The IoT soldering station i-CON TRACE, which only recently won the prestigious iF Design Award in the category "Industry/Tools", was the perfect trade fair eye-catcher. It is the first soldering station that can be controlled via smartphone or mobile device - and is therefore made for the digital age. Specially designed for use in digitally networked environments, the i-CON TRACE with integrated WIFI, Bluetooth and network card enables 100% connectivity in digitally networked manufacturing processes and end-to-end traceability in manual soldering.
The next highlight in Ersa’s line-up at SMTconnect were the new soldering stations of the i-CON MK2 series which provide increased performance for industrial hand soldering and lower operating costs at the same time. Featuring 150 W of heating power, these new stations enable optimum performance and soldering results for manual applications. All i-CON MK2 stations incorporate Ersa's newly developed soldering tip technology with extremely fast heating and reheating processes and precise temperature control. The associated i-TOOL MK2 fine soldering iron offers 20% more soldering power and, as a 30-g lightweight, fits perfectly in the hand. Thanks to the patented Tip’n’Turn concept with its bayonet lock, the user can change the soldering tip safely and easily without any additional tool required. The expensive heating element remains intact and continues to be used.
As rework systems are a major product line in Ersa’s portfolio, they consequently were an important cornerstone of the product presentation in Nuremerg. They contribute sustainably to maintaining value added. Whether hand-held stations and "out of the box" tabletop units such as the HR 100 and HR 200, semi-automated systems such as the HR 550 or the fully automated high-end HR 600/3P system for automatic repair of SMT components such as BGA and MLF - Ersa provides a suitable answer to all rework requirements. As far as component and board sizes are concerned, Ersa rework systems can process everything "from micro to mega": from 01005 to BGAs with a side length of 100 x 100 mm, and big boards measuring 625 x 1,250 mm.
"SMTconnect was a great platform for us to present our latest innovations in the area of manual soldering solutions - the direct discussion with visitors showed that our focus on the Tools & Rework division was very well received," said Hansjürgen Bolg, Head of Tools, Rework & Inspection Systems at Ersa.
