SHINE uses Oki / Metcal soldering stations and American Beauty solder tinning pots
Soldering from SHINE is an important part of your custom cable assembly or wire harnessing project. We employ a highly-trained workforce that’s skilled in soldered terminations and solder connections. Our facility is RoHS compliant, too.
What Is Soldering?
Soldering forms strong, reliable connections between metal components such as a wire and a terminal. Solder, a type of filler metal with a relatively low melting point, is heated until it flows into the joint.
Good solder joints have a smooth appearance that’s free of scratches and sharp edges. As an experienced provider of wire and cable processing services, SHINE follows standards such as IPC/WHMA-A-620 for soldered terminations and solder connections.

SHINE uses soldering pots or tinning pots for melting solder and tinning the ends of lead wires. The American Beauty solder pots that we use provide reliable temperature control and support precise temperature settings for solder or tinning projects.
Irons vs. Soldering Stations
Soldering irons are handheld tools with a heated metal tip and an insulated handle. Typically, they’re used in very low volume production. Soldering stations like the 25+ Oki / Metcal units used at SHINE offer numerous advantages. For example, they support various sizes, shapes, and temperature tips for most any solder-related requirement.
