I expect to find the specification and measurement method for the bow & twist of an assembly to be on the assembly drawing. Comments are: * Expecting that an industry committee to write a bow & twist spec for an assembly they know nothing about is n

Dear Friends, I need your help to understand requirements and measurement methods for bow and twist of assembled PCB (PCBA have and SMT and TH components). I already check all posts on the site but didn't found any related to my question answers.

650 Standards are also located in the back of IPC JSTD-001. I am currently looking at 4 pages on bow and twist. Percent bow = R1-R2/L x 100 (R1= Highest point; R2=lowest or resting point; l= length) Percent twist=(R1-R2)/(2xL)x 100 Sorry if this is

Hey Dougie, If you go to IPC.ORG and click on the on-line resources and databases, then on the "free downloads" link, the second or third document "for free" is the IPC-TM-650 in its entirety. It does discuss the test you are looking for! Have fun
