These are some of the highlights of the work done by our team.

Measurement coil multi-strand wire soldering.

For magnetic measurements, special measurement coils are needed. This footage shows the steps to follow in order to solder connectors on a multi strand wire that is part of the measurement coil. Since the connectors are tiny, the work is executed under a binocular microscope. The different steps are the following:

  • 00:00:00 cutting and separating the wires and putting them in place on the connector.
  • 00:01:40 tacking the wires with very thin solder.
  • 00:02:14 final soldering with thicker solder. The lacquer insulation will vaporise.
  • 00:03:00 same procedure on the other side of the connector.
  • 00:03:28 cutting the excess of wire 00:03:55 examples of the final coils.
