Eurocircuits will use Southern Electronics 2011 to launch two machines intended for prototype and small batch PCB production.

The machines are said to enable the high-quality soldering of surface-mount assemblies without the need for any major investment.

The first machine is for fast solder paste printing and uses low-cost, laser-cut stainless stencils from Eurocircuits.

Magnetic location, combined with supports, makes it possible to print on the second side of a board that already carries components.

The repeatability of registration, meets the standards required of small batch production.

The second, a reflow soldering machine, features quartz lamps in the top and bottom of the oven, allowing preheating and subsequent fast heat up for maximum control of the soldering cycle.

Forced air circulation ensures an even temperature throughout the oven.

Drawers open automatically after reflow for rapid cooling and to minimise board stress.

For repeat work, profile set-ups can be stored externally on a PC via a USB port; while the oven itself can store five profiles.

Both machines can handle boards measuring 350mm x 250mm.

Southern Manufacturing and Electronics Show

The Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Show is the South’s top industrial business event. The show concentrates virtually every aspect of manufacturing and industrial activity into a single, easily accessible venue. This makes it possible for visitors to experience an extraordinary range of suppliers and technologies in a single visit. Entry and car parking is free, and FIVE is easily accessible by road or public transport.

Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2011 takes place on February 16th and 17th, at FIVE, Farnborough – right next to Farnborough Airport. Another 750 square meters of exhibition space has been added to the venue for 2011 and the number of companies taking part is expected to exceed 600, making it the largest event ever staged.  

In addition to the huge variety of hardware on display, the show hosts an extremely popular free technical seminar programme. Running over both days and in two theatres, the seminars cover a wide range of topics that are highly relevant to anyone involved in engineering-related business. Sessions will include designing for commercial success, team management, CE marking, the latest developments in additive manufacture, Lean/Six Sigma and many others. Full details can be found on the show website.
