Choosing Cored Wire for Robotic Soldering
Robotic soldering has helped improve the process of small and large scale PCB (printed circuit board) manufacturing while keeping production and labor costs low. Robotics has helped boost productivity, reduce rework, and improve the quality of electronic components and products, too, as it minimized or completely eliminated common issues in soldering, like s...

Know More about Energy Efficient Led Lighting
The technology that went into the invention of the very first light bulbs is becoming obsolete in the world of today. Sodium vapor bulbs, metal halide lights and incandescent bulbs are officially being phased out from use. All this has happened because of the invention and popularity of LEDs. This article will help you know more about LED lighting and its en...

Lead-Bearing Solder Paste Applications
Solder paste is necessary in the manufacturing of PCBs (printed circuit boards), as it is used to connect the surface mount components to the pads on the PCB. It acts like an adhesive or a glue that ensures surface mount parts are secure on the board. Besides holding the PCB components in place, a good solder paste also ensures an excellent electronic bond b...

Safety Guidelines to Follow When Handling Liquid Soldering Flux
Liquid soldering flux is important in the SMT (surface mount technology) process when soldering electronic or electrical components because it enables solder to adhere to the metal while eliminating oxide buildup. It also helps spread the solder while minimizing surface tension and ensures defect-free soldering. Liquid soldering flux may contain rosin, a sub...

Solder Alloys?How to Select the Best Option for Your PCB Assembly
Not all solders are created equal. Each alloy type has a specific temperature specification and is suited to a specific set of applications. Choosing the right solder alloy can make or break your PCB assembly, affecting the reliability, accuracy and performance of the circuit board being manufactured as well as the cost effectiveness of your overall operatio...

Importance of Low Temperature Soldering Process
Low temperature soldering is used in applications where temperature sensitive components are involved. Low temperature soldering is ideal where higher reflow temperatures may cause failures. The melting temperatures for soldering alloys used in the soldering process often range between 47°C to 1064°C. Low temperature soldering alloys usually melt at ...

Benefits of Liquid soldering flux
Liquid solder flux is necessary in the soldering process, since solder does not always adhere properly to components because of the impurities and oxide buildup during soldering, resulting in poorly soldered joints, bridging, absence of joints and other soldering defects. Liquid soldering flux is an agent that fixes bonding issues, and with the right tempera...

Low Temperature Solder for PCB Assembly - The Need, the Benefits and the Options
With the increased penetration of modern consumer electronics in the market, such as mobile phones and music devices, the general push for product development has been largely focused on miniaturization. And as electronic components get smaller and smaller, the commercial world is also moving steadily towards the goal of sustainable and eco-friendly growth -...

Solder Balls and their Negative Effect on the PCB Assembly Process
If you are a PCB manufacturer, the word ‘solder balls’ must be extremely familiar to you. In fact, you have likely marked the phenomenon of solder ball formation as one of the greatest challenges of your SMT reflow process. The issue is fairly common and can be caused by a host of different factors, mainly poor process conditions, and can genuine...

Things to Know About Using Lead-Free Solder Paste
Solder typically contains lead but, due to safety concerns, manufacturers of electronic products and devices are switching to lead-free solder pastes. Certain applications may require lead-free solder paste for PCB assembly in handheld electronic devices (i.e. tablets and smartphones), consumer electronics, automotive systems, military and medical equipment,...
