Induction Soldering Wires Onto Connection With IGBT Induction Heating Units
Objective Heat connector assemblies for soldering
Material Device assembly
Tin plated brass terminals Solder paste
Temperature 500°F (260°C) 5-7 seconds
Frequency 360 kHz
Equipment DW-UHF-6kW induction heating system equipped with a remote heat station, containing two 0.66 μF capacitor. An induction heating coil designed and developed specifically for this application.
Process A single turn helical coil is used to heat the solder paste. The connectors are placed inside the induction heating coil and RF power is applied for 5-7 seconds until the connector heats.
Solder paste is applied to the joint in two ways, stick-fed or manually.
Results/Benefits • Compared to using a manual soldering iron, induction heating precisely applies heat to for higher quality solder joints
• This is ideal for integrating with an automated system. By stick- feeding the solder more aesthetically pleasing parts are produced.
