Indium Corporation Introduces New Fast-Wetting, Low-Spatter Flux-Cored Wire for Robotic, Laser Soldering


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation announces that it is now offering CW-232, a uniquely formulated flux-cored wire that combines superior wetting speed and spread with extremely low-spatter performance.

Indium Corporation’s CW-232 is a highly activated rosin flux-cored wire developed to meet the demanding requirements of robotic and laser solder applications by delivering additional wetting power in order to achieve higher throughput. CW-232 also works exceptionally well in hand soldering applications. Due to its “no-spatter” technology, CW-232 eliminates flux spattering that can burn operators’ hands, impair the vision system of the robotic soldering machines, or make finished products less aesthetically appealing.

Indium Corporation’s CW-232 offers:

  • Extremely low-spatter performance
  • Very fast wetting, even capable of soldering to heavily tarnished surfaces
  • Light-colored residue
  • Compatible with Pb-free and SnPb alloys
  • Compatible with HASL, Immersion Silver, ENIG, and OSP surface finishes 

Indium Corporation is a premier materials refiner, smelter, manufacturer, and supplier to the global electronics, semiconductor, thin-film, and thermal management markets. Products include solders and fluxes; brazes; thermal interface materials; sputtering targets; indium, gallium, germanium, and tin metals and inorganic compounds; and NanoFoil®. Founded in 1934, the company has global technical support and factories located in China, India, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the USA.

Nolan Johnson gets an update from Tom Forsythe on KYZEN’s Tech 2 Tech sessions. These brief 15-minute sessions were set up during the pandemic by KYZEN for customers, prospects, and new engineers around cleaning, and have since found traction with their manufacturers, reps and distributors.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine—Continuous Improvement: As Simple as X = Xc – 1

01/04/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
X=Xc – 1 is a conceptual equation for continuous improvement. You define X and work to reduce it by a factor of 1. This could be one work hour, one process step, one day less in a cycle, and so on. We recently met with Dr. Ron Lasky to discuss the concept of X=Xc – 1 and get his advice on generating enthusiasm among readers and the next generation about continuous improvement. As this discussion illustrates, many process improvements are small in scale, not yearlong, major efforts.
