Wenesco Soldering Equipment


[Home]  [About Wenesco]

Wenesco has a long history of producing standard and custom made wave solder pots and systems for the Electronics and Automotive industries.

These devices include wave solder fountains for PCB soldering, Mini-Wave solder pots for selective soldering, custom wave solder pots for continuous wire tinning, and heavy duty lead- free wave solder pots for soldering automotive radiators and battery cables

We also produce special wave solder systems for soldering stators and armatures


Wave solder pots

standard and custom made for selective soldering, dipping and tinning, basic wave soldering systems.

Wave rework solder pots

for desoldering. Remove and replace lead-thru components from PCBs



WENESCO AUTOSLIDE 6A is a complete Wave Solder System for soldering circuit boards and other assemblies, not exceeding 6-in. square.

This compact bench mounted machine, utilizing a motor driven programmable slide conveyor, is designed to solder up to 100 boards per hour .


1. The pcb is placed into the adjustable board holder on the slide conveyer 
The conveyer is started using the remote control 
The slide conveyor will transport the board through the flux, preheat and wave solder  to the end position 
The soldered board is removed, and using the remote control, the slide is returned to the start position.

DIMENSIONS:  36 in wide, 24 in deep, 22 in high


This system requires 2000 W. Select 120 or 240V

SLIDE RAIL:MODEL SR19  permits programming speed and direction. Speed may be set to change within a measured zone. You can set the speed slower when the pcb is over the preheater if you need more heat.

WAVE SOLDER POT:MODEL M04E2, for lead-free solder and other alloys. A digital thermostat controls the temperature up to 320C. The 6 x 1 in wave is variable from 0 to .250 in high . The pot holds 65 lbs solder.

RADIANT PREHEATER:MODEL PMX66 is controlled with a variable silicone rectifier (SCR)

FOAM FLUXER:MODEL C79-6 is made from 304 stainless steel. The foam head is 6 x 2 in. Foam is controlled with an air pressure regulator.



Nitrogen Inerted wave solder pot. 


Custom made solder nozzles and fixturing  


PLC for slide rail which will permit a wide selection of new functions  


Longer slide rail to accommodate boards up to 6x12 in

For successful wave soldering, it is important that component leads and base metals both reach an effective soldering temperature as close as possible to the same heating rate

The effective temperature is the temperature necessary to assure metallurgical bonding of the solder alloy and the base metals to be soldered.

Metallurgical bonding during wave solder requires that both surfaces to be soldered reach the proper soldering temperature for a sufficient time to allow the wetting of the solder surfaces and the formation of intermetallic compound(s) of the base metal(s) with one or more constituents of the solder alloy.

Minimum soldering temperature is usually 25C above the melting temperature of the solder alloy. The solder joint on a given assembly that reaches the minimum soldering temperature last is typically underneath one of the most massive components.

Wave soldering requires controlled rates of heating. Heavy multilayer PCBs can be damaged without preheat, as well as components.

It is very important, for these reasons, the wave solder pot should be capable of accurate temperature control.

Therefore, when profiling assemblies for wave solder, the following areas should be closely monitored

Ramp Up: The rate of temperature increase controlled to ensure the PWB, components and flux have sufficient time to reach soldering temperature without degradation.

Thermal Spike: Thermal spike is measured to ensure components are not exposed to excessive heat during the solder cycle.

Mini wave solder pots are sometimes used for soldering small components and tinning coil leads at elevated temperatures These mini fountains, up to 900F, are made to order
