Simple secure selective soldering!

Connect, switch on, solder! With the SMARTFLOW 2020, which was presented for the first time at the SMT in Nuremberg, Ersa is extending its selective soldering portfolio, which is a leader all over the world, by a further high-performance system. With an unbeatable price/performance ratio and a utility space of less than 2.5 m², it can be integrated in the best possible way into a production environment with cell production.

In the development of the SMARTFLOW 2020, the requirements were low investments for the customer, a simple and at the same time intuitive operation and a component quality as guaranteed by high-end systems of the VERSAFLOW family. In the end, Ersa presented a system which provides the user with a favourably priced entrance into the world of automated selective soldering on the highest technical level. The new "small one" from Ersa is the obvious proof of the fact that favourably priced design and maximum quality requirements are well and truly compatible. Small, but fine, the SMARTFLOW 2020 is the ideal and flexible system for low quantities and/or small productions. The "plug and play" concept puts the users in a position to commission and to operate their SMARTFLOW without any training.

Tried and tested VERSAFLOW selective soldering technology

The SMARTFLOW 2020 – despite compact dimensions, the universal mask incorporation grabs the maximum component size of 508 x 508 mm (20 x 20‘‘) – works with the same tried and tested Ersa selective soldering technology of the large VERSAFLOW systems in all process steps and makes no compromises as far as quality and precision are concerned. The fluxer works with maximum positioning precision and a minimum application quantity. Process security is ensured by features like diffuser spray monitoring or a process camera. Like the VERSAFLOW product family, the SMARTFLOW 2020 has preheating over the entire surface. The lower heating has been equipped with eight sprays, which are switched in groups in order to adapt the performance to energy requirements and component size. The upper heating has been optimally matched to the lower heating – this ensures effective and reproducible through heating, even with extremely demanding components such as multi-layer or heavy mass.

The SMARTFLOW 2020 has been equipped with the completely new development of the ERSAsoft 5 machine software, which is convincing with an user-orientated surface and ultra-modern visualisation. Machine data and information can be provided individualised for the user. A further highlight is the "picture in picture" function, which provides a live picture of the soldering process parallel on the 24" touch monitor in interaction with the process observation camera.


Secure Investment in the Future of Electronic Production


With the SMARTFLOW 2020, the user has a modern selective soldering system fulfilling the highest-quality industry standards, which stakes on a tried and tested technique for maximum requirements in fluxing, preheating and soldering – be in it 3-shift operation or seven days a week. The innovative design of the system combined with low maintenance requirements and very good accessibility of the functional modules guarantees a very high availability of the soldering system.


Extremely low consumption figures for nitrogen, flux, solder and energy enable economic operation with low operating costs. A modern control technology permits simple operation, interlinking of the system in MES/ERP architectures, offline programming and the possibility of remote maintenance. Equipped with all these benefits, the SMARTFLOW 2020 is a secure investment in the future of electronic production – also yours! Our small compact machine provides quality like a large one. As you can expect from the market leader Ersa with more than 1,500 selective soldering systems installed all over the world!
