Cobham invests in new system from Hentec/RPS
Hentec Industries/RPS Automation has received an order from Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions for a Pulsar solderability system.
The Pulsar solderability test system determines how well molten solder will wet on solderable surfaces of electronic components in order to ensure robust and reliable solder joints.
The system utilises a dip-and-look test method that is a qualitative type test performed by comparative analysis after specimens are dipped in a bath of flux and molten solder. An advantage of the dip-and-look method is since it is based on comparative analysis it can be performed rapidly by shop floor personnel with minimal training as well as requiring significantly lower capital investment then a wetting balance test system.
Headquartered in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions is one of the largest providers of hardened technology for the United States aerospace and defense industry.
