Custom Interconnect Limited Installs Latest Nordson SELECT Novo™ 460PD Selective Soldering System

16 Aug 2018

Novo™ 460PD combines flexibility and modularity with unique parallel and double processing modes expanding selective soldering throughput

Liberty Lake, WA, USA – 14 August 2018 – Nordson SELECT, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN), is pleased to announce that Custom Interconnect Ltd. has installed the latest Novo™ 460PD
selective soldering system in their Andover, Hampshire facility in the United Kingdom.

The Novo™ 460PD selective soldering system is designed to process printed circuit board
assemblies up to 460 x 460 mm (18.1 x 18.1 in.) without operator intervention and is one of the most flexible system in the Nordson SELECT product portfolio. The system automatically applies flux and molten solder to through-hole component leads without disturbing adjacent SMT components, and provides solder quality that is significantly superior to hand soldering with consistent barrel fill and topside solder fillets. The Novo™ 460PD out performs at least five hand soldering operators providing a return on investment that can be measured in several days.

John Boston, Managing Director of Custom Interconnect Ltd. commented, “After reviewing other systems on the market it was an easy decision to make. A combination of the overall capability and the dual solder pot system soon made the Novo™ 460PD system the solution we were looking for.”

Boston added, “As well as SAC305 RoHS alloy products, we have a number of military customers who still require tin-lead soldering. We can utilize the dual pot system of the Novo™ 460PD by filling one pot with SAC305 alloy and the other with tin-lead alloy. As each board type is programmed into the machine, we can configure it to use the relevant solder pot with zero chance of cross contamination. We have therefore ended up with an auto through-hole soldering system for both SAC305 and tin-lead which has enabled Custom Interconnect Ltd. to phase out both of its older wave soldering machines.”

Nordson SELECT selective soldering systems have been honored with several prestigious awards for innovation and excellence. With over 25 years of experience in electronics manufacturing, and with a highly experienced and devoted team, Nordson SELECT has risen to become the foremost worldwide supplier of selective soldering systems.
