OEM soldering robot for integrator

The mta OEM soldering robot for integrator can be used for semi or fully automatic operations of selective point to point soldering from above.

Thanks to its unique concept, the OEM robot is delivered to the system’s manufacturer with a process guarantee.

The OEM robot can be equipped with any of mta’s soldering heads: soldering iron, induction, microflame; except for the mta MLH45 laser head.

The 3 or 4 axes of the OEM robot are fully programmable through the mta-MotionEditor software, including soldering parameters such as:

  • Solder quantity, wire feed speed, preheating/postheating times, automatic tip cleaning cycle intervals and other parameters for each soldered point.

With its flexible and modular concept, the OEM robot can be fully and easily integrated into a production line.

The main features of our OEM robot include:

  • Welded frame construction
  • 4-axis soldering robot, Y-axis in the base to also present parts to the operator
  • 300x300mm or 500×500 working area
  • Industrial PC controller with Embedded Windows® operating system
  • Intuitive menu-driven mta MotionEditor software

4 reasons to choose the mta OEM soldering robot

  1. The X, Y, and Z axis use ball-screw actuators for precise actuation with a repeatability of ±20 μm to assure the process is accurate and delivers consistent quality.
  2. Properly designed heads are fairly heavy, so large DC stepper motors are used that provide the strength needed to actuate the head quickly.
  3. The OEM platform offers a high flexibility in terms of mechanical and electrical integration i.e. it can be easily and securerly integrated into the customer’s machine.
  4. Intuitive menu-driven mta MotionEditor software.

Each machine is specifically tailored to the customer’s application, but the standard OEM soldering robot comes well-equipped:

  • 3 axis cartesian robot
  • Complete soldering head according to the chosen technology
  • Tip cleaner depending on the chosen head
  • Air preparation system
  • Industrial panel PC with touch screen
  • Full-size keyboard

Options:

  • Rotary axis
  • Specific fixture
  • Fume extraction system depending on the chosen head
  • Monitoring camera
  • Recentering camera
  • Part presence sensor
  • Part height measuring sensor
  • Automated sponge humidification system depending on the chosen head

mta OEM soldering robot for integrator

Available heads

  • Iron head for soldering robots

    Classic soldering iron

    mta’s classic iron head for soldering robots is our most popular soldering technology. Probably because most customers are upgrading from hand soldering with the iron.

    We can integrate the classic iron head for soldering robots on any of our standard soldering platforms including: MRC500, TR300, OEM and station.

    The main features of our classic iron head for soldering robots include:

    • Multiple adjustments allowing easy configuration for specific applications
    • Robust structure guaranteeing that tip and wire feeder do not get misaligned accidentally
    • Soldering tips have a long life span and users can change them quickly and easily
    • Extensive tip selection to suit a wide variety of applications
    • Jam-free wire feeder mounted directly on the head provides tight process control
    • Lead free compatible

    7 reasons to choose the mta classic soldering iron

    1. The soldering tip is separate from the heating element, so users do not need to change the heating element as frequently as the tip. This reduces consumable cost.
    2. A pneumatically-dampened spring lowers the tip to allow compliance between the tip and part. This provides good thermal transfer while protecting the parts and tip. Also, the robot does not use the z-axis to move the iron tip.
    3. There are no stamped sheet metal or die-cast parts. We machined the robust head structure from solid material to provide a rigid platform for the iron and wire feeder.
    4. The clamping system provides easy adjustment and precise alignment. Once tightened, the position will not change until loosened – there is no risk of accidental misalignment as a result of heavy use or while changing tips.
    5. We mounted our precise jam-free wire feeder directly on the head – at the solder joint. This provides tight process control of the wire feed. Solder wire does not kink or get jammed since there is no long feed tube. Once the correct amount is fed, the wire feeder pulls the wire out of the solder pool to prevent solder spatter.
    6. We integrated the fume extraction nozzle into the head itself. Therefore, it is mounted directly above the solder joint to safely remove fumes.
    7. In addition to the iron, wire feeder and fume extraction nozzle, the head can support several optional devices such as: cameras, flux dispensers, dual feeders, dual irons and the list goes on.

  • Induction head for soldering robots

    Induction head

    mta’s induction head is appropriate for robots soldering joints that have a high thermal mass and require more heat to solder. Other heating methods must allow time for the heat to migrate from outside-in; whereas, the induction system is able to create heat within the part to greatly reduce process time.

    We can integrate the induction soldering head on any of our standard soldering platforms including: MRC500, TR300, OEM, and station.

    The main features of our induction head include:

    • Quickly heats parts with high thermal mass
    • We can shape the coil to meet specific application requirements
    • Solid-state control
    • Non-contact soldering
    • The jam-free wire feeder mounted directly on the head provides tight process control
    • Suitable for brazing (hard alloy)
    • Non-conductive parts of the components to be soldered are not heated by the induction
    • Lead-free compatible

    8 reasons to choose the mta induction soldering head

    1. Inductive soldering quickly heats high-mass parts. Therefore, it is an excellent technology for heavy/multi-layer boards, large cable terminals, non-electronic parts, and many others.
    2. Inductive fields heats without damaging the product. Inductive fields penetrate the material to create heat form inside the board. This uniform heating method does not burn the outer surface. By contrast, technologies that push heat from the outside-inward, can damage the outer surface before the joint reaches reflow temperature.
    3. There are no stamped sheet metal or die-cast parts. We machined the robust head structure from solid material to provide a rigid platform for the iron and wire feeder.
    4. The clamping system provides easy adjustment and precise alignment. Once tightened, the position will not change until loosened – there is no risk of accidental misalignment as a result of heavy use or while changing tips.
    5. We mounted our precise jam-free wire feeder directly on the head – at the solder joint.  This provides tight process control of the wire feed. Solder wire does not kink or get jammed since there is no long feed tube. Once the correct amount is fed, the wire feeder pulls the wire out of the solder pool to prevent solder spatter.
    6. We integrated the fume extraction nozzle into the head itself. Therefore, it is mounted directly above the solder joint to safely remove fumes.
    7. In addition to the inductor, wire feeder, and fume extraction nozzle, the head can support several optional devices such as: cameras, flux dispensers, dual feeders, dual irons and the list goes on.
    8. Very low consumables – no iron tips or cleaning sponges.
