Full of challenges: the automotive industry

As one of the world’s most dynamic and innovative industries for several decades, the automotive industry is of huge significance both socially and economically, and is a real powerhouse of technical innovations. The most significant overarching development to date is probably the current transition from the combustion engine to the electric drive in conjunction with the digitalisation of the car and of traffic and mobility infrastructure. All of this involves enormous change processes while also opening up huge investment potential. Objectives such as sustainability, safety and networking are now more central than ever before. Remaining economically successful in this demanding environment means offering solutions that are both innovative and practical, as well as keeping up to date with the dynamics of change. The many challenges faced in this industry cannot be overcome by one company alone. In addition to the extensive specialisation in the relevant technology, intensive cooperation between the various parties is therefore becoming increasingly important. 

Soft solders from a specialist

Soft solders are of particular importance when it comes to the materials used in the automotive industry: The alloys have always been seen as demanding and highly specialised, and they are now becoming increasingly individualised and distinct: The increasingly extensive interrelationship between mechanical and electronic systems and the networking of electric drives, sensors, assistance systems and comfort functions right through to autonomous driving mean that the fields of application for soldering are continually expanding. And the requirements in terms of quality and reliability are also becoming continually more stringent. Suppliers of soft solders are also subject to the strict checks and standards of the respective car manufacturers or the certified, audited OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers). The alloys must also originate entirely from conflict-free extraction regions or regions of origin in accordance with the currently valid Conflict Mineral Report Template (CMRT).

 

Applications

  • Car-body construction
    Soft solders used as filling solder or wiping solder for sealing gaps in the exterior body. Special lead-free soft solders in the form of bars and rods. 

  • Radiator construction
    Tin-plating of the cooling tubes using lead-free and lead-containing soft solders.

  • Glass electric contacts
    Heating elements, navigation and communication systems that are installed directly or indirectly onto the glass panes in the car. Primarily lead-free soft solders but sometimes soft solders containing lead.

  • Electronics/mechatronics
    Interconnection of an extremely wide range of different systems relating to navigation, safety, communication and comfort. Practically all EMS soft solders from low-temperature soft solders to high-temperature soft solders as well as new alloys.
