Soldering station for integrator

For applications that do not require the flexibility of a robot, a simple soldering station is available. It allows semi or fully automatic operations of selective point to point soldering from above.

The modularity of slides and standard elements enable to find a solution adapted to the customer’s application.

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

2 reasons to choose the mta soldering station

  1. High flexibility in terms of mechanical and electrical integration.
  2. Guaranteed turnkey process within reasonable costs.

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.
