This project(mini Selective solder machine) create lightweight selective wave soldering for solder THT electronic Components and connector. Based on electromagnetic solder pump, • No moving parts in contact with solder , maintenance-free, tin wave stability.

   With increases in PCB complexity and component densities, selective soldering is a popular technique for mixed technology PCB boards containing a small number of through hole joints or components.  You can use a selective solder machine to replace more time-consuming and expensive systems using wave or hand soldering with fixtures – systems that are also not as repeatable.

Vector Selective Soldering Machines

Mini Selective solder machine  base on Electromagnetic solder pump. While electromagnetic solder pumps used for selective soldering have several functional advantages, at the same time they inherently have several limitations.


  • No moving parts in contact with solder
  • stable wave height
  • maintenance free
  • better than impeller solder pumps
  • standup better to lead-free solder alloys than impeller solder pumps
  • low nitrogen consumption
  • do not wear out
  • low cost
  • Generates less dross
  • Compact and easy to package inside machine

This project uses  solder pot base on  Electromagnetic solder pump    link
