Iron soldering as a tool for soft soldering has been state of the art for decades. This process can be automated taking into account important criteria. An important criteria is the contact pressure between the soldering iron and the soldering joint to ensure a constant heat transmission.
For this Wolf developed the patented Quick-Step procedure. At iron soldering the flux is fed through one or more flux cores in the soldering wire. The solder joint is heated by the soldering tip and the solder is conducted to the soldering joint.
- Patented Quickstep-procedure for solder joint positioning
- Defined contact pressure of the soldering tip in horizontal and vertical direction
- Also suitable for difficult to access soldering joints
- Hybrid soldering
Hybrid soldering combines the advantage of both soldering processes, the laser soldering and piston soldering process. A single laser with a power of 10 watt is integrated in the soldering tool and can be aimed directly at the soldering joint or the soldering tip.
Due to this additional energy input particularly the drop in temperature of the soldering tip when contacting the soldering joint is compensated. A further advantage exists by the use of lead-free solder. Here the necessary high temperature of the soldering tip for the process can be reduced and consequently the durability of the soldering tip can be extended.
