With over 700 systems sold worldwide the Quicksilver Vertical leveling system has been setting the standard for more than 25 years. Now, after 10 years of field testing, Quicksilver has been developed to achieve exceptional results using lead free solder.

Assemblers and Board fabricators will be pleased to know that flatter and more uniform surface finishes have been made possible due to the Quicksilver’s unique enhancements. These include: New patented tip design, allowing improved hole clearing while achieving a thicker minimum thickness. DDS (double dip system), panel dependent this provision permits the operator the ability to immerse the product twice and energise the air knives during the final withdrawal. An inverter driven dual speed solder pump. During panel processing the pump speed is increased, providing improved solder flow across the panel surfaces. When idle, the pump speed is automatically reduced, thereby minimizing solder dross.

Available in a stylish new colour that differentiates it from the SnPb systems, in either a 610 mm (24") or 760 mm (30") depth of solder pot. Both models have up-rated heating systems to accommodate the higher solder and air knife operating temperatures. Other features include a environmental enclosure for improved fume and noise protection, highly efficient combined air knife/heat exchanger and easy clean solder pump.

Why should you choose Quicksilver over our competitors?


A wall or stand (optional) mounted console houses the main controls for solder and airknife temperature, plus run and standby setting. Operator controls for start, insertion/withdrawal speeds, panel speed indicator, air knife pressure and emergency return are all positioned within easy reach. The design of the solder pump, air knife chamber and extract ducts ensures that spent oils and fluxes are automatically expelled from the pump tank to an external reservoir, and cannot leak out of the system.


The cover system design is compact and easily removable for maintenance and cleaning. It provides improved fume and noise protection for the operator, ensuring that emissions are confined to the exhaust system. The automatic door is cycled as the panel is immersed and withdrawn from the solder pot.

A patented design using cast iron aluminium and nitrided titanium, the airknives are mounted within an insulated stainless steel chamber. The chamber is pivoted and counter balanced, allowing the complete twin air knife assembly to be raised, quickly and easily for airknife tip cleaning and solder pot maintenance. The airknife design incorporates horizontal leveling technology as used with the 'Alchemy' leveler. The tip set can be removed and replaced via an aperture in the cover plate in less than 15 minutes.


The rigid arms of the profile clamp mechan
ism hold a routed board by its edges, permitting panels with circuitry up to the periphery of the panel to be easily processed. The mechanism offers the additional benefit that panels are accurately located and guided between the airknives during withdrawal from the solder pot, thus ensuring an even more uniform surface coating. Other arms are available for flexible circuits, which tension the circuit during the leveling process


An optional hole punch provides a fast and accurate means of punching the panel mounting slots relative to the panel edge which must be accurate to +0mm/-0.5mm (+0" / -0.02")
An optional wall/floor mounted extraction unit provides efficient removal of exhaust emissions.
