Equipment

Inert Wave Soldering Technology

Inert wave soldering technology is a retrofit kit for a wave soldering system that provides lower cost, reduced nitrogen consumption and improved oxygen levels to reduce dross at a higher percentage, while eliminating the need to add powders that may cause maintenance issues. It reduces cost by reducing dross formation, number of defects and improves solder wetting and reduces overall cost of ownership.
