Induction Soldering Wire To Aluminum Lug

Objective
The objective of this induction soldering wire to aluminum lug in under 30 seconds.

Equipment
DW-UHF-6KW-III handheld induction soldering heater
HLQ custom coil

Key Parameters
Power: 1.75 kW
Temperature: Approximately 250°C (482°F)
Time: 25 seconds

Materials
Aluminum Lug
Litz Cables

Induction Soldering Process:

In order to start the induction soldering process, the aluminum lug was placed in the center of the coil. Then the litz wire was placed into the lug along with the solder. The solder started to melt after 25 seconds at approximately 250°C (482°F). After the solder was completely melted it was left to cool for one minute before proceeding.

Results:

The tests were a success. We were able to prove that induction heating was a much faster method of induction soldering wire to aluminum lug rather than using a torch as the customer had done in the past. The application testing showed an increase in productivity and control over the time and temperature.
