What Are Its 8 Unique Reasons?

Reason 1.  The only device that accurately and comprehensively measures all aspects of your wave solder process in a single run:  Board-wave interaction, temperatures and fluxer performance.

Reason 2.  An entirely unique, easy, friendly user interface.  This applies to the actual device, its Optimizer Data Manager software and its high impact procedures for attacking and eliminating your wave soldering defects.  The Wave Optimizer is accessible to your entire team – managers, engineers, technicians and operators alike.

Reason 3.  Clear procedures that will ensure the accuracy and repeatability of your wave machines. Likewise, proven methods that attack and eliminate your wave soldering defects, defects such as bridges, insufficients, skips, pinholes and solder balls.  You will save everybody a lot of headaches, with less touchup, rework and scrapping, fewer failures at test and lower daily production costs.

Reason 4.  The Wave Optimizer runs through your wave machine just like your boards. No hookups. No delays. You can run it throughout production, saving you time and hassle.

Reason 5.  Patented board-wave contact sensors experience your solder waves just like the leads on your assemblies, instantly telling you exactly how your boards are traveling through your solder waves. No estimates.  No projections from computer models.  No extrapolations from temperature movements to determine key parameters like immersion depth.  Reliable, direct, accurate readings only.

Reason 6.  An on board thermal sensor card facilitates the fastest and easiest thermal profiling in the industry, specifically designed for the needs of wave soldering.  Isn’t it time your daily temperature readings required no extra steps?  And what if your temperatures were presented for the special requirements of wave soldering, rather than adapted from an approach designed for reflow?

Reason 7.  A special Flux Distribution Window lets you immediately determine if your flux is being applied thoroughly and evenly.  Everybody knows daily flux application is important.  Why take extra steps to verify your flux application?  Why not enjoy the benefits of fluxer performance information each time you measure your wave soldering process?

Reason 8.  Because of its powerful capabilities and extraordinary ease of use, the Wave Optimizer is the most widely used, battle-tested, cost-cutting, proven wave solder process 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

“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

“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

“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

“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

“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

“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

“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

“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
