Viable Power has the capability to perform both tin-lead and lead-free (RoHS compliant) solder processes using a Manncorp 16.350 Ultra-Compact wave soldering machine with a second solder pot. The machine brings complete through-hole, surface mount and mixed-technology wave soldering capability in a compact footprint. Capable of soldering 1,500 assemblies per 8-hour shift, the 16.350 includes advanced features such as dual waves, a self-cleaning titanium finger conveyor, spray fluxer, forced hot air convection pre-heat, and an energy-saving mode that conserves power and reduces dross formation.
For the secondary assembly or manual solder processes Viable uses Metcal MX-PS5000 and Weller WS51 soldering irons. Repairs can be performed with the Weller WR-3M repair stations. All work benches are equipped with Weller WSA-350 smoke absorbers and centralised adjustable rate smoke extraction.
