Lead-free tinning of wire-ends
Based on the EU Policy 2002/95/EG, only lead-free solders may be used after 1 July 2006. This is also valid for Switzerland. This measure – to protect our environment and planet – is a worldwide effort and not just done in Europe. Companies who currently invest in new tinning techniques must therefore consider these new demands.
New alloys are necessary which unfortunately have a higher melting point (about 30° hotter). It is a fact that lead-free tin is very aggressive towards stainless steels like V2 and V4 and corrodes these rather quickly. 2mm sheet-metal can have its first hole in as little as 500 hours.
For this reason TINTEC GmbH offers a new tinning-station. The tub is made of a harder, very special steel and has a tough protective coating. In addition this unit is, just as is the fluxing station, equipped with an adjustable stop-plate which ensures accurate repetitions of the dipping-depth.

Flux Station TT 31
The Flux-Station Model TT 31 was developed as a bench-top unit and, due to its handy design, can be installed and ready on any workbench within minutes. The flux-container and the pump are built into a stable enclosure which protects them from impact and damage. The mains switch for the pump is mounted into this enclosure and is easily accessed.
The Technical Novelty:
The flux bath is equipped with an adjustable plate which serves as a stop for a constantly repeatable accurate flux depth. This stop-plate can be adjusted to any flux depth from 1 to 30 mm. Using the integrated spindle with a millimetre display, the operator can set up the flux bath for a new depth within seconds.
The Essential Advantage:
The constantly repeatable flux depth ensures a much more accurate manual tinning !
The stop-plate increases production by more than 30% !
The Fluxbath Station TT 31 returns on your investment in about 3 months !

Tinning Station TT 41
Combined with the TT 31 Flux-Station, which is also equipped with a stop-plate, one can achieve an extremely fast and accurate production.
Never before with dip-tinning of single and multiple wires (in a bundle) could such accurate tinning-lengths be achieved as with this device-combination !

Tinning Station FA 400 LF
The signals Ready and Alarm can be connected to PNP and NPN controller inputs. These outputs are two seperate optically insulated transistor switches. Due to the integrated clamping diodes, even magnet coils can be switched directly.
1. Ready; This output on means:
a) Selected temperature is reached
b) Motor is running
c) Wave level is reached
In other words: Device is ready for production.
2. Alarm; This output on means:
Tin amount in tub is not sufficient to maintain the wave level.
90 seconds time to refill, or else the Ready signal will turn off.
FA 400 N Conversion Kit
We offer a conversion kit for older FA 400 N models. These can be equipped with new parts to make them suitable for lead-free tinning.
