TCO Total-Cost-of-Ownership Analysis
Market demands are forcing the OEM and EMS global players to look beyond the soldering process alone in order to optimize the manufacturing process from a total economic efficiency standpoint. Maintaining the competitive edge will go to those strategic manufacturers who maximize production output per m² of floor space, who minimize the defect rate and minimize the total cost of production per PCB: better said, who maximize the total profit per PCB. This means cost reduction is paramount!
It was precisely for this reason that ERSA invested in a new wave soldering machine concept which places process quality, throughput and running costs at the forefront of the R & D. The days of investing in just any wave solder machine for integration into the production line are over. Today, the economical aspects and true performance of the machine must play a major role in the decision making process.
Lowest Running Costs for energy, nitrogen and solder materials
Modern, full nitrogen tunnel wave soldering machines designed for high volume production realize their tremendous advantages not only in the increased quality, but also in the significant reduction of running costs for energy, solder, flux & nitrogen when compared to classical wave soldering. The innovative POWERFLOW N2 full tunnel was specifically designed to realize running cost savings as much as 90% when compared to conventional wave solder machines. Additionally, advanced serviceability was a key design criteria POWERFLOW N2. The goal was to guarantee the highest machine availability while at the same time affording the lowest costs for maintenance.
Only via a Total Cost of Ownership analysis is it possible to determine the economic efficiency of a machine with respect to profitability.
