The German distributor, Kruse Electronic Components, is now converting lead-free components to leaded components, and turning leaded components to lead-free.
An article in the European website, evertiq, notes that Kruse is using a proprietary chemical process that was developed over the last two years by one of Kruse’s international strategic partners. Kraus says the process is supported with official certificates.
The process was developed to help companies avoid the costly re-design of obsolete components. Kruse offers conversion of complete inventories to help avoid write-offs.
