A Vapor Phase Solution for Every Need
Batch, Inline and Vacuum Machines
Are solder joint defects or changeover times impacting your throughput? Vapor phase soldering technology may be the answer.
IBL patented Soft Vapor Phase (SVP) technology provides total process control, supporting a wide range of temperature controlled soldering profiles. Lead-free and leaded soldering can be supported with the same fluid, realizing different maximum temperatures for the assembly. Our wealth of soldering experience and innovative process developments makes IBL Technologies a market and technology leader in vapor phase soldering.

In the beginning of SMT, Vapor Phase Soldering was the preferred reflow soldering technology because of its excellent heat transfer capabilities. There were also some disadvantages like fast temperature rise, nearly no influence on the temperature profiles and high costs. So the use of Vapor Phase Soldering was reduced to special applications with high mass or complex boards in low numbers (e.g. for military or aerospace use)....

As of today, the electronic industry is aware of the requirements for their products to be lead free. All components are typically available in lead free quality. This comprises packages like BGAs with BGA solder balls to PCB board finishes like HASL. The suppliers are providing everything that is needed. It is harder to get the old tin leaded (SnPb) components for new applications today, than lead free ones.
So why has not everybody changed over fully yet and how can the challenges be overcome?
A big concern in this transition process is reflow soldering. The process temperatures for lead free applications became much higher. Related with this is more stress for all the components. It affects the quality and reliability of the electronic units and products......
