Ant-i2 Offline Selective Soldering Machine


High quality soldering, High production, Low investment – This is Ant-i2.


Machine working conceptMachine working concept:

●  PCB is moved by X/Y table with servo motor, Solder pot is moved in Z with servo motor, drop jet flux is moved in Z with aircylinder.

●  Standard equip two Drop jet fluxer, bottom preheating, selective solder pot,two wave tunnel & nozzle, two inline N2 heater, auto wave height calibration, live-on camera, Windows 10 English software.


Solder It

Solder it” is windows10 based software.  With board scanned picture or Gerber file,  “POINT AND CLICK” to “draw and drag” motion path easily, make the initial programming in less than 10 minutes.

Path programming :

Point and Click“Point and Click”

● to draw path with scanned picture as background, easiest way for path programming.

Solder path editingSolder path editing:

● Moving speed, Z height, wave height, Dwell time, wave slope speed etc are editable, get max flexibility to fit different type of components on the board. Empth move time, site working time, total cycle time are estimated once path programming finished. Easy for balance production line.

Support Pallet functionSupport Pallet function:

● Only need to program one board on pallet, then input X/Y pinch to array the same programming. Also can choose which board no need to solder on the pallet.

Material database systemMaterial database system :

● Customer can save their flux information, solder information, fluxer nozzle information, solder nozzle information to the database. And when making the programming for board, engineer can choose which material used in this board.  So a full programming for board will not only include motion information like path, speed, pasue time, Z height, dwell time, wave, temperature etc, it will also include what flux used, what solder used, which fluxer nozzle and which solder nozzle used. This will be helpful for repeating soldering quality.

Maintenance & replacement assisting functionMaintenance & replacement assisting function:

● we know how important the maintenance for a selective soldering machine. In the software, we list all maintenance job, time taking, comsumable parts life and remain life, etc. It can export to excel list, engineer can check what parts need to replace in next 3 month or 6 months, in this way to they can prepare everything in advance.

Wise assignmentWise assignment :

● contains every basic feature which are used to prepare machine before starting production,including Auto Home,Sensor and Axis Status,Auto Wave Height Calibration,Auto Solder Fill-up and Navigation for position calibration.

Log functionLog function :

● Can set 3 level different users. All logs will be saved and customer can check who use the machine and what happen.

Flx-DropJet● Flx-DropJet : Standard equipped with drop jet valve from  Germanny originally, which can meet dia 2mm flux  dot dimension.

Two sets drop jet fluxer:  Software can choose to use one of them or use both together (so to fluxing for two same boards at same time, double the production)

One set Titanium: soldering pot, 100% capable for lead free  application. With temperature control, solder level alarm function.

Two individual wave tunnels: can choose to use only one of them to solder big board (max) Or use both together to solder two same boards parallely (max    ) and double the production.

Two individual N2 direct heating system is standard equipped, enhance the wetting ability for lead free  sodlering.

Sod-ProcMoni Sod-ProcMoni: Without open machine’s door, operator can see soldering process in real time.
Pre-BPREPre-BPRE: Bottom preheating zone, before soldering PCB will move  here to heat up setting time under setting temperature.
Sod-WetNoz Sod-WetNoz: Standard equipped with wet nozzle for customer’s universal applicaiton. Can also design solder nozzle according cusotmer’s application.
