Soldering and process

Weidmüller is the leading provider for reflow-compatible products. The connection system can be integrated in the SMT process by means of THR or SMD technology. Our broad product spectrum promotes efficiency in the device manufacture in the electronics sector. Manufacturing costs can be reduced through the use of fully automated connection elements in a single manufacturing process. Find out more in the following about our THR and SMD technology.

Materials and surfaces

We are pleased to provide you with information on the materials, contact surfaces, and insulation materials we use as follows.

Fastening options

null

Every new design needs different components to provide a suitable solution for your application. For example, the mating connectors on the PCB and in the housing have to meet different requirements. When installing the mating connectors, your customers will expect enhanced features for safety and convenience.

Design and processing

null

Surface Mount Technology (SMT) has become established as the common standard for processing electronic assemblies. The connection system can be integrated in the SMT process in two ways: by means of THR (Through-Hole Reflow) or SMD (Surface Mount Device) technology. A combination of both types of mounting is also possible.

Learn more about our THR and SMD components in the following.

THR components

THR components

THR components

In the through-hole reflow process (THR), components are inserted through a hole in the PCB and then soldered to other SMT components. The special challenge of this method is that the components need to withstand the high temperatures of the SMT process.

SMD components

SMD components

SMD components

In the SMT process, the surface-mounted devices (SMDs) are soldered to the PCB with solder pads. The use of SMD components means that it is possible to dispense with wire pins to the components and with the holes normally required for attachment to the PCB.
