Our Process

The following is a summary of the step by step procedures used by Amerway to alloy, analyze and statistically monitor each production lot of Amerway solder.


Upon receipt of incoming metal a receiver number is assigned to the material. Every shipment of tin and lead received is analyzed to verify agreement with the supplier’s certificate of analysis. Drillings are taken from 10 different randomly selected ingots. These drillings are then remelted and tested on our state of the art spectrograph.

When alloying the metal into solder, a lot history is initiated and utilized in identifying the components and weights used to form the lot, (sometimes referred to as the charge). The history of every lot can thereby be traced to the origination of all the materials from which it was created.


After the metal has been melted and mixed, an initial pot sample of the lot is then taken for analysis. The sample is prepared on a lathe, then analyzed three times on the spectrograph. This insures there is no separation within the sample. The results are then averaged automatically by the PC which is an integral part of the Spectrolab. The results are then compared to the customer’s specifications and the software program is set up to automatically identify any elements that are not within the specifications.

This same process is performed two more times as the pot is being cast into product. In doing this, we are able to monitor any changes within the lot during the casting process. This is all part of our in process statistical control.


After all of the metal has been cast into product, the results of all of the analytical tests (9 of them) are stored in the Spectrolab statistical data control program.

As you can see, the quality and consistency of Amerway’s solder is very closely monitored. The bottom line is that the customer can be sure every lot of material is exactly what the certificate of analysis (which accompanies each shipment) indicates.
