Air-powered dispensing systems use controlled pulses of air pressure to dispense solder paste from syringe reservoirs in uniform amounts.
Air-powered dispensing equipment comes in many shapes and sizes. Each and every unit has at least two characteristics in common with all the rest: air pressure regulation and dispense cycle control.
In this paper, EFD explains the most critical variables affecting air-powered dispensing of solder pastes and shows how to manage those variables to your advantage.
In minutes Unisoft ProntoPLACE software translates CAD or Gerber and Bill of Materials (BOM) files into real reference designators, X/Y body centers, Theta rotation, part numbers, etc. This data is then used by Process Engineers to program their SMT and Thru-hole Automatic Assembly Equipment.
ProntoPLACE programs popular surface mount (SMT) placement, through-hole (THT) insertion and glue dispensing machines. Universal, Fuji, Mydata, Siemens, Panasonic, Philips, Contact Systems (CS400, 3, C5 series, etc.), Camelot, Quad assembly and others are supported. ProntoPLACE also creates process sheets for assembly aids and to document your assembly process. ProntoPLACE is reasonably priced and available for rental or purchase.

BEST Instructors have put to video demonstrations of common hand soldering skills. These are not designed to be in place of live one on one training where repetitive skills and subsequent one on one feedback is given. Rather they are quick refreshers designed to be viewed if a specific skill has not been practiced in a while.
