Indium Introduces New Fast-Wetting, No-Clean Flux-Cored Wire for Robotic and Manual Soldering


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation announces that it is now offering CW-818, a uniquely formulated no-clean, high-reliability flux-cored wire designed to minimize cycle times in manual and robotic soldering processes while delivering top tier soldering speed and spread. 

Designed to meet the requirements of manual and robotic soldering processes, Indium Corporation’s halide-free CW-818 combines superior soldering speed and spread with improved overall cleanliness (with clear/light-colored residue, charring resistance, and spatter control technology) to deliver a flux-cored wire with enhanced cleanliness, even at higher soldering iron tip temperatures.

CW-818 excels in manual and robotic soldering applications where the J-STD-004C high-reliability category is desired or required; or applications where extra wetting power is needed to achieve a higher throughput.

Indium Corporation’s CW-818 is also:

  • Compatible with Pb-free and SnPb alloys
  • Compatible with HASL, Immersion Silver, ENIG, and OSP surface finishes
  • A good choice for legacy processes requiring an RMA-strength product.

I recently spoke with Rob Boguski, president of Fremont, California-based Datest and an SMTA vice president and board member. Rob explained why today’s test customers are asking for more information than the traditional pass/fail, offers a preview of SMTA International, and gives an update on SMTA’s planning strategy for the next five years.

Four Silver Linings in the Stormy Clouds of Pandemic, Supply Chain, and Inflation

09/14/2022 | Dr. Ronald C. Lasky, Indium Corp.
It may be difficult to see any bright spots in the current and recent economic situation. We have all experienced the devastation of the pandemic, supply chain issues, and most recently, inflation. However, as a senior technologist for an international materials supplier (Indium Corporation) and a professor of engineering at an Ivy League research university (Dartmouth College), I offer these four silver linings for those of us in the electronics industry.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.
