Why Fume Extraction?
Many work environments today, including soldering, adhesives, welding and laser applications, create particles and gases that can be harmful to the work place and the environment. Most people thought that the move to leadfree soldering would be more nature friendly. In reality lead-free soldering smoke emissions contain more breathable fine dust particles. More and smaller particles are produced due to the higher working temperatures required and because more flux is used in the soldering process. Read more
How to Solder Electronic Components?
Soldering as an art stretches back over 4000 years. Remnants of silver soldered joints have even been found on vases dating back to 2000 –3000 BC.Soldering as a science developed during the 19th century. Soft soldering with lead and lead alloys has been practised by craftsmen for centuries. Due to the invention of the can around 1900, a specific alloy of tin and lead came to be used as the solder. By exactly matching the respective quantities of tin and lead, it was possible not only to completely seal the cans effectively but also to explain the connections scientifically. Read more
