Indium Corporation offers flux cored solder wire used in hand soldering and automated processes during photovoltaic module assembly operations. CW-807 is a standard no-clean flux with clear residues and is available with Sn/Pb, Sn/Pb/Ag and SAC305. Manufactured at Indium's Chicago facility, which employs the most modern equipment and experienced work force, our flux-cored wire is void-free, made with tight dimensional tolerances, operator friendly and widely adopted by PV module manufacturers worldwide.
Solder Wire from the Indium Corporation is made to demanding quality standards. Our flexible manufacturing process allows us to fulfill orders from evaluation/research quantities to full scale production volumes. We offer over 100 alloys in various diameters.
Indium Corporation solder preforms are used extensively in CPV applications to mount III-V silicon dies, bypass diodes and to provide a metallic thermal interface when mounting CPV receiver substrates to a heatsink. Our solder preforms are in the field today in thousands of CPV modules around the world and standup to IEC standards including CPV thermal cycling demands.
Preforms come in custom and standard shapes such as squares, rectangles, washers and discs. Dimensions can be held to tight tolerances to assure volume accuracy.
A wide assortment of alloys is available in liquidus temperatures that range from 47°C to 1063°C. Alloys can be indium-contained, gold-contained, lead-free, fusible or standard tin-lead, as well as many others.

I mentioned, in my last post, that preheating is needed to decrease wave soldering cost. With trying to decrease the cost of the wave soldering process there have been many different types of preheaters that have been developed, each with advantages and disadvantages. The most commonly used forms of…
It sounds bad for me to say this, but I have a lot of SMT magazines cross my desk and, honestly, the solder paste articles rarely draw my interest. I work in a world of solder preforms and that’s really where my mind is at, currently. A recent exception is a paper written by Eric Bastow (Assistant…
Many of my posts have been discussing the different types of wave soldering fluxers: their capabilities and their shortcomings. This section will be similar, except preheaters will be discussed. But first, a quick introduction. The definition…
