Also this year Kurtz Ersa showed product novelties at the Productronica and demonstrated with many soldering technologies its leading market position at the pulse of time. A new era in reflow is represented by the HOTFLOW THREE. With the SMART CONVECTIONPOWER UNIT, SCPU® for short, it has a unique selling point in the industry. This exclusively developed motor and control unit ensures an optimized soldering profile and even better soldering results. In addition, the SCPU® makes optimum use of the energy employed by only consuming the power that is actually needed. With the VERSAFLOW ONE, Kurtz Ersa offers an ideal entry into the VERSAFLOW world and shows how decades of know-how from the market leader is made available even for entry-level models. The third highlight is the i-CON TRACE, the world´s first fully networkable soldering station that already offers 100% connectivity when delivered. Thanks to integrated WLAN, Bluetooth and network card, it can be fully integrated even into MES-controlled production processes and makes the entire manual soldering process traceable and documentable. But the increasing digitization and networking is also taken into account with a broad service portfolio. With the I4.0 approach “Kurtz Ersa Connect”, customers are offered a smart solution via which services, machines and production can be centrally networked and controlled.
The performance show at the trade fair was rounded off by an automation system plus ROBOPLACE station, which presented a modular system with various transport/handling modules as well as manual or inline workstations. In addition, customers and visitors could enter virtual worlds and learn about a VR presentation with the digital 3D experience of all Ersa products at the touch of a button. “Kurtz Ersa´s appearance at Productronica has once again proven that our products and solutions fully serve current trends such as 5G communication or electromobility and meet the needs of our customers across the board – many thanks at this point to our customers and interested parties for the fantastic reception,” said Ersa CEO Ralph Knecht.
