Wave Optimizer

  The most widely used, proven, popular,
battle-tested, cost-cutting
wave soldering tool
in the world.

“Our main problem was recurring insufficients.  We made many attempts to address the problem, to no avail.  By using the Optimizer to graph our immersion depth, we identified and corrected turbulence in our main wave.  This has benefited our production process.”

- Jose Martinez, Maintenance Engineering Supervisor, Rain Bird

“The Optimizer made us re-think how we should wave solder.  We shouldn’t blame the board design as often and we cannot rely on a thermal profiler to control our wave process.”

- Martin Orozco, Process Engineer, TRW Automotive

“Prior to investing in the Optimizer, we relied on a thermal profiler but we could not solve our skipping and insufficients problems.  In fact, those defects were not due to improper temperatures at all but instead to how our boards run through our solder waves.”

- Ricardo Soto, Process Engineering Manager, Tyco

“We thought we had tried everything possible to eliminate a bridging problem.  Using the Optimizer, in only a couple of minutes we got rid of the bridging completely by adjusting the dwell time.”

- Alfred Santilla, Wave Solder Supervisor, Universal Lighting

“In all my years in PCB assembly, I have never seen such an enthusiastic response to a training program.  Other vendors never really improved our problems like you have.”

- Luis Velazquez, Engineering Manager, Plexus

“Many of our voids and insufficients were assumed to be design defects.  Your training instructor used our Optimizer’s measurements to make adjustments easily and now we should never see these defects in our production again.  What a relief!”

- Enda Moran, manufacturing Manager, CEL

“The proactive nature of your methodology, which allows us to identify board defects and production issues before they happen, is critical for raising yields.”

- Luis Lopez, Operations Manager, Benchmark Electronics

“The Optimizer identified the root cause of chronic skipping on our boards.  We eliminated the disparallelism it measured.  This had an immediate, positive effect on board quality.”

- Aldrina Paredes, Training manager, Bose Electronics

“Using the Optimizer’s techniques every day on one board type, we saved 257 hours of touch up and rework per month.  This saved our facility over $50,000 in 12 months on this one board type alone.”

- John Lanferman, Process Characterization Group Leader, Celestica

“Your instructor solved our excessive solder and bridging by adjusting our process based on our Optimizer’s data, and showed us how we can easily do this by ourselves.”

- Gary Wirth, Production Supervisor, Honeywell
