Cerno 103IL

The Cerno® 103IL is a robust selective soldering system delivering an exceptional combination of versatility, productivity and value. The Cerno® 103IL has many unique features, including high speed Z-axis motion for faster processing time and reduced soldering cycle.

Features and Benefits

  • Selective soldering of printed circuit boards as large as 610 x 457 mm (24.0 x 18.0 in.)
  • Interchangeable solder pots and pumps compatible with tin-lead, lead-free and HMP solder alloy
  • Choice of single selective solder nozzle, dual selective nozzles with independent control or 75 mm wide wave soldering nozzle
  • SWAK-OS 4.0 graphics-based programming and machine control software enables fast and straightforward program creation
  • Optional in-line flux and preheat module with concurrent fluxing and preheating provides increased throughput


With its feature rich, graphics-based programming and machine control software, the Cerno® 103IL is specially designed for demanding selective soldering applications. Set-up and time to first article is significantly reduced to within 10-15 minutes. The SWAK-OS 4.0 software features seamless fiducial recognition, live teach cameras, real time data collection, SQL backend data extraction and complete FIS capability for shop floor integration.
