Pune, Delhi/India, 5 and 7 June 2019
Last week the two metropolises in the center and north of India were the third and fourth stops at this year's Ersa Technology Days India. Ersa Area Sales Managers Christian Ott and Dietmar Wolpert welcomed more than 40 participants at each location together with the local Sales & Service Partner Bergen Industries. They had prepared an exciting program comprising technology presentations, live broadcasts from the Ersa Application Center in Wertheim and hands-on sessions.
In his part, Christian Ott focused on layout guidelines for wave and selective soldering as well as high-volume applications in selective soldering. His presentations were followed by the interactive live machine demos from the Wertheim Application Centre. As was already the case in the two events that took place in April in the southern Indian metropolises of Chennai and Bangalore, the use of nitrogen for wave soldering played a major role in conversations and technical discussions. "Increasing quality demands and cost pressure are leading to a change from the use of atmospheric systems to full tunnel systems. Even during the breaks, the short ROI of an Ersa N2 system was discussion topic no. 1," says Christian Ott.
In the second half, everything revolved around rework soldering. In addition to working with dip and print stencils, the focus was on the flexibility of the Ersa rework systems. One example is the Ersa HR 600/2, where the operator has the choice to control the individual steps by himself or to combine them to automated processes.
The finale of the two exciting and informative days in northern India was almost traditionally the hands-on session. As in the last two years, an HR 600/2 rework system was on site for this purpose.
Area Sales Manager Christian Ott draws a positive conclusion: “This transfer of know-how and exchange of experience is very well appreciated by our customers.” “But we as suppliers also value these days,” Area Sales Manager Dietmar Wolpert adds, “because both sides benefit enormously. So we will certainly be back next year!”
