As an important branch and core sub-industry of the electronics industry, the connector industry is one of the most widely used electronic components. It is widely used in computers, telecommunications, network communications, home appliances, industrial electronics, aerospace and automotive electronics, etc. Huge, important product status, a wide range of downstream applications. The overall development characteristics of the connector industry are: high-speed, digital, and integrated signal transmission; small size, narrow pitch, and multi-function of the product volume; convenience of plugging and modularization; and low cost of the product.
With the increasingly obvious trend of high-tech, miniaturization and high-performance electronic products, people's requirements for connectors have become higher and higher, resulting in higher welding requirements for some connectors, which cannot be met by traditional welding methods. Demand, laser soldering as a non-contact processing method is increasingly favored by manufacturers.
The main applications of lasers in the connector industry are: marking, welding (fusion welding and soldering). According to the product process requirements, we can provide a full range of laser system solutions including laser marking, laser sub-board, laser welding, laser soldering, laser curing, etc., with a fully modular design, directly connected to the automated production line to achieve stand-alone or online Operations, improve the versatility and convenience of equipment, save manufacturing costs, and improve the cost-effectiveness of the equipment's full life.
Laser soldering can be used to supplement the traditional method. For example, in the welding of DisplayPort wires, due to the particularity of the wires, manual soldering and hot-press welding cannot perfectly solve their welding problems. The advantages of lasers are highlighted. Non-contact and single-point welding can solve most of its problems, and it can also solve the problem of solder joint temperature control.
With the shift in the focus of international connector manufacturing to mainland China, the connector industry in China will continue to grow. In the past, the connector in China was biased towards the low-end segment, but in recent years, with the rise of domestic manufacturers and technology gaps The shrinkage of the industry is moving towards the high-end field, and the application of laser soldering in connectors will become more and more important.
