Product Spotlight

The key to an efficient assembly and rework application is to maintain proper tip temperature and avoid damage, which is why SensaTemp® from PACE has become a leading technology in the electronics manufacturing industry.

Your run-of-the-mill soldering station may indicate it’s soldering at, for instance, 700°F. However, that temperature display only indicates the heat of the soldering pencil. It does not take into account the additional heat generated when coming in contact with the solder and component or printed circuit board.

This is precisely where SensaTemp® technology is leaps and bounds more efficient for general and precision soldering applications.

What is SensaTemp®?

SensaTemp® is a highly responsive, close-looped temperature control system, featuring a high-precision laser-trimmed sensor.

SensaTemp® recognizes the work’s thermal load, and instantly provides the heat required for safe, rapid reflow. Significantly reducing the chances of operator damage, The PACE MBT stations installed with SensaTemp® provide an advanced thermal process control. This control allows you to solder at a safer, lower temperature. And according to PACE, this allows you to get consistent results even during heavy, continuous use.

There are numerous configurations of MBT stations with SensaTemp® technology on our site and you can check them out here.

With the latest major addition to the All-Spec Loctite® line, we are excited for our clients to try out the Bond-A-Matic adhesive dispensing system, which has a pressure range of 0 to 15 psi, ideal for low-viscosity adhesives under 3,000 cPs. Here are three essential benefits of this system:

#1 Precision = Efficiency and Lower Cost of Ownership

With this model, Loctite focused on a system that dispensed adhesive in the most efficient manner possible. With the adjustable pressure regulator, users have increased control of the amount of solution dispensed, significantly reducing waste.

#2 Adaptable

The Bond-A-Matic has a diverse dispenser that is compatible with a variety of bottles and squeeze tube sizes, including:

  • 250-ml bottles
  • One-pound bottles
  • One-liter bottles
  • Two-kilogram bottles
  • 200-gram squeeze tubes

#3 All-Inclusive Kit

Rather than nickel-and-diming its customers, Loctite took the best route possible and offers everything you need to get your adhesive dispensing started in one, complete order. The Bond-A-Matic comes with the following accessories:

  • Reservoir with ¼” tank fitting
  • Vari-Drop applicator
  • Teflon-lined black feedline (¼” outer diameter; 7” long)
  • Two spring strain reliefs
  • Anti-bubbler tip and sleeve
  • Needle assortment kit
  • Tube of silicone grease

Back in late September we posted a blog that featured five reasons to try Alpha Telecore HF-850 solder wire. Since then, many engineers have made the transition to this model for a few reasons.

Launched in 2012, the HF-850 promised to provide a quick-wetting flux solution that performs at the highest efficiency possible while complying with IEC, JPCA and JEDEC halogen-content standards.

However, creating a fast-wetting solder wire isn’t new to the industry. There are plenty of other solder wires that come close to the wetting efficiency of the HF-850 model.

What separates it from the competition is its low level of spatter and fumes.

Why is a low-spatter feature important?

Technically flux spatter is not overly harmful to your PCBs and components. It can be easily cleaned with flux remover. But a reduced flux spatter saves you time and the nuisance of continuously cleaning your components during a soldering application.

The HF-850 is proven to leave fewer residues on PCBs than the typical solder wire, which helps the overall efficiency of an application.

Fewer Fumes = Safer Working Environment

Today’s industrial standards require fume extractors for most, if not all, soldering applications. Even with an extractor or well-ventilated lab you may be susceptible to harmful fumes from certain solder wire brands.

To achieve a low fume extraction rate, Alpha focused its efforts on formulating the HF-850 with a low halide and acid content.

What soldering applications is the HF-850 ideal for?

Alpha notes that this model of solder wire can be used for any no-clean soldering application–robotic and hand soldering–especially if the manufacturing team is looking for a halogen-free solution.

A Heat Gun that Reads Surface Temperature

by Andy on December 31, 2014

Now you can have a heat gun that displays the temperature of the object you’re heating!

With its electronically integrated infrared sensor, Master Appliance has developed one of the most technologically advanced heat guns in the industry.

The Proheat® 1600 STC™ (STC) combines thermal-sensing capabilities with an industry grade heat gun.

Why is this heat gun so unique?

Certain applications in production environments and electronics manufacturing require a surface or object to reach a specific temperature.

Before the STC was developed, you needed two separate devices for that process: a heat gun and an infrared sensor.

A heat gun is relatively inexpensive, but an infrared sensor can cost a few thousand dollars. This two-in-one option is a cost-friendly solution for engineers.

For more information about this new heat gun, reach out to us at Sales@All-Spec.com.
