FAQs

Contact Soldering (Desktop and Inline Apps)


Q: What are the advantages of contact soldering?
A: Consistently high quality joints, lower operator skill, up to 2x productivity.

Q: Is robotic soldering faster than hand soldering?
A: Yes, a robotic soldering process is typically faster because an operator can load while the robot is simultaneously soldering.

Q: I have a high product mix. How do I address fixturing?
A: Fancort is an expert fixture designer with the ability to develop quick change and flexible fixturing options.

Q: Does Japan Unix/Fancort offer custom and in-line turn-key solutions?
A: Absolutely, Japan Unix and Fancort can both offer solutions for high volume processes including assembly, dispense, screw driving, inspection and other ancillary processes.

Q: What is the typical Japan Unix tip life? How much do tips costs?
A: Japan Unix tips provide industry-leading tip life in the range of 20,000 — 25,000 hits depending on the application. Tips are typically half the cost of competitive offerings with integrated heating elements.

Q: How do I determine if my application is a good candidate for robotic soldering?
A: Fancort offers free application reviews. If the process meets our standards then we proceed to a consultative proof of concept phase where we may run samples and develop fixturing concepts.
