Teka's Solder-Flux Bearing Lead (SBL) technology economically attaches solder and flux to each contact lead. This enables the elimination of costly and defect prone soldering methods, such as hand or wave soldering as well as providing alternatives, without the limitations, to intrusive reflow or press-fit. Our SBL connectors are soldered using conventional SMT equipment and processes and without adding any additional solder, solder paste or flux.

Our goal is to transition PCB assemblies requiring hand labor and/or multiple soldering processes to a streamlined single or double sided reflow process only.
