Soldering is a process in which an alloy called solder is melted between metals to combine them. It is similar to brazing.
Soldering is used in electronic components, but until now, manual soldering has been the norm. In the past, soldering with an iron, in which the solder is melted by heating the tip of a small hand and attaching it to the solder, was the mainstream method.
However, in mass production, flow soldering and reflow soldering are now the most common methods of soldering.
Laser soldering is also becoming mainstream. Laser soldering is attracting attention not only for its automation but also for its ability to shorten processing time by reducing the time required to melt the solder.
There are also various other methods, and automatic soldering machine can be used for different purposes.
Automatic soldering machines are mainly used in the manufacture of electrical components.
There are two main types of automated soldering equipment: the first is flow soldering, and the second is reflow soldering.
This section describes the principle of flow soldering machines and reflow soldering machines, which are the main types of automatic soldering machines.
Since the solder cream is applied in advance to a specific area of the component, it is possible to solder only the targeted area. Therefore, unlike the flow method, the amount of solder can be easily adjusted and solder bridging is less likely to occur.
However, it is slower than the flow method, and it is also not good at rating what are called dipped parts.
