Why the Wave Optimizer?

What are its 8 unique reasons?
The Wave Optimizer is the only device which accurately and comprehensively measures all aspects of your wave solder process in a single run.  Read More

What does it measure?
Specific procedures show you exactly how to interpret and react to each of the 12 key data points of wave soldering.  Read More

Why are its key features important?
The instant display screen and four run memory — patented, direct wave sensor array — direct measurement of immersion depth — user friendly Optimizer Data Manager software — exclusive Thermal Sensor Card — the one and only Flux Distribution Window — ultra-ruggedized Carrier at the exact width you specify — lifetime support.  Read More

Is the display screen essential?
The instant display screen combined with the four run memory plus comprehensive wave soldering data will transform your approach to improving your board quality.  Read More

How does the Flux Distribution Window help me?
The Flux Distribution Window tells you about your fluxer’s performance and repeatability immediately, each time you run your Optimizer.  Read More

Are its special procedures easy?
You could find it remarkable how quickly defects can be reduced and eliminated – even defects you’ve accepted as normal and come to live with.  Read More

How do I run it?
No hook-ups or connections.  Travels through your wave machine just like your printed circuit boards. Read More

Why not other methods?
We now know that wave soldering is so much more than thermal profiles, glass plates and wave machine settings.  Traditional methods of wave solder process control focus on the wrong parameters and are inadequate for measuring the data points that are most important to your board quality.

Will it help me?
The guess work is removed, touchup is reduced, scrapping is eliminated and set-up time is shortened when you identify all of your optimal parameters and maintain precise repeatability.  Read More

“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

“Your company walked in here and quickly showed my staff how to reduce defects that we’ve had to live with for a long time.”

– Dennis Herrick, Director of Operations, Condor

“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

“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

“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

“Su instructor resolvió el problema de soldadura excesiva y los cortos ajustando nuestro proceso según los datos de nuestro Optimizador, y nos mostró la manera en que podemos hacer esto nosotros mismos”.

Gary Wirth, Supervisor de producción, Honeywell

“I have worked with wave solder machines for years and can honestly say that this was the most informative and thorough class that I have attended on this subject.

– Dale Shedd, Process Engineer, Adtran

“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

“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

“Your wave soldering seminar gave us concrete methods and procedures completely different and beyond anything we’ve ever heard or seen from other vendors or ‘experts’.”

– Juan Guevara, SMT and Through Hole Manager, Alps Automotive
