A lot of it depends upon what the lead terminations are and the storage conditions. For example if they are tin you will run into trouble. We have used all types of parts that are all ages (We just started doing BGAs that are 5 years old.) I don't

It depends on what you mean by control. The host that you mention is PanaPro Software. PanaPro will upload and download programs to your machine, as well as optimize the cycle rate for the program (or groups of programs). This is a product sold by Pa

OK, I have some names to go by. I appreciate the info, especially the Quad related stuff, because my company was leaning toward the Quad, and I was concerned about its age and technology. I am going to look into the Fuji XP142E, the Samsung CP40/45,

Hi Bernard, Sorry mate but it sounds like it's the Hard Drive ageing - we are seeing this more frequently on our older machines. Hope you've got the install disks & part library/program backups as they don't always like being ghosted. Hope I'm wro

Don't forget to buy the "Lead free heelstraps, smocks, wriststraps, hairnets and repair table" too. They cost twice as much, but you have to have them! We use regular wick and it works well with the LF solder. Vendor even ageed there was no need t

Rip, When you say you are looking at Universal, I assume you mean the AdVantis AC-30L? Why go with another aging chipshooter like the 4796 or CP6, when the AC-30L can supply higher throughput, similar # of feeder inputs, larger component range,

High Power Reliability

To be more specific. I am actually talking about the electrical fatigue whereby a unit is undergo a cyclic electric test. Unlike thermal fatigue, it is all talking about temperature related testing, eg, ageing test, thermal cycle test, etc. Anyone of

What is delta t?

Good points on both subjects. Not all who talk engineer speak are engineers. It depends on how shiny their shoes are. Delta T across any medium can mean a myriad of different set values. From Polynomial Expressions to the names of any organization

Hi all, I have an inconsistent situation. Lately, we seem to have excessive dross buildup in the solder pot which inturn causes the pot to overflow. Has anyone had a similar experience? Here are the details: age of machine= 9 years, flux used= Kester
