Nihon Superior Receives NPI Award for New TipSave N Flux-Cored Solder Wire

Feb 06, 2020

Nihon Superior Co. Ltd. was awarded a 2020 NPI Award in the category of Cored Wire for its new TipSave N flux-cored solder wire. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020 ceremony that took place at the San Diego Convention Center during the IPC APEX EXPO.

In receiving the award, Nihon Superior’s President Tetsuro Nishimura stated: “I’m very pleased that our groundbreaking invention has been recognized with such a prestigious award. The important point is that TipSave N reduces replacement costs while not sacrificing the soldering workability which users greatly appreciate.”

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.

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.

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.
