Hardware industries may not be the center of attention on a daily basis, but they're still the silent backbone of the economy; however great our software products or consultancy work may be, we wouldn't be in a position to comfortably get on with our day-to-day lives if it were not for places properly equipped for this or roads to get us swiftly and safely to required destinations.
Iron soldering has been around pretty much the same time as has iron, with the earliest pieces of proof that human has tried to concoct different alloys and metals together in Mesopotamia some 5,000 years ago. One of the up-and-coming practices in this area comes from Thermaltronics, a company that puts physics to good use in order to bring more accuracy to the soldering process.
The Curie Magnetic Effect
Thermaltronics soldering irons use Curie Heat Technology, which is based upon the Curie-Weiss law, which describes the change in magnetic status of certain types of metal when they are heated up to their Curie Point. In other words, this allows for a more precise control over heating points and, as a result, of magnetic properties, by constantly being able to monitor the state of magnetism of the irons being soldered. A need for a more precise type of soldering is required when it comes to putting together small pieces, such as in high-end electronic equipment, as well as in the case of conductive components being soldered, the heat of which is likely to fluctuate. While traditional soldering uses sensors to verify temperature while soldering, what Thermaltronics is doing is using iron alloys to control the heating point.
Thermaltronics markets a series of soldering equipment with prices starting in the hundreds of dollars. The company will be present in series of events showcasing their work, so if you're in that area expertise, you should definitely pay them a visit.
