Making Solder Preforms - Extrusion and Rolling
At this point in our process we have a produced the exact alloy that you have requested. But, a large piece of solder isn’t going to help you assemble microelectronics components. We need to start manipulating the solder into a usable form; in this case a preform. NEXT STEP: The freshly-alloyed…
Making Solder Preforms: Alloying
When it comes to manufacturing solder preforms, alloying solder is an important first step in providing consistent final parts. This is the step where the bulk physical properties are, more or less, set. Strict attention to the percentage of each element (including impurities and dopants) helps provide…
