Global Vapor Phase Soldering (VPS) Machine Market: Introduction

In electronics, soldering is a manufacturing process where two or more items are joined by melting a filler material into a joint. The filler material is known as solder. Any kind of soldering activity is done on a printed circuit board (PCB) or surface-mount technology (SMT) board. The process of soldering in a vapor phase soldering machine is as follows: First a PCB is loaded in a vapor phase soldering machine and the medium is heated up. Then the PCB is lowered into a vapor and is heated in a condensed vapor. The vapor condensates over the PCB till the PCB acquires a specific temperature. A vapor sensor is located in a vapor phase soldering machine which signals the machine to remove the PCB to a cooler zone. The PCB when moved to a cooler zone contains condensate. The soldering process is then started. Vapor phase soldering is also known as condensation soldering.
