Electronics Forum | Tue Feb 08 17:23:55 EST 2011 | bandjwet

Has someone had really good experience with the softening of silicone conformal coating using a specific chemical? One of our clients just came in with a board with Dow 1502 silicone coating on it. We generally mechanically remove the coating for re

We are looking to start/buy or lease a small SMT factory. Our goal is to do mostly prototypes and also some overflow production. We are looking for a 1 line factory, solder rework stations, oven, etc. Looking for a location within the USA. Please con

A good epoxy should work. Removal would require damaging the board, component, what ever it is attached to. I know Hardman makes a bi-pack ambient cure epoxy that we used in the lab. Search the web for epoxy suppliers, they'll offer various cure s

Basically it pretty standard to run through the board. For programmers /manufacturing engineers it’s a catch 22. If you check everything management is complaining it takes too long. If you don’t check management is complaining because of rework and y

LF Wave Solder - SN100C or ????

We use succesfully SN100C on ERSA330 for about 2-3years. Pros: - price, - less dross comparing to SAC305, - some ppl say better mechanical durability comparing to SAC305 (depends who pay for "independent" studies) Cons: - higher melting temp so r

In relation to question 2 the vacume on them is quite sensitive so as long as you bring it down slowly the component is almost sucked up off the PCB so you don't have to actually press it down on the the component, and i have never experienced any so

question about reflow- it it ever a long term solution?

Electronics Forum | Wed Jul 04 12:18:14 EDT 2012 | davef

Phil is correct in his description of proper rework technique. Possible explanations of the reason for popping of your BGA are: * Thermal cycling of components cause them to flex on a different point in the cycle that the board possibly resulting in

Hi, Regarding to thermocouple placement, you should use a precision thin drill. Drill through the bottom of the board to the top as follows: One hole in the center of the part, preferably into one of the center balls, if available. One hole into the

Multiple reflows

Electronics Forum | Fri Feb 01 10:54:35 EST 2013 | dyoungquist

Regardless of the surface finish, you should try to limit the reflow cycles to 3 with no more than 5 at most. This includes reworking a BGA site as well. Remember that heating/cooling to remove a BGA is one cycle and heating/cooling to place a BGA b

Thats a good one Dave. Sorry to say, but I have seen setups very similar for the mass repair of Playstations. Just add a heat gun over the top and you are ready for some rework! . And just LOOK at the controller! With E-Z turn knurled knob for setti
