How to use Shape D and examples

This shape is capable of any soldering by placing the tip end in 2 ways: line and face. Therefore it requires soldering skill such as Shape B.

Tip Shape D Line example
Line example

Shape D is also available for soldering at narrow pitches by placing the tip end in Line.
T12 series has ten kinds of Shape D which has the variation of Line width from 0.5mm to 1.2mm.

The followings introduce four works by placing the tip end in Face.
Please try the tip shape showed bellow if in trouble such as bridging, faulty fillet formation, insufficient wetting, etc.

Shape D has the special application of Heavy Duty Type.
Shape D has the special application of Long Life Type.

Soldering chip parts

Use it for soldering chip part.

Put the tip end to the land and drag the tip slowly while feeding solder.

Some IC is specified by manufacturer not to be touched electrode by tip end.

Drag soldering

Use it for drag soldering.

Put the tip end to the leads and drag it slowly.

Apply flux to leads and land pads before soldering. It prevents the troubles such as solder bridge.


See the movie for further details,
    Check the right timing to feed solder.

Pre-tinning lead wire

Use it for pre-tinning lead wire.

Put the cut surface to the lead and drag the tip slowly while feeding solder.

Point soldering

Use it for point soldering.

PTH

1. Put the tip end to the land pad and PTH at one time to heat them.
2. Feed solder to form smooth fillet on the land pad.

Soldering cup terminals

Use it for soldering cup terminals.
1. Put the cut surface to the lead and terminal at one time to heat them.
2. Feed solder to form smooth fillets.

Get rid of gold plating of terminal and pre-tin lead wire. It makes solder spread over the terminal easily and prevents soldering defect. For further information, see “Soldering cup terminals”.

Melting and removing coil coatings

Use it for melting and removing coil coatings.
1. Put the cut surface to the coil and terminal at one time to heat them.
2. Feed solder.
