The flame soldering machine solders brass pins to pre-punched brass badges. The badges are automatically fed from a magazine onto a rotary indexing table and processed over 8 stations. The soldering process is consistently monitored with sensors. The hydrogen used for flame welding is generated directly in the machine.
Each soldering position can be entered and saved. When the type of work piece is changed, the machine is very easy to adjust by selecting a different programme on the PLC formula control touch panel. The soldering machine can also be easily and flexibly extended for new products.
The flame soldering machine is used for soldering aluminium cooling segments. The cooling elements are hard-soldered at the interfaces. The soldering points are heated by a hydrogen flame which melts the solder with integrated flux. Automatic soldering takes place simultaneously at different joints.
The system is automatically loaded and the finished soldered cooling segment is automatically removed by a robot.
Mastery of the soldering process is the prerequisite for the development of such automated systems. The required brazing temperature is only slightly below the melting temperature of aluminium. Ensuring the repeatedly and reliability of the process is a great challenge. Because of decades of experience of the ELMOTEC team, the development and production of these high-precision soldering is possible. These machines work in 3-shift operation to the complete satisfaction of our end customer, reaching cycle times of hess than two minutes.
