RPS designs and manufacturers a complete line of high precision automated selective soldering machines. All RPS systems perform precise dip, drag and dip soldering using innovative RPS Gaussian MiniWave Nozzles™ and high durability spray, jet and ultrasonic flux nozzles; both nozzles articulate below the PCB. Solder management systems can be hot-swapped for lead and lead-free processing in the same system.

RPS selective soldering systems represent years of engineering refinement and innovation to provide an unrivaled performance-to-price value proposition; out-performing the soldering specifications of competitive systems, yet remaining competitively priced.

Designed for flexibility and precision, the RPS selective soldering systems achieve RPS’s well-known performance criteria in all respects.

  • PCB and Pot Motion Configuration
  • X/Y/Z Lead Screw Servo Motion Control
  • Soldering Range 12″x12″
  • Single Pot / Single Nozzle
  • Precision for a small footprint

The Vector 460 selective soldering machine is a powerful system in a space-saving footprint. This soldering machine has been designed for high mix, high value, and low to mid volume PCB production environments. It can be programmed in minutes and can handle basic to complex dip, drag, wire bond and other through-hole soldering processes previously performed by hand or wave soldering.

The Vector 460 soldering system features best-in-class servo motor motion control, providing speed, accuracy, and repeatability. A superior thermal performance miniwave is achieved with the use of a closed loop temperature controlled nitrogen inertion process. RPS Automation offers innovative miniwave nozzle designs for wave stability and defect free performance.
