Robotic Soldering

AIM’s cored solder wire for robotic soldering is engineered to promote fast thermal transfer and extend solder tip life. AIM’s solders allow high feed rates for point-to-point and drag soldering with excellent barrel fill. Post solder residue is minimal, clear and passes J-STD-004A/B and JIS AA requirements. Specialized spooling minimizes jams and drifting.

No Clean Solder Wire

AIM’s no clean cored solder wire provides excellent wetting properties combined with a wide process window, as well as superior solder penetration into plated through holes with minimal, clear residues. AIM’s no clean solder wire offerings are REACH and RoHS compliant, halogen-free and pass J-STD-004A/B and JIS AA requirements.
