Nihon Superior Wins 2020 IPC APEX EXPO Innovation Award for New Flux-Cored Solder Wire

Feb 06, 2020

Nihon Superior Co. Ltd. was awarded an IPC APEX EXPO 2020 Innovation Awardon Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020 during the opening keynote. 

A panel of industry experts rated and scored each product and assigned a numerical value to each submitted product based on the following criteria: How is this product innovative?  How is this product changing the manufacturing industry?  What value will customers experience with this new product?

When a solder joint is made with a soldering iron, the tin reacts with the iron plating on the tip, gradually eroding it.  Eventually the underlaying copper is exposed resulting in damage to the tip.  TipSave N slows this erosion, extending the tip life by 3X and reducing the replacement cost of soldering tips.

Paired with the (032) no-clean, halogen-free cored-flux, it provides fast wetting and low spattering.TipSave Nis a good match for hand soldering as well as continuous robotic solderingas it reduces required soldering tip change overs, increasing production while reducing cost.

The IPC APEX EXPO Innovation Awards celebration of the innovators and forward thinkers who are changing the technological landscape of the electronics industry.

Nihon Superior continues to offer solutions to the challenges facing the electronics industry, such as improvements in reliability, thermally stable joining, and lead-free die attach.

Nihon Superior was founded in 1966 when it began marketing unique flux products imported from the US. The company made its mark on society by gathering the most advanced soldering and brazing technologies and products from around the world, and supplying them to companies in the metal-joining industry. A turning point for the company came when it started developing its own soldering materials and with the success of its unique SN100C lead-free solder alloy Nihon Superior has become a major player in the global market. To support the growing demand for its products, Nihon Superior has established manufacturing and sales centers in Japan, China and other Asian countries, and the United States, and formed business partnerships with companies in other markets.
