The ERSA Versaflow is a fully automatic in-line selective soldering system operating within a nitrogen atmosphere.  The Versaflow has been designed in particular for the automatic soldering of power components such as edge connectors, relays, and transformers which in spite of the increasing trend to SMD components in the assembly process, remain to be assembled with through hole technology.  The ERSA Versaflow is a modular deisgn and contrains the process zones for fluxing, preheating, and soldering, each zone being equipment with an independent conveyor system.  
The VERSAFLOW offers a maximum of flexibility and doubles the throughput when equipped with a second single wave module.  The in-line concept, combined with the three basic modules for flux, preheat and solder, work simultaneously and independently of each other, ensuring maximum throughput. The system can handle the parallel processing of up to 5 PCBs simultaneously.  
The in-line conveyor system transports the PCBs from module to module, and ensures that they are precisely fixed in position for processing. The separately programmable movement sequences of the precision fluxer (x-y axis system) and of the solder pot (x-y-z servo driven axis system) and enable parameters to be set individually for every single solder joint. The wettable solder nozzle surface is completely covered with a nitrogen blanket and thus guarantees a very high standard of solder joint quality. The large selection of solder nozzles can be exchanged quickly & easily and guarantee the optimal processing of the largest selection of selective applications.
Production flexibility and throughput can even be further increased by using a second optional solder aggregate. An additional advantage of the VERSAFLOW is the free space above the PCBs that is not limited by grippers or handling systems. This free space can be used for optional top side convection heaters in the pre-heating area and/or above the soldering module. With the topside convection heaters, even the most thermally demanding PCBs can be safely processed.
The solder aggregate has a service-free electromagnetic solder pump with no mechanically moved parts. Simple programming of the system via CAD data, and reduced service and cleaning, contribute to an increase in productivity and profitability.
