The strands of conductors in the thinnest wires are not much thicker than a human hair! Delicate hand-soldering ensures a reliable joint.

Delicate hand-soldering of signal wires in this assembly results in a reliable connection and low losses.


Our soldered assemblies are fully RoHS compliant - i.e. the solder and components are free from lead and other potentially harmful substances.

Lead-free soldering demands higher temperatures and can lead to weaker joints.

Here at Cranfield Electrical Ltd., however, we have the skill and experience to deliver reliable lead-free soldering.


RoHS legislation has meant that lead-based solder is banned from many electrical products. Cranfield Electrical Ltd now uses only lead-free solders, yet has maintained the quality and consistency demanded by its customers.
