Manual Soldering Machine
The manual soldering machine is an economic solution to solder the
connectors on heatable backlites. It is well adapted for flexible
production as well as for using as a back-up unit for automated
soldering systems. It gives excellent results and reliable soldering quality.
The equipment is a light-weight mobile unit with compact
construction mounted on wheels. The soldering head, with two tungsten
electrodes, is controlled pneumatically. The automatic feed of soldering
wire is adjustable. The workstation is a rotary table, where the glass is positioned.
Total weight: 120 kg
Electric supply: 220 V, 50/60 Hz
Compressed air: 6 bar
The equipment is mounted on wheels, and consists of
The soldering cycle is short : just a few seconds.
The soldering can be done immediately after tempering on a still warm glass, or later, after removing possibly oxidized surface.
All types of connectors are suitable, of copper or coated. Standard connector holder of the machine suits most connector types. Special holders are available according to customer needs.
2-head Manual Soldering Machine
2-head manual soldering machine is an economic solution for
soldering connectors of any shape to any location on the backlite.
Any pre-soldered or laminated connectors can be used.
It is well adapted for flexible production as well as for using as
a back-up unit for automated soldering systems. It gives excellent
results and reliable soldering quality.
The equipment is a light-weight mobile unit with compact construction. The workstation is a table, where the glass is positioned and fixed. The soldering heads, mounted on articulated arms, with two tungsten electrodes, are individually, manually controlled, which enables soldering in any position in any angle on the glass.
Soldering time : 4-5 sec
Cooling time : 10 sec
Total weight : 130 kg
Electric supply : 220 V, 50/60 Hz
Compressed air : 6 bar
Semi-automatic soldering machine with positioning jig
This machine is very suitable for mixed production, equipped with a positioning jig, suitable for each
or a few different backlites models. The soldering heads are positioned in the guide indents of the
jig, thus descending at the exact, desired location, corresponding to each backlite model.
The positioning of the glass is assured
with 3 fixed and 1 mobile pinion, which hold the glass in place on the positioning jig during the soldering
cycle. The system comprises :
• A bridge, 2500 mm wide and 2000 mm high made of sturdy aluminium profile
• A workstation to hold the jig, located between the vertical columns of the bridge.
• An electric control cabinet, 600 x 600 x 350 mm, containing the control equipment common to
both soldering heads, and a power transformer for soldering head No. 1. On the door of the control
cabinet are mounted: power indicator, main breaker, 2 voltage indicators for adjustment of
power supply to the electrodes, and 2 knobs for adjustment of the auto-transformers for primary
• Another electric cabinet, containing a power transformer for soldering head No. 2.
• Control panel, the location of which is chosen by the customer.
• 2 soldering heads, suspended on the bridge and manipulated with coil elevators
Pre-heating system for the glass : hot air blower with 2 fully adjustable nozzles.
This system is located below the workstation, with 360° rotation, independent of the rotation of the
worksta- tion. The blower is movable along the arm and its position can be adjusted on 2 axes to
enable exact direc- tion of the hot air flow onto the points to be soldered.
The selected positioning jig is placed onto the workstation, the soldering heads are docked into their
corres- ponding guide indents on the jig.
The glass is placed between the fixed positioning pins and the connector guide is placed on the glass.
If included, the optional hot air nozzles are adjusted according to the glass model.
The hot air blower is started with the pushbutton and when the glass surface reaches the correct
tempera- ture the hot air blower stops.
The connectors are placed into their corresponding slots
Power is connected to the electrodes and soldering starts, with simultaneous measurement of
soldering intensity ( A ). A warning signal indicates exceeded set parameters.
The electrodes are retracted after a short cooling time and the soldering heads are raised.
The glass is unloaded from the workstation and visual control is made
The automatic cycle takes approx. 28” ( incl. pre-heating phase and cooling ).
