Van Hoang: Welcome to SMTnet!!!! Regarding your problems:

1. Cleaning glue: Check the SMTnet archives. For instance, a recent thread was: cleaning glue off of stencils - pr 13:41:43 03/03/2000

2. Bridging on the wave: Bridging on the wave has many potential causes. Wadja say we try to narrow our focus by you giving us some information about: * Extent of the problem: New problem, old problem, many boards, few boards, all leads, some leads (where?), few leads (where?), etc * Connector: Lead material, lead pitch, solderability, etc * Board: Material, layers, pad size, ground planes, component orientation to the wave, solderability, etc * Process: Flux, fluxer type, conveyor speed, preheater temperature, solder temperature, dwell time, conveyor angle, etc * Process controls: Flux specific gravity, flux activity, flux cleanliness, flux coverage, solder analysis results, etc

Good luck
