éolane is taking another step towards Industry 4.0 with the acquisition of an Ersa Versaflow 4/55 selective soldering machine at the éolane Valence site. This selective wave is a good investment and will allow an increase in productivity and a significant improvement in the quality of PCBA produced in an automated manner.

Being a true technological innovation, the Versaflow 4/55 is the first machine in France equipped with two Versaflex brazing modules (4 independent brazing pots) and having received the NPI award. Making selective soldering even more efficient, this system is ideal for meeting all customer requirements. Its precision, perfect welding quality and ability to handle multiple tasks simultaneously are simply impressive!

Equipped with a fluxing module, two preheating modules and two modules of two in-line ROHS soldering pots, this versatile and high-speed configuration aims in the long term to completely replace the traditional wave at the Valence production site and certain manual brazing operations, and thus drastically reduce the quality defects inherent in these processes. The production of PCBA will be more flexible, with higher throughput and quality
