A recording accelerometer is about the only thing I can think of. Unless you can find an insulative container (like for a profiler) you'd just have to run it through a cold oven.

There are no many moving parts in oven. Usially fan can give some vibration. Every heating zone have fan, so you can turn off them one by one and check vibration.

In my experience the largest contributor to vibration or other abnormal product movement in a reflow oven is deferred maintenance of a chain mesh belt conveyor.

We have a Rehm oven that can vibrate hard enough to shift parts on the board. The vibration is due to flux build up on the exhaust blower. If we don't clean it regularly we start to see parts shifting in the oven.

Can you possibly elaborate on your problem and why you think you have an unidentifiable vibration?

Hi Thanks All,

In one of our reflow oven , component skew after reflow.

So we are suspecting the vibration in the oven.

But not able to get the exact source of vibration.

So please help us out.

Hi Steve,

thanks.

please suggest me any supplier who can provide us accelerometer for reflow oven.

It takes a good deal of sudden movement to skew parts. Who makes the oven?

I hesitate to recommend anyone as a good source just because I haven't personally investigated it myself.

There are several manufacturers of recording accelerometers....I just looked at Google and found a couple that I might call on if I was looking into it myself. What I don't know is what you need to specify for specifications to best serve your purpose. You might want to read this:

https://www.ni.com/en-us/innovations/white-papers/06/measuring-vibration-with-accelerometers.html

just to get some more background.

Ideally you'll find one that either fits into your profiler enclosure (although that would dampen the shock and/or vibration that you're trying to measure) so you can run it hot. Otherwise, you'll have to run it without heating it up, which could change the values of the very characteristic that you're trying to measure.

It's possible that there is a high temperature tolerant device that's made for specific industries, but I didn't come across one.

One thing to consider first, though, is Justin's comment. A high frequency low amplitude vibration is probably going to do more to center parts than anything else, so what you're looking for is intermittent shock that affects the operation of the conveyor. At least some of that should be visible just by watching it.

The melting of the solder during reflow itself can center up or skew a component. This could be pad size differential, incorrect pad size, unequal solder deposition amounts, pad spacing in reference to component size just to name a few.

He did mention that it was limited to one oven, so it seems that at the very least the process window is reduced in that oven.

Which make and model oven do you have? In my past life, I had a problem with Hellers where what I think was called a clutch assembly would slip. As part of the PM on those ovens, we had to tighten that clutch assembly. If we didn't, the belt and edge support chains would jump occasionally. That would be enough to cause skew..

I agree with Chariem.

Take a look at this thread [posted by the same author as this thread] on SMTnet: Component Skew during Reflow Process [ https://smtnet.com/Forums/index.cfm?fuseaction=view_thread&CFApp=1&Thread_ID=22131&mc=7 ]

The pads on this board don't seem to match well with the component terminations AND there's too much solder on the board!!! ... A textbook prescription for component slewing, eh?

Thanks a lot everyone.

For the valuable knowledge sharing.

And technical links. ( will go through it )

We have BTU oven ( Pyramax X 150N ).

Sorry but I disagree The conveyor be it mesh belt or pin chain is a moving part that has caused many parts to dislodge Lack of lubricant on all the moving parts is usually the culprit I’ve also occasionally seen a bent link on a mesh belt snag & hook on something then let go like a sling shot

What is the skewed part ? How you exclude other causes?

Hi Sam,

The skewed part images I have shared at my first Query.

We have excluded other causes because, We have faced this issue in one particular oven. Where as this is running for many years in other oven lines and we don't have this issue.

So other chances are excluded.

Hi SMTA Team,

Thanks for the input.

Will consider the point and re verify lubrication in our maintenance activity.
