JBC builds up its presence in China

After three days and with a meaningful upswing in attendance, productronica China drew to a close on the 16th March.

JBC has gained visibility and strengthened its presence at this electronics fair since 2012. productronica China has given the company the chance to find out how the SMT equipment could meet the changing needs of the Chinese manufacturing industry.

Within its growth strategy in the Asian country, the company is also exhibiting for the first time at the next Nepcon South China, which will be held on 29-31 August at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center.

During the three-day exhibition visitors who approached the JBC stand talked with our soldering experts and experienced our new solutions live. We’ve saved some of the best scenes from our crowded booth to share with you!

What is the correct temperature for soldering?

In most cases, the factor that most influences the duration of a tip is the working temperature.

Before the ROHS regulation (Restriction Of Hazardous Substances) came into effect on the 1st July 2006, solder wire that contained lead was permitted. After this date the use of lead was prohibited (as well as other substances) in all equipment and processes except the following: medical apparatus, monitoring and surveillance equipment, measuring instruments and equipment specifically designed for the military and space industry as well the car sector (car control systems, airbags, etc.), rail transport, etc.

The special characteristic of the most common lead alloys is that the fusion occurs at around 180°C. With the most common lead-free alloys this happen approximately at 220°C. So the difference of 40°C meant it was necessary to increase the temperature of the solder tool to achieve a solder joint in the same length of time (if soldering time is increased, then the components and the printed circuits may be damaged) and this reduced the life of the tips and increased oxidation.
