Thermaltronics Manufacturer of Soldering Technology Partners with RS Components

Thermaltronics and RS Components have announced a new strategic partnership that will expand distribution of the unique advanced soldering technology, “Curie Heat” (CHT) on a global basis. RS Components is one of the world’s largest distributors of electronics and maintenance products.


Thermaltronics‘ is a manufacturer of advanced soldering stations that employ Curie Heat Technology. This unique technology optimizes heat transfer ensuring increased performance, productivity and quality. Curie Heat Technology is different, it responds to the thermal demands of each solder joint by adjusting the power instantaneously, thereby meeting the exact requirements of the substrate component and solder material.


Unlike conventional soldering systems, Curie Heat Technology ensures there is no overshoot of tip temperature, making it ideal for precise electronic PCB assembly and SMT rework. Longer tip life and increased productivity can also be achieved through use of the “sleep” workstand, which “powers down” the tip when not in use. Delivered Power is controlled by the physical properties of the heater which is made of a proprietary ferromagnetic alloy to control the Curie Point temperature.


Michael Gouldsmith, Director, had this to say about the new Partnership: “Thermaltronics Soldering Systems are trusted, proven and are used by some of the largest manufacturers of avionics, electronics, medical & technology companies in the world. Partnering with RS Components will enable us to expand our distribution throughout Europe and globally, thereby providing customers with the finest in soldering technology.”


Additionally, Michael said, “Advances in plating technology have also ensured reductions in the “cost of ownership” and extended tip life. With today’s delicate and complex electronic assemblies, temperature accuracy is a consistent challenge. Component density, lead size and thermally sensitive components all combine to increase process control demands, criteria which many systems fail to meet. To aid in the selection of the correct temperature profile, solder cartridges are color coded for easy identification. This unique and patented feature has additional benefits in both inventory management and quality control.”


As part of this partnership, RS is supporting Themaltronics’ plan for business growth by providing additional distribution markets for it’s cutting edge soldering products. Customers purchasing these products via the global RS websites will benefit from over 60 websites across the world and easy online access to useful supplementary information, including videos and technical data, via the web and mobile platforms.
