EFD’s ProcessMate™ 3000 is a turnkey solution that replaces inconsistent manual wire soldering processes. The workstation combines precise positioning, accurate dispensing of SolderPlus® solder paste, and a hot air reflow system. By removing guesswork from the manual soldering process, the EFD’s ProcessMate™ 3000 Workstation eliminates operator variability, reduces rework and scrap, increases productivity and improves production yields, without the need for special training. “By removing inconsistencies in the deposit size, location and heat, the ProcessMate™ 3000 will change how people approach manual soldering applications,” says Keith Wheeler, General Manager, Solder Paste Group, EFD, Inc. According to Nicholas Meeker, CAM Automation Engineer, Tech Circuits, Inc., “The PM3000 has increased our throughput by 300 percent.” EFD’s ProcessMate™ 3000 has the versatility to be used as a benchtop assembly station or as an integrated station within a larger automated process and is available in several configurations to meet a variety of application requirements. • Average Footprint: 61 x 46 x 76 cm • (24" W x 18" H x 30" D) • System Weight: 20.2 kg (44.5 lbs) (including • base plate, dispense and • reflow axes) • Input Voltage: 100/120/220 VAC • Input Frequency: 50/60 Hz • Input Power: 14/12VA • Internal Voltage: 24VDC • Air Input: 20 to 60 psi (1.4 to 4.1 bar) • Stroke: 100 mm (4") maximum • Maximum Load: 10 kg (22 lbs)
