Magnet wire has been used for years in the electronics industry in everything from transformers, inductors, motors, electromagnets and on and on. What you may not know is that all coatings are not created equal and some wires can have multiple layers of poly insulating films on them. With this comes various heat requirements to remove the material to get to the core wire for soldering. Take a moment to explore the issues that plague this process and learn how to prepare the wire for soldering without damaging the base material itself.
Topics we will be reviewing are:
- Various magnet wire coatings and their differences.
- Operating temperatures for these films and where they are used.
- Effective tooling for material removal.
- Developing an effective process for a given material.
