Nihon Superior Wins Innovation Award for New Flux-Cored Solder Wire


Reading time ( words)

Nihon Superior Co. Ltd., an advanced joining material supplier, was awarded an IPC APEX EXPO 2020 Innovation Award on Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020 during the opening keynote.

A panel of industry experts rated and scored each product and assigned a numerical value to each submitted product based on the following criteria: How is this product innovative? How is this product changing the manufacturing industry? What value will customers experience with this new product?

When a solder joint is made with a soldering iron, the tin reacts with the iron plating on the tip, gradually eroding it. Eventually the underlaying copper is exposed resulting in damage to the tip. TipSave N slows this erosion, extending the tip life by 3X and reducing the replacement cost of soldering tips.

Paired with the (032) no-clean, halogen-free cored-flux, it provides fast wetting and low spattering. TipSave N is a good match for hand soldering as well as continuous robotic soldering as it reduces required soldering tip change overs, increasing production while reducing cost.

The IPC APEX EXPO Innovation Awards celebration of the innovators and forward thinkers who are changing the technological landscape of the electronics industry.

Nihon Superior continues to offer solutions to the challenges facing the electronics industry, such as improvements in reliability, thermally stable joining, and lead-free die attach.
