Its Design

compact- economical - low maintenance

For low volume  

The Pillarhouse PILOT machine has been designed as an entry level, benchtop machine for small to medium batch manufacturers combining high levels of production flexibility with economic running costs.  

Programming is child's play  

Can you point and click? Then you can program. Set your parameters for your solderpin and push the start button. That's it. 

Use it anywhere, anytime 

The machine needs only 900x700 mm floorspace,  can be placed on a table or on the roller case, and with a solderpot volume of only 6kg can be ready to go in no time.    

Its Performance

mirror shiny soldering - no residues - full control 

Horizontal PCB 

The PCB is loaded in slide in/out carrier and kept fully horizontal as it moves in three axes over the fluxer and soldernozzle.  It allows accurate soldering and helps to prevent components from tilting. 

Patented Technology

Although a low cost system, the PILOT is offered with the ability to run the acclaimed highly flexible Pillarhouse AP nozzle technology, together with our patented market leading 1.5mm micro nozzle.

Pre-heating comes naturally 

The use of our hot Nitrogen curtain provides an inert atmosphere and also assists in the prevention of oxidation and provides a local preheat to the joint, thus reducing thermal shock to components.

a word from the customers

HMD Engineering

HMD produces small volume batches where most of the components are SMD,  but in order to assure that those few thru hole components get soldered correctly it uses the Pillarhouse PILOT.
