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.
