Flux-cored wire just 0,1 mm in diameter

24 November 2021 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Indium Corporation has expanded its manufacturing capabilities to include a fine-diameter (0,1 mm) flux-cored wire made with select lead-free alloys to help customers meet the progressively demanding requirements of fine-pitch applications.

This new offering is designed to provide a fine-wire solution to customers dealing with increased solder joint density and miniaturisation in applications where solder paste reflow and other soldering approaches are not effective, such as robotic soldering for fine-pitch attachment of small components to medical devices or fine-pitch PCB assemblies. Hand soldering and rework with this new fine-diameter wire may be possible for very skilled operators.

Fluxes recommended for this new fine diameter are Indium’s Core 230-RC, an award-winning low-spatter wire that exhibits excellent performance in robotic soldering applications and CW-807, a flux-cored wire formulated for general-purpose electronics soldering with a clear residue.

The fine-diameter wire is available in the following alloys:

• SAC305

• SAC387

• Sn96.5Ag3.5

• Sn96.3Ag3.7

• Sn96Ag4
