ePAK International Purchases Hentec/RPS Pulsar Solderability Test System

Oct 25, 2021

Pulsar solderability test system determines how well molten solder will wet on solderable surfaces of electronic components.

Newman Lake, WA (October 26, 2021) – Hentec Industries/RPS Automation, a leading manufacturer of selective soldering, lead tinning and solderability test equipment, is pleased to announce that ePAK International has purchased a Pulsar solderability system. The Pulsar utilizes the highly proven dip-and-look test method that is a qualitative type test performed by comparative analysis after specimens are dipped in a bath of flux and molten solder.  An advantage of the dip-and-look method is since it is based on comparative analysis it can be performed rapidly by shop floor personnel with minimal training as well as requiring significantly lower capital investment then a wetting balance test system.  The Pulsar solderability test system complies with all applicable solderability test standards including MIL-STD-883 Method 2003, IPC J-STD-002 and MIL-STD-202 Method 208.
