Gen3 Systems Limited, a specialist British manufacturer and distributor, is pleased to announce its formal appointment as exclusive distributor in UK and Ireland for Nordson SELECT Selective Soldering Systems.

Gen3 has worked with ACE Production Technologies for almost 10 years with significant success, so the ACE acquisition by Nordson Corporation earlier in 2017, provides an even stronger foundation for our customer base. Founded in 2005, ACE will operate as a new line of business within Nordson Corporation’s Advanced Technology Systems segment.

Selective soldering systems are used in a variety of automotive, aerospace and industrial electronics assembly applications. This is highly complimentary to Gen3’s existing of inspection, test and production solutions.

Graham Naisbitt, Gen3’s Managing Director commented: “We are extremely proud to be included in this new development with one of the industry’s largest and most successful businesses; it is a wonderful endorsement of Gen3’s capabilities”.

Selective soldering is the process of soldering specific components to printed circuit boards and moulded modules. The approach is chosen for processes where components could be damaged by the heat of a reflow oven in a traditional surface mount (SMT) assembly process or where reliability dictates through-hole mounting. Entry level selective soldering is often used as an efficiency and quality improvement solution over hand soldering.
