In all temperature ranges
For metallic force connections, the thermal process of soldering is used in many manufacturing processes. What is often still done by hand can be highly automated and implemented in a highly energy-efficient manner using induction soldering. We support you in making efficient use of all the benefits.
Induction soldering has many strengths in soft soldering up to 450 °C, in hard soldering from 450–900 °C as well as in high temperature soldering above 900 °C: Very short heating times increase the cycle times in production, because the process is easily reproducible.
Induction soldering achieves a very high degree of precision; the spot to be heated is heated precisely at the desired temperature. This results in less corrosion, especially because induction heating can be combined with the use of inert gas atmospheres for processes that are sensitive to corrosion and oxidation. In the end, less reworking or disposal is required.
Temperature efficiency is based on precise monitoring with the pyrometer, which is installed in induction systems to save space.
Where is induction soldering used?
When soldering tools, it is important that you set precisely the right temperature to create good wetting of the soldering partners with the solder. A temperature-controlled process is therefore the obvious choice here. When heating with an inductor, this is possible with precise accuracy via the connected pyrometer.
Even the hard soldering of unusual material joints, such as steel/stainless steel, can be integrated into production processes automatically and without complications using induction.
If you solder PCD plates to tools, the biggest challenge is that the temperature does not exceed a certain threshold under any circumstances, otherwise the material will be damaged. For this reason, flame is often still used here, which means that slow cycle times are the rule. With induction heating, on the other hand, the temperature can be monitored precisely with a built-in pyrometer. Fast throughput times also result from the very short heating times.
Manufacturing metal spectacle frames is profitable if you can guarantee a quick turnaround in production. Soldering with the use of an inductor enables very fast cycle times here. Here, the energy is brought to the point with the precisely matched inductor and the soldering process can be carried out with high precision.
Pyrometer-monitoring induction soldering is an easy-to-learn process and intuitive to operate, allowing for more flexible use by personnel.
In order to safely connect the electrics in the car, high-quality cable lugs that are neatly soldered are absolutely essential. In the automotive industry, and especially in the field of e-mobility, it is not only a question of safety but also of fast cycle times. You can realise this with induction soldering of cable lugs.
When soldering brass and aluminium on fittings or hydraulics, soldering with a flame often results in disturbing surface effects. This is because the heat runs away and heats up areas that can be damaged by the heat. The surface effects, in turn, require time-consuming reworking, and the reject rate is also increased as a result. And last but not least, it takes a relatively long time to heat the solder joints with the flame and costs energy. All these disadvantages are eliminated with inductive soldering.
This is how we implement the induction soldering process for you
Your process is individual and brings with it very specific requirements. That is why we first ask you what details are involved and then work out a process that fits your production exactly.
