There are two common soldering methods for pogo pins: manual soldering and machine soldering of pogo pins.
- Manual soldering of pogo pins
The temperature of the soldering torch (electric soldering iron) for manual soldering can be adjusted according to the temperature requirements of different pogo pin products.
Manual soldering is divided into spot welding and drag welding. The most important point of manual soldering is the proficiency of the soldering personnel. In addition to affecting efficiency, it is more important to the effect of pogo pin soldering. A skilled welder will be more assured of the quality and efficiency of making pogo pins. Therefore, the general manual soldering personnel must go through relevant training and practical operation before they can take up their jobs.
- Machine soldering of pogo pins
Machine soldering is divided into semi-automatic soldering and automatic soldering.
Fully automatic soldering, the parts of the PCB board are placed by the automatic placement machine, and then enter the wave or reflow oven. There are two more common ways to fully automatically solder pogo pins: generally divided into reflow soldering (also called SMT) and wave soldering. The semi-automatic soldering is manually responsible for feeding, and then all the parts are welded by the mechanical arm.
