I have run 0.031 boards. One of the things you may want to look at is the speed of the oven. With 14 zones you may be going to slow with the board which could be the reason your boards are starting to bow. You might also think about adding stiffners

We have 1/2 dozens 0.031 pcbs that bow after going through the oven. We are looking for a solution to this problem to prevent bowing of the pcbs. As a result of the bowing, the pcbs, on occasion get caught in the oven, and more often have transfer

We agree with all of the previous comments, and would add the following: Warpage is generally caused by excess moisture in the raw boards. Have you tried baking the boards prior to assembly? We had this issue on a simple 4-layer board, and found t

warped boards and cracked solder joints

Electronics Forum | Mon Oct 29 18:21:43 EST 2001 | slthomas

We recently have received a lot of warped (bowed and/or twisted behond IPC 600 specs.) bare boards (some our fabricator's fault, some ours by design) and I can't help but figure that long term reliability will suffer when building product with them.

Blistering and delaminating boards

Electronics Forum | Thu Sep 20 07:18:42 EDT 2018 | proceng1

Has anyone else been experiencing this lately? We have had a rash of boards that come in properly vacuum sealed. We store them in the hot room until we are ready to build, and we get bubbles under the solder mask. We've had 4 different jobs, all di

Flexi boards and uBGA

We've had much trouble with flex circuits. As previously mentioned, you must have local fids for the board or the BGA itself (if panelized). Other troubles we experience are drilled holes for pinned connectors. Unless the PCB manufactur has some w

Hi folks, thanks for all the tips. We have run our first batch of these flexi boards now. I had the PCB suppliers make me some 1.6mm FR4 carriers to lay the boards on to carry them through the process. (1 flat & 1 with cutouts for the second side)
