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


“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

“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

“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 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

“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

“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

“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

“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 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
