What Benefits Does Induction Soldering Offer?
Meets tight production tolerances with precise localized heat to small areas creating pinpoint accuracy
Soldering with induction increases production rates with faster heating cycles
Reduces defect rates with repeatable, reliable heat
Eliminates variability from operator-to-operator, shift-to-shift
Maintains metallurgical characteristics of the individual metals
Given the small size of the part and the assembly's geometry, a graphite cylinder was required as a susceptor.
The solder formed a relatively uniform domed seal around the fiber despite the asymmetry of the open C coil. It took under 10 seconds to heat the part to soldering temperature
Soldering with Induction takes under 10 seconds to heat four copper strips concurrently, resulting in a boost in throughput for the client. Induction is a highly repeatable process that heats just the area of the copper strip that requires it
Soldering with induction required under 10 seconds and is a highly repeatable process; the customer can expect the same result every time with only the portion of the part requiring heating being heated.
Soldering with induction proved faster than the client's previous heating torch process. It is also is a repeatable heating process, so the client gets superior results and is more energy efficient than torch heating.
A solder wire preform was placed on the part to allow for repeatable placement of solder in every joint. Four top or four bottom joints will be heated at one time within 2-3 minutes for the soldering application.
To heat a glass feed-through inside a copper block for a soldering application, one side at a time. This was a new application/process for the client.
To heat ferrule and module assemblies for a soldering application in the fiber optics industry.
Induction's precision soldering ensures repeatable results and less damage to surrounding substrates while demonstrating reduced heat loss and lower energy usage...
For this grounding lug soldering application, induction delivers consistent result is achieved each time and does not present a flame, so it helps create a safer, cooler working environment than other methods
About Induction Heating
Induction heating is a fast, efficient, precise and repeatable non-contact method for heating metals or other electrically-conductive materials. The material may be a metal such as brass, aluminum, copper or steel or it can be a semiconductor such as silicon carbide, carbon or graphite. To heat non-conductive materials such as plastics or glass, induction is used to heat an electrically-conductive susceptor, typically graphite, which then transfers the heat to the non-conducting material.

Induction Heating Work Coils
The work coil is the component in the induction heating system that defines how effective and how efficiently your work piece is heated.
