New ACE system at Murrietta Circuits

ACE Production Technologies has installed a LTS200 lead tinning system at Murrietta Circuits in Anaheim, California.

The KISS-LTS200 is an automated machine specifically intended for the hot solder dip lead tinning process, whereby aged components can be refurbished in preparation for re-qualification to "High Reliability" standards. Murrietta will provide contract Re-tinning services with their new ACE system, a press release states. Re-tinning is an increasingly important aspect of the PCB Assembly process for high-reliability customers due to the obsolescence of many leaded components. Although lead-free components are readily available, their long-term shelf life is still questioned for long-term, mission critical applications due to the tendency for pure tin to grow "metallic whiskers" over time, potentially causing electronic shorts.
