I'm a PCB designer working on a board that has a rubber keypad with control buttons mounted to it. The PCB contains the corresponding contact patterns for the buttons - a typical interlocking finger pattern. In the past when I've encountered this

Wave Pallet Lifespan

Electronics Forum | Mon Jul 15 18:29:55 EDT 2002 | russ

Are you talking about selective wave pallets? Most of it depends on the minimum thickness of masking walls (design). I have had some that have lasted until the product went EOL (5000 passes or so. and some have made it about 50 passes. How's that

>Hours mean nothing on these machines. Correct me if I am wrong but isn't it true that heaters and blowers (maybe valves) have a specific lifespan? I would think that parts in an oven with many hours on it are due to fail sooner than those in one wit

Hi all, If i know my field conditions and the required lifespan of the final product, how can i decide what thermal cycle to use for ATC to qualify the product?? I have the JEDEC standards for min-max temps and dwells, but how do i translate them int

It depend's as Russ say's on your pallets, things like : material type wall thickness floor thickness selective or open app. but also on the process, the volumes, the number of carriers you have vs the build numbers & cycle time and the machine your

Different viruses have different lifespans outside the host. HIV is something like a few seconds. The flu is something like 12 hours. Sars is something like 24 hrs. There are a lot more deadlier deseases. I think you would have a much greater chance

Stencil foil life span

Electronics Forum | Thu Jan 09 11:15:12 EST 2020 | cyber_wolf

Stencil lifespan depends on several factors such as squeegee type, squeegee pressure, handling,and foil thickness to name a few. There is no magic number. The best judge is your SPI machine if you have one. We typically start thinking about replacem

The 4 places I've worked in SMT all had their own solutions for their own reason. I quit worrying about what worked best if what I had worked OK. I've only seen (or recognized, at least) tension issues on foils that had been saved well beyond a rea

guys, Currently running a very high volume product, with the gold fingers at the edge of the board masked off using Kapton tape to avoid any form of contamination during reflow and wavesoldering. I've heard alot of about the gold finger gloves, my q
