There is no standard for time above liquidus. It is described rather broadly by the solder paste supplier. Reflow Zone: If the temperature is too high, boards may char or burn. If the temperature is too low, cold and grainy solder joints will resul

Hi all, What do most of you aim for when profiling BGAs ? Currently I aim for time above 60 or 70 secs but I read a report that 40 secs would be more suitable. Also peak temp - I aim for 240-245 but again this report stated 230-235. any input app

TAL Too Long - dull solder joints, dewetting. TAL Too Short - cold solder, insufficient wetting. You want TAL to be as short as possible (but not lower than 30 seconds), but long enough for every solder joint to be above TAL for at least 30 seconds.

I have been TAL around 45 to 90 seconds. I prefer the longer TAL so, I set my profiles around 80 seconds. In the old days (Before RoSH), the longer times would help with wetting. But, since Lead-Free, well. We all know the story about wetting now

I'm putting up an SMT/PTH/Hybrids shop in the Philippines and it is a fire drill. I want anything in the North America. Background PCBA Assembly, build factories, run same. Mostly in Asia, but some Mexico, Puerto Rican experience, speak spanish.

Are you sure your units are correct? Is this in the exhaust duct or actually in the reflow area? 4000 FPM = 67 FPS or 45 MPH (73 km/H). I have no doubt such a wind would blow larger parts off the board. If this is only in the exhaust ducting, the
