Induction head

The mta induction soldering head is typically used in applications with a high thermal mass that require more heat. Other heating methods must allow time for the heat to migrate from outside-in; whereas, the induction system is able to create heat with the part to greatly reduce process time.

The induction head can be integrated on any of our mta standard soldering platforms including: MRC500, TR300, OEM and station.

The main features of our induction head include:

  • Quick heats parts with high thermal mass
  • The coil can be shaped specifc to the application
  • Solid-state control
  • Non-contact soldering
  • Jam-free wire feeder is mounted directly on the head to provide tight process control
  • Suitable for brazing (hard alloy)
  • Non-conductive parts of the components to be soldered are not heated by the induction
  • Lead free compatible

7 reasons to choose the mta induction soldering head

  1. Inductive soldering can quickly and safely heat high mass parts such as heavy copper boards, multi-layer boards, large cable terminals, non-electronic parts, and many others.
  2. Inductive fields penetrate the material creating heat form inside-out for deep uniform heat distribution that does not burn the outer surface. By contrast, other technologies push heat from the outside-inward, and excessive heat on the surface can potentially damage the part before the heat moves inward.
  3. The robust head structure is machined from solid material – not stamped sheet metal or die-cast part – to provide a rigid platform for the iron and wire feeder.
  4. The machined clamping system offers easy adjustment and precise alignment. Once tightened, the position is fixed and will not change until loosened – there is no risk of accidental misalignment as a result of heavy use.
  5. The precise jam-free wire feeder is mounted on the head – directly at the solder joint.  This provides tight process control of the amount of wire fed.  The wire can be pulled out of the solder pool to prevent solder spatter.  Since there is no long feed tube, the solder wire does not kink or get jammed.
  6. Integrated fume extraction nozzle mounted directly above the solder joint safely removes fumes.
  7. Very low consumables – no iron tips or cleaning sponges, and gas is produced from electrolysis of distilled water.
