Scrapping Electronic PCB's | 24 July, 2008

Hi Guys,

I was asked by our QA Supervisor on how to scrap electronics boards. We have Populated PCB's that are already scrapped and would like to permanently mark them that they are Scrapped...

Is there any recommended method of marking scrap PCB's with AS9100?

any suggestions?

thanks and regards

My plan is to remove as much of the parts as possible and reuse them. Once removed I plan to fix the baord as well. Now have a fresh board to build too.Just about every part can be reworked these days. Even BGAS. Most boards can be redone so that they are good as well. Well it depends on whats wrong with them. I once had these boards that got too hot once and they were burnt. Never smoke next to alcohol based spray fluxers! If you can't scrap em for parts then you should grind em up. Being green is the way to go!
