Cerno® 3MDX

The Cerno® 3MDX is a robust selective soldering system delivering an exceptional combination of versatility, productivity and value. The Cerno® 3MDX has many unique features, including combining wave soldering and selective soldering in one compact platform.

Features and Benefits

  • MDX solder pot with integrated 200 mm wide wave solder nozzle and dual selective soldering nozzles
  • Wave nozzle can solder left-to-right or right-to-left and can solder around obstacles
  • Dual selective soldering nozzles with independent control broadens flexibility and increases efficiency
  • SWAK-OS graphics-based programming and machine control software enables fast and straightforward program creation
  • Optional in-line flux and preheat module with concurrent fluxing and preheating provides increased throughput

Soldering Technology

The patent pending MDX solder pot integrates a 200 mm (8.0 in.) wide wave nozzle with dual selective soldering nozzles. Individually programmable solder pumps allow solder volume and wave height to be independently optimized for each solder nozzle. The nitrogen inerted wave and selective solder nozzles speed up the soldering process, minimize changeovers and boost overall productivity.

MDX solder pot with wave and selective nozzles


With its unique patent pending MDX solder pot, the Cerno® 3MDX doubles your capabilities in wave soldering and selective soldering. The future of mixed-technology assembly belongs to those who can process any through-hole soldering application with absolute precision and unmatched speed. With the Cerno® 3MDX you no longer have to sacrifice throughput for flexibility…or flexibility for throughput.

Process Control

Nordson SELECT’s closed-loop rotary encoders and other advanced process control capabilities have been incorporated into the Cerno® 3MDX, enhancing solder quality, precision and yield capabilities.
