Re: Lasers and Residue

I guess I wasn't clear on the point of us trying to stay away from chemicals. We are making a machine that winds a coil of magnetic wire, then wire strips the leads of the coil, only to to solder the coil leads to a flex circuit. We are providing an automated process to company that has been doing t...

Re: Lasers and Residue

The reason I'm looking for a clean process for wire stripping is a) residue presents yield for soldering b) mechanical strippers on 41 AWG wire will, if not break, leave scratches on the wire itself. Or, if its thermal removal, will burn the insulation leaving, if not residue, a charred surface. Nei...

Re: Lasers and Residue

we can't use a mechanical stripper due to the material of insulation. There has to be minimal damage, if any, to the wire which cannot be achieved with a mechanical stripper.

Lasers and Residue

Right now my company is trying to build a machine where we coil magnetic wire, wire strip the end leads, and solder these end leads of the coil to a flex circuit. Excimer lasers are used for wire stripping, but they are so expensive. We were thinking of using a TEA CO2 laser, but that leaves a resid...
