Cerno 508.1

The Cerno® 508.1 is a robust selective soldering system delivering the optimum balance between flexibility, throughput and large board size. The Cerno® 508.1 has many unique features, including combined fluxing, preheating and soldering for easy integration into batch or in-line production.

Features and Benefits

  • Integrated platform with combined fluxing, preheating and soldering ideally suited for batch or in-line selective soldering
  • Choice of single or dual drop-jet fluxers and solder pots for either simultaneous parallel or independent double processing modes
  • Parallel processing significantly increases machine throughput while double processing broadens soldering flexibility
  • Full titanium solder pots compatible with all solder alloys plus easy tool-free maintenance
  • 2segment configuration can solder two boards in-line with two segmented conveyors without boards being panelized or requiring tooling


Customers can choose between three different variants of the Cerno® 508.1 to meet a broad range of selective soldering requirements. 

Cerno® 508.1S flux, preheat and solder configuration

The Cerno® 508.1S configuration with single fluxer and solder pot provides single board processing. 

Cerno® 508.1PD flux, preheat and solder configuration

The Cerno® 508.1PD configuration with dual dropjet fluxers and dual solder pots allows for using two solder nozzles in the same soldering station or processing two boards in a panel simultaneously. The Cerno® 508.1PD is capable of processing up to 2 boards at one time. Parallel processing enables fluxing and soldering of two printed circuit boards at the same time doubling machine productivity.

The Cerno® 508.1PD 2seg, preheat and solder configuration

The Cerno® 508.1PD 2seg configuration with dual fluxers and solder pots can solder two singulated boards in a parallel mode in-line with two segmented conveyors.  This allows sequential soldering of two printed circuit boards at the same time without the need for the boards to be in a panel, to be palletized or to require tooling.
