Altus Announce New Partnership with Trailblazing Soldering Systems Manufacturer

Dec 22, 2020

Altus’ partnership portfolio continues to strengthen in 2020 with the announcement of a new agreement to distribute and support equipment from Inertec. With over 1,300 soldering systems installed worldwide, Inertec is one of the leading companies to develop and manufacture innovative soldering technologies. This new relationship will further enhance Altus’ vision to provide full turnkey solutions to customers in the UK and Ireland.

Turnkey manufacturing is growing in importance in the electronics sector due to its efficiency, reliability and cost-effectiveness. By adding Inertec to their selective soldering solutions Altus can provide its customers with further systems to enhance their complete manufacturing functions and take advantage of the most innovative technology available on the marketplace.

Joe Booth- CEO, Altus Group said: ‘’Altus has been looking for the correct partner for the selective soldering process for some time and so we are extremely pleased to announce that we have partnered with Inertec. This will mean bringing their top-quality hardware to our customers and providing the level of support needed for conventional assembly automation projects.

“With Cencorp’s flexible and effective depaneling solutions already in our range, and the growing number of odd form placement enquiries, we are pleased to be able to provide a full turnkey solution to our customers from placement, soldering inspection and handling.

“We are one of very few partners with the fire power and knowledge across the entire conventional automation process, experience that will be invaluable to our customers.’’

With Inertec now on board, Altus has further increased its technology offering and can provide systems to meet all electronics’ production requirements, from batch through to fully automated solutions. Inertec’s CUBE.460 system is one system that will be beneficial for batch selective soldering.

The new entry-level CUBE.460 soldering system has been designed as a production cell for small and medium-sized batches. Thanks to a loading shuttle, THT assembly can be performed directly on the machine, significantly improving quality compared to manual soldering. As batches become larger the CUBE Inline + then becomes a viable option, incorporating the very same technology capabilities but with increased throughput capabilities.

The simplified graphical programming allows for quick entry into selective soldering technology. The systems also includes many of the professional functions and proven technology benefits from larger systems, for example, process monitoring or bus-capable DC servimotors.

CUBE.460 includes various soldering nozzles and variable soldering angles to enable the execution of difficult layouts with extremely small clearances. The system uses optimal conditions for each joint to be formed to ensure excellent results. Control of the system takes place via intuitively operable software with optimised visualisation which also features all the required conveniences for programming.
