Wire bend? Problems with piston or laser soldering?
Are you busy troubleshooting the wiring clutter in your piston, induction or laser soldering automation daily?
Is your soldering process inaccurate due to wire feed, not reproducible or do you solder “antennas”?
Try to align your energy source, does not matter if soldering iron, induction outer circuit or laser focus, in such a way that the energy acts on the one hand in the joint partner with the highest heatsink and on the other hand in the solder wire. This allows a faster fusing of the solder wire and thus a thermal bridge between the connected partners and therefore allows for a better solder joint formation.
Please note the adjustable feed, process and withdrawal speeds of the solder wire, these three variables offer significant optimization possibilities.
If this does not help or if you want to optimize your takt time and intermetallic phase further, try pre-tinning the joints and then feed them into the soldering process with filler wire, paste or preform.
Would you like to know what your wire feed really did in the soldering process?
If you want to get data regarding your soldering process to know exactly what happens during the soldering process, we recommend you contact us regarding our SWF wire feed module – it’s worth it – it’s the world’s only “actio-reactio” based and power controlled wire feed in the world.
As there are many different solder wire applications worldwide, there are also many different challenges for which we have developed our own solutions. Contact us and we will help you to optimize your soldering process.
