EasyBraid Company

A manufacturer of desoldering braid (wick) with an emphasis on continuing advancement in soldering/desoldering technology, visual and x-ray inspection systems, fume extraction, and solder paste inspection systems.

Manufacturer of Assembly Equipment, Repair/Rework

Easy Braid Co. is a manufacturer of desolder wick with an emphasis on continuing advancement in desoldering technology. Established in 1989, Easy Braid Co. quickly achieved widespread recognition in the rework/repair industry with its competitive pricing and innovative product line.

With products, packaging, and flux technologies constantly changing�particularly in the development of water soluble and no-clean fluxes, fine pitch components and arrays�high quality and consistent performance is essential. By manufacturing in compliance with ISO9002 standards, and through our strict adherence to Statistical Process Control (SPC), Easy Braid Co. can assure you the highest quality products and guarantee the consistency of that quality.

Easy Braid Co.�s wick products are made using ultra fine, oxide-free copper braided into a weave configuration which maximizes thermal conduction and solder retention. Immediately after braiding, the wick is cleaned in an environmentally friendly process unique to Easy Braid Co. Every precaution is taken to ensure that the braid remains oxide-free until it is coated through our proprietary flux process. Our closed weave design requires less time for desoldering, thus minimizing lifted pads and thermal damage and absorbing up to 30% more solder mass. This enables an operator to get on and off a connection quickly, using less wick to accomplish the task.

Easy Braid Co. applies the same technologies to its stencil rolls for optimum cleaning while using the least amount of paper to absorb most solder paste. Unlike other stencil roll manufacturers who re-spool readily available paper to fit various screen printers, Easy Braid Co. utilizes a paper that is specifically designed for maximum absorption of solder paste in a stencil-cleaning environment.
