ACE Consigns Third Selective Soldering Machine to RIT


Reading time ( words)

ACE Production Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of selective soldering systems, is pleased to consign its third KISS-102 selective soldering system to the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York. 

The new KISS-102 selective soldering system will be installed in the Center for Electronics Manufacturing & Assembly (CEMA) laboratory a unique one of a kind facility designed to educate students and provide training and applied research capability to the electronics industry.

“We have had tremendous success with the KISS-102 selective soldering systems,” said Jeff Lonneville, CEMA Lab manager. “We especially like the click-and-drag operation of the new SWAK-OS software because it’s so easy to click on the fluxing or soldering function without having to move the axis. Our new machine is so much faster, the machine movements are much smoother and the PCB location rails are more robust. This will be a great tool to teach future engineers who will be graduating from our programs.”

“Our undergraduate and graduate students will utilize the KISS-102 to advance their academic pursuits and to refine their process development, design verification and manufacturing process skills as part of the curriculum in our CEMA lab,” stated S. Manian Ramkumar, Ph.D., director of CEMA and Professor and chair of the Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology (MMET) Department. “ACE has fully supported CEMA and its mission for several years and we look forward to our continued relationship with ACE long into the future.”

In addition to providing a career focused education, the RIT CEMA laboratory is chartered with providing technical assistance to companies throughout the United States and across the globe. CEMA is located within the MMET department housed in the College of Applied Science and Technology at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
