Laser soldering alleviates miniaturisation issues

Laser soldering alleviates miniaturisation issues
Packing densities increase on ever smaller electronic assemblies due to technical requirements and possibilities. Accordingly, the requirements imposed on soldering these components become all the more stringent because, for instance, sensitive components have to be protected from great heat effects. Pinpoint-accurate, fast, and definable soldering is necessary. Therefore, EUTECT has been using diode lasers for its customised soldering systems.

No-clean solder pastes with low melting point

No-clean solder pastes with low melting point
Heraeus Electronics showed its range of no-clean soldering pastes with a low melting point at productronica this week. The new F498 product series is said to allow significant cost savings in the soldering process. The soldering pastes are characterized by a low void rate and outstanding wetting properties on a wide range of different surfaces. This reduces the formation of solder balls (mid-chip balling).

Hybrid flux for wave and selective soldering

Hybrid flux for wave and selective soldering
Emil Otto GmbH  has introduced an alcohol-water-based flux which is also obtainable as a granulate-based concentrate.The hybrid EO-Y-004 flux was developed for use in wave and selective soldering and exhibits a solids content of 3.5% to 3.7%. That it has been developed for use in wave and selective soldering makes it suitable for a broad range of applications.

The 411 on soldering electrical components

The 411 on soldering electrical components
Soldering is an important part of working with electronic components. In order for the necessary components to be firmly connected and for a current to flow smoothly, there is some essential equipment needed and some important techniques to master.  Author: Holger Engelbrecht (pictured), Product Manager, reichelt elektronik

Efficient enamelled-copper wire soldering

Efficient enamelled-copper wire soldering
According to EUTECT, it has been developing and manufacturing selective soldering modules for processing copper wire for many years. Now, tightening thermal requirements imposed between copper wire and connectors in sectors like the automotive supply and consumer goods industries, cause the requirements imposed on the soldering process to tighten as well. As a result, EUTECT says it is continually investing in improving its selective soldering module.
