Induction Soldering of RF Cable to Aluminum.jpg

A communications electronics company is looking to improve cycle time and repeatability with an induction heating system. The soldered assembly is an antenna that boosts signal.

Industry: Electrical Components

Equipment:

This induction soldering application requires an induction heating power supply that ranges between 2 to 5 kW.  The UltraHeat SM – 5 kW induction heating system is the most efficient and cost-effective choice.

Process:

Aluminum cups are very light and need to be well secured to prevent displacement due to Lorenz force. A key requirement is to achieve a clean solder joint on both the inside and outside the joint. Preform rings are wrapped around the top cup and due to proximity constraints, the bottom cup is soldered with hand-fed alloy. The soldering process is completed in 30 seconds, at the temperature of 800 F (426°C) and the power of 4.2 kW.

Benefits:

Induction heating equipment provides precise control over the process resulting in clean solder joints, increased yields, and repeatability.
