Typically C type fingers are used when running boards directly and L type are used when running boards in fixtures/pallets.

Dear Larry, Thank you for comment. In according to this, I heard that ıt is much useful to use L type finger when your PCB use without palet and the PCB is little bit heavy. What is your opinion about that?

I think it would have to be pretty heavy to fall out of the c fingers. I have never seen this happen in 30 years of wave soldering.

Thank you for feedback and comments. I have talked the people who worked with C and L types. They said same things like you. So, We have decided to buy wave soldering machine with L finger.
