Process development - The analytical road to our goal

The Katek process technicians determine the optimum process parameters as early as at the development phase or in the run-up to the first order. Here the individual sub-tasks are analysed and the best methods and work flows that are found in each case are combined. They support in addition the Quality Assurance process to accompany production right from the beginning with each production order.

Modern analysis techniques guarantee quality and efficiency.


Core processes

Quality techniques

  • Soldering paste qualification / qualification of process-relevant consumer goods
  • Determination of soldering profiles
  • Climatic tests, contamination measurement, production and evaluation of cross-section polishes
