New models of JBC cartridges, more soldering solutions.

The wide range of JBC cartridges has been extended with four new models. Three of them specially designed for soldering cables and connections.

C245-761

 This is the bent version of the cartridge C245-061, which has a screwdriver shape.
Its geometry allows to reach components that the straight version can not.

C470-043 

It is perfect to solder cables of Ø1mm maximum.
It is also suitable to solder rows of pins of Ø1mm maximum up to a total length of 10mm (which is the width of the tip).

New Demonstration Room Now Complete

The new Kaisertech demonstration room is now complete with the New Yamaha YS12F Pick & Place machine being the main focal point. Before the room was finished the first demo Yamaha machine was sold and its replacement will arrive shortly.

Other items now in the demo room are JCB soldering and rework units, Purex fume extraction systems, Digital vision systems and microscopes and ESD protection stations.

Apart from on-going demonstrations, Kaisertech plan to hold the first seminar on the JBC range of products. This seminar will show how to use the JBC tools for rework of PBC, Tip care and JBC software.  Invitations will be going out shortly, however you can register on line your interest by using the ‘contact us’ tab on Kaisertech’s website and adding JBC seminar in the comments box.  Details of dates and times regarding the seminar will then be forwarded to you.

Tip Extraction Machine Can Handle 50 Manual Solderers!

Purex International Ltd - the UK based leading manufacturer of high performance fume extractors has developed the 200i-HP. With its high powered blower, this extractor can cater for up to 50 soldering irons and has other capabilities such as automatic electronic flow control, gas and particle sensors, patented filter technology and Digital graphic display.

When soldering without extraction, solder and flux fumes are likely to enter the breathing zone of the solderer, this can cause occupational asthma and irritation to the respiratory tract if inhaled.

The 200i-HP tip extraction machine extracts the fume from the source ensuring no hazardous fumes are inhaled by the worker.

This unit is precision made from stainless steel and features a high powered blower to draw contaminated fumes away from the workers breathing zone.

The fumes are then passed through a patented Labyrinth pre-filter to remove larger particles and then through a 2-stage filter system which removes harmful sub-micronic particles and gases before clean, filtered air is returned to the workplace.

What’s the most recommended type of wool for cleaning soldering Tips?

Brass wool: Although less aggressive than the Inox Wool, it is easily subject to breaking down. This can cause metal particles and fibers to contaminate the enviroment of the working area. We have a very large and experienced customer that refuse the use of Brass Wool technique for this reason. Brass wool was first used in the industry many years ago and, as sometimes happens, it became an industry standard and adopted by many vendors.

Inox Wool: It is more agressive than the Brass wool and may require more restraint from the operator when using. This method proves to be the most effective when the user applies less aggressiveness and minimizes the abrasions – Less Is Better. Apart from being more effective with controlled use, Inox is much more durable than Brass. It is more flexible, less fragile, and as a result, reduces broken particles and contamination. In our testing we found it very resistant to breakage and less than 10X broken particles were found than with Brass wool.

New Demonstration Room Near Completion

The builders have finished and the Yamaha YS12F Pick & Place machine has been moved into position ready to be commissioned in the next couple of days. Also a Promass PCB loader has arrived and will be commissioned along with the Yamaha YS12F Pick & Place.

Yamaha YS12F

Other items ready to be installed are the Purex SYS400 extraction unit, JBC Rework units and Meiji Vision Systems. Other items such as the Hirox 3D Digital Microscope will be on display later on in the year.

premiumOnce the demonstration room is open Kaisertech plan to arrange regular seminars and open days. Specialist   speakers will be invited to talk about various subjects and demonstrate the related equipment.

Purex System 200

It is anticipated that the first seminar will take place in June where a range of Yamaha assembly equipment and JBC rework equipment will be on show, and guest speakers from these companies will be attending to introduce and demonstrate their range.

 

 

Soldering temperatures

Which is the suggested soldering temperature in lead free processes? Our experience shows that 90% of solder joints using JBC tools can be performed successfully at 350ºC or less, in any case it is not recommended to exceed 370ºC.

Why is it possible to solder at lower using a JBC tool? It is possible because the tip has an extremely fast thermal response.

On a conventional iron’s tip there is a strong drop in temperature while the tip is transferring the heat to the board. If the thermal response is slow, the tip does not have the time to recover the temperature, especially if a series of solder joint is performed. This is the reason why the operator is used to select a higher temperature, resulting in short tip life and PCB / component damage.

Which are the advantages of soldering at lower temperature?

- The tips last much longer because of reduced oxidation. This improves the 'wettability' of the tip and therefore also the heat transfer efficiency.

- The flux does not burn directly on the tip, but is activated while soldering. In this way, the tip does not turn dark so quickly and its wettability is better.

- The risk of damaging components and pcb through excessive heat transfer is minimised.

- The process quality is optimized because there are less rework issues and scraps.

Which is the suggested sleep temperature? The factory setting of 220ºC is adecuate for most situations. At this temperature oxidation is lowered to a minimum and ramp up to work temperature, when the tool is taken out of it's stand, will be completed in about a second.

Prolonging JBC Soldering Tip Life

Are you finding your Tips are not lasting as long as you think they should - heres some tips to help you out!

-Our experience shows that 90% of solder joints using JBC tools can be performed successfully at 350ºC (660ºF), in any case it is not recommended to exceed 370ºC (700ºF).

-The force applied on a soldering iron should not be more that it’s own weight.

-To prevent the tip from oxidizing and corroding fresh solder should be added before putting the iron back in its stand.

-Adapt the tip size correctly to the solder joint.

-Do not apply abrasive surfaces to clean the plated area.

-Use a mild flux.

-Keep sponges clean and damp, not swamped.

-Only use original JBC sponges; other sponges may contain substances that reduce tip life.

-Use distilled/de-ionized water and avoid tap water; tap water contains substances that reduce tip life.

-Only use tip re-tinner when absolutely necessary; when the tip is oxidized and cannot be cleaned using the sponge or other non agressive cleaning methods.
