Even when you run a board several times, the machine may not make the same travel path every time. This in itself does not create a problem, but the vacuum on the nozzles could be different, dependent on the configuration of components on the heads.

We have been pretty successful with screen printing glue, however the smallest component we now glue is a 0805. We had many problems using our Gemini II to put down glue dots for a 0603, so we altered the pads to do double-side reflow. As our own int

Sure you can use SPC charting on the wave setup parameters to warn of impending problems. Examples of useful points of analysis are: * Dwell * Temperature * Pot analysis Certainly there's a range of other process controls that could be monitored.

As Russ said, you do a DOE beforehand. BUT Maybe we are missing something, we do SPC after the wave (1/5) to catch defect trends and fix them with a minimum of inspection. If you are running a 2,000 piece pull, are you that confident that your origin

The Immersion gold is not a problem with BGAs specifically but "black pad" which can be present anywhere. The unfortunate thing with BGAs is you cannot see it. Personally I hate white tin. It is okay for single sided boards running no-clean, but c

Hi TS, Most of the machines will face this problem after been using few years.....I handling SMT equipments ( Fuji machine ) and process.....sorry if I have offened you...... Hi Jack, Firstly, you must able to tell which component having a high thr

Some amount of voiding was always seen on sites where solder paste is printed. These voids are much smaller. However the site where a flip chip is flux dipped has never had problems with voiding. Macro voids (and huge ones at that)across the board s

A process consists of much more than just thee machine. When developing a cause and effect diagram ffor the process, there are many parameters that fall outside the machine itself. There are Man, Machine, Methods, and Materials. Just monitoring th

We have the same problems with cut/tape parts. But, we specialize in short-run prototypes, so I don't have much of a choice but to deal with it, and find a way to make it as easy as possible. We just demo'd a splice tool from Sierra Electronics (ww
