I am excited, this is my first blog post -ever. I am excited that it is a technical blog of Indium Corporation.
My story is very interesting; a common village boy has grown to become part of a BIG corporation in which everyone is obsessed with soldering! It was my passion to learn electronics assembly techniques 10 years ago. I strived and spent many sleepless nights on this – I would say on SMT. When our Marcom Superstar Anita told me about the blogging opportunity I was really excited… how would I…? Anyway I am here!
My two cents on soldering… although soldering process looks simple and any one can define with a single sentence; it is not a simple process. It is comprised of chemical, physical, and metallurgical process and deals with fluxing, melting of alloy, wetting, spreading, surface tension, coalescence, wicking, intermetallic growth/bonding, time above liquidus (TAL), cooling down for smooth grain structure etc.
We will have more discussions in upcoming post; stay hungry, stay foolish!
