The Jade 500 machine at Bryndleigh is a selective-soldering (as opposed to flow-soldering) machine which is programmed but the operator (me in this instance) to take the shortest route using the least solder nozzel changes as possible in order to assemble a PCB which cannot for various reasons under-go flow machine soldering.

The problem with the lack of support with larger boards which are mounted on the Jade are:
And last but probably most significantly:

  • Repeatability of soldering program !
  • Some more stuff here
