle hole fields, which have a special geometry, ensure an even flow…

Seamless traceability of machine data

Hermes networking possible with Rehm systems – no data loss at the outlet due to Separo separation module In Greek mythology, the messenger of the gods, Hermes, carries the messages of the gods to mortals. With his quick and clever way he moves freely between the two worlds. No wonder that his name was chosen for a new interface communication: “The Hermes Standard”. It ensures that important assembly information is transmitted reliably, spontaneously, easily and completely from machine to machine and to higher-level systems – regardless of the machine’s manufacturer.…

Selective Conformal Coating made easy

ViCON Protecto system software specially designed to meet the needs of dispensing and coating systems Forward-looking electronics manufacturing is characterised, among other things, by the fact that the individual machines – and therefore the entire manufacturing process – are networked. This not only enables efficient work, but also creates transparency and a seamless traceability of data and process flows. With the ViCON system software, Rehm Thermal Systems has developed a user interface that enables the user to work intuitively. ViCON has now been redesigned for the special requirements of the…

Straightness measurement integrated into the production process

Lager gauge operating in real time assures 100 percent inspection in a fully automatic process. At the TUBE 2020 trade show, sema is going to unveil its new STRAIGHTNESS CHECK X-LINE gauge for inline laser-optical measurement of the straightness of bars and tubes. The new system enables 100 percent inspection without slowing the production cycle. Thanks to its modular design it can be custom-configured to meet an extraordinarily wide range of requirements and applications. STRAIGHTNESS CHECK X-LINE measures the straightness deviation in mm/m over the complete length of the product.…

Lasers measure the complete geometry of tube ends

In-line laser measurement captures the contour of the entire cross section as well as the form of tube ends At Tube 2020 in Düsseldorf, LAP is premiering the new TUBE END CHECK measuring system for capturing the geometry of tube ends. Using sensors mounted on a robot arm, it measures the entire geometry of each tube end in-line and in time with production, making it possible to check each individual tube instead of doing spot checks. TUBE END CHECK is a modular system that can be configured to meet the…

Process observation using sight glass devices

Process observation using sight glass devices Sight glass devices allow detailed observation of processes without requiring complex and often expensive sensor systems. In this article, we explain some common types of sight glasses, their advantages and disadvantages, as well as some important criteria for design and selection. Central component of a sight glass device is a chemically and physically highly resistant glass, in most cases tempered borosilicate glass. If the operating temperature is above the nominally allowable 280 °C, a mica disc can be used to improve the resiliency of…
