MRC500 automatic wire soldering cell with integrated collaborative robot
Have you ever seen a collaborative robot stripping a wire and soldering it independently?
We made it thanks to our robust MRC500 soldering robotic cell integrated with a collaborative robot and an automatic wire stripping unit.
This innovative solution allows the cutting, stripping, handling and soldering of a wire on a PCB and is unique on the market.
4 reasons to choose this innovative integrated solution
- Precise and fully adjustable wire cutting and stripping.
- Automatic positioning of the wire on a PCB with a collaborative robot.
- Wire soldering with a compact design 150W iron head.
- Quick & easy adjustment of all process parameters.

MRC500 soldering robotic cell
The MRC500 is the larger robotic cell that supports point to point soldering from above. The standardized platform is based on a flexible and modular concept that can be adapted to a range of processes from fully-automated in-line to stand-alone semi-automated processes.
The MRC500 can be equipped with any of mta’s soldering heads: soldering iron, induction and microflame. There is also a variation of the MRC500 specific to laser soldering that can be equipped with the mta MLH45 laser head.
The main features of our MRC500 include:
- Welded frame construction
- 3-axis Cartesian robot with optional rotary axis at the head
- 500x500mm working area
- Industrial PC controller with Embedded Windows® operating system
- Intuitive menu-driven mta MotionEditor software
3 reasons to choose the mta MRC500 soldering robotic cell
- The mta MRC500 is both purposes-built and standardized. The advantage of being purpose-built is that there was no need to compromise functionality around pre-defined limitations. The advantage of standardizing the design is that it does not come with the heavy cost associated with one-off custom machines.
- The X, Y, and Z axis use ball-screw actuators for precise actuation with a repeatability of 20 microns to assure the process is accurate and delivers consistent quality.
- Properly designed heads are fairly heavy, so large DC stepper motors are used that provide the strength needed to actuate the head quickly.
Classic soldering iron
The mta soldering iron is the most popular soldering technology probably because most customers are looking to upgrade from hand soldering with the iron.
Solder wire feeder
The location of the mta wire feeder is unique. Placing it directly on the solder head improves accuracy, reliability, and overall performance. We are distinctive in this regard because our purpose-built robot is able to support the additional weight at the end of the robot.
Heating elements are available for both 80W and 150W irons. As these units are submitted to high temperature, they need to be replaced from time to time and as such can easily be changed when necessary.
