3D Printing – We beat the cleaning challenges!

With rapidly advancing capabilities and applications, 3D printing is a key element of the manufacturing process for many industries, often rivalling the traditional manufacturing process for both speed and cost.

As the technology becomes more affordable and more accessible, the type of companies using 3D printing is changing. Industries including aerospace, automotive, healthcare and even DIY are commonly utilising this kind of additive manufacturing, but as the process becomes more accessible and the long term efficiencies outweigh the initial costs, an increasing number of businesses are turning to 3D printing.

Although many of these businesses will factor in the costs of the materials and start up costs when considering investing in a 3D printer, some may be less aware of the upkeep and maintenance required…

Are your solder tip erosion rates far too high?

Solving solder wire challenges with Koki’s 72M series

Similarly to other industrial sectors, electronics manufacturers are always looking for solutions to ongoing issues and more efficient production methods.

One such demand is the need for more cost-effective solder wires. Typically, standard un-leaded solder alloys used for hand soldering wires are very aggressive and ‘eat’ soldering iron tips. As components get smaller due to design and space limitations, soldering iron tips have become more sophisticated and much more expensive…

Are you experiencing solder joint voiding issues? Solve them with Koki’s S3X58-G803 solder paste

One of the most significant challenges in the electronics industry is the formation of voids in solder joints. Voiding typically occurs when flux or solvent in the paste becomes trapped in the joint, or paste oxidises, and empty spaces are created within the joint. Too many voids in a solder joint will impact the joint’s reliability, so it’s important this issue is avoided.

Are you struggling with poor wetting from your current solder paste?

If you’re struggling with oxidised pads and components, combat the challenge with Koki’s S3X58-M500C-7 powerful wetting, no-clean solder paste

Most engineers and operators have experienced poor solder wetting – an extremely common challenge in the electronics industry. Poor wetting can be caused by a number of different issues including low paste volume or inconsistent soldering temperatures, but mostly this is due to oxidisation or tarnishing of the solder joints caused by poorly stored or very old components, often referred to as ‘grey’ components…

Why we should pay more attention to new F Gas regulations

Regulations around the use of F-gases (also known as fluorinated gases) have become increasingly stringent over the last few years, and many businesses are unknowingly inadvertently breaking laws.

F-gas is most commonly thought of as an issue for the refrigeration and cooling industries, where their use is most prevalent. But, these gases can also be present in solvents, which affect a much wider variety of industry sectors. As a result, many businesses are unaware that these significant changes apply to them…
