If in trouble of bridging while drag soldering:

Shape BCM/CM having the hollow with its surface is recommended. It is also suitable for correcting bridging.

How to use Shape BCM/CM and examples

The hollow is the secret to prevent bridging.


If bridging occurs:

The various shapes are available for correcting bridging. For further details, see the following page which also introduces the causes of bridging.

Correcting Bridging

Tough condition showing in the photo is easily corrected by selecting the best tip shape for the trouble.

Use Shape BCM/CM

This shape has the hollow section to its cut face, providing high solder retention capability. It offers other recommended usages.

Use it for drag soldering.

Feed solder on a hollow section and drag the tip along slowly.

See the movie for further details,


Use Shape BC/C

This type has a shape like a cone or column cut at a slant. It offers other recommended usages.

Use it for drag soldering.

Put the cut surface to the leads and drag it slowly.
