soldering

(sod'ĕr-ing),
1. A laser technique to make one tissue adhere to another.
2. In dentistry, the joining of two metals by the fusion of intermediary alloys that are of a lower melting temperature.

A laser technique to make one tissue adhere to another.

soldering

(sŏd′ĕr-ĭng)
The joining of two pieces of metal by use of a lower-melting-point alloy. When the melted solder cools and solidifies, it joins the parts together. Soldering is used to join many components of dental appliances or orthodontic bands and to add bulk or contours to crowns or inlays.

In dentistry, joining of two metals by fusion of intermediary alloys that have a lower melting temperature.

Because small nozzles are used, much heat must be transferred through a small amount of solder into the board, connectors and pads to enable soldering.
Thus the peelable solder masks must be cured considerably longer and at higher temperatures than during soldering processes--but in the case of previous temperature stress from soldering, the curing times and/or temperatures must be reduced.

Selective soldering (using nozzles) is being increasingly preferred to traditional wave (using pallets) and hand soldering techniques due to the enhanced capabilities in terms of cost, defect reduction, solder quality, and improved throughput.
