Cleaning High-power Electronics

A closed-loop solvent-based approach.

To prevent malfunctions in high-power electronics, flux residues must be removed from flip chip components prior to subsequent processes. As a result, integrating a suitable cleaning application into the manufacturing process of flip chip components is often required. Solvent-based applications have re-emerged, and with that an overall process solution is necessary.

SMT Chip Component Prep. - Dry Tack Method
(1 min. 44 sec.)


Best, Inc instructors have put to video demonstrations of common hand soldering skills. These are not designed to be in place of live one on one training where repetitive skills and subsequent one on one feedback is given. Rather they are quick refreshers designed to be viewed if a specific skill has not been practiced in a while.
