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.

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.
