Abstract
Currently available soldering and heat gun systems have several significant deficiencies that can result in lower quality repairs and higher maintenance costs. The existing soldering irons naturally lead to cross-contamination between leaded and lead-free solders, resulting in degraded solder joints. The existing heat guns require bulky accessories and/or external electric power, making them unwieldy and causing the repair process to be slower and more difficult. The current battery operated systems are more portable, but they have less heating capability and short operating times. In response to these needs, Accurate Automation Corporation is developing a unique tool that utilizes infrared energy to perform both non-contact soldering and heat shrinking. This innovative product will provide for lower maintenance costs and higher quality repairs by offering improved portability, longer operating time, and multifunctional capability while preventing solder cross contamination.
