I need some info on how to stop the bridges I'm having on radial and axial parts that are in the same place on every board. I'm also having problems with sot-25 bridging. I'm using a Electrovert E-pak. I tried leveling the machine,solder pot, and th

Hello once again! I am having a problem with a 24 pin connector bridging on the wave. We use very similar connectors on other PCB with zero problems. This connector bridges in the same place on the same pins. It forms like a little block of four

Sounds like the problem is design realted - here's a cheesy trick if your product/process permits: (you know how I love my cheesey tricks!) Put an adhesive dot between the pins that are bridging. If you're gluing bottomside SMT components to the bo

Hi Jason I think Wolfgang has this one nailed. If it's the same four pins every time and nothing changes this, even rotating the board 90 degrees, then you're probably going to find something like a ground plane connected to them. I don't think sol

Jason, it looks like you have several options that have strong promise of working. I suggest you perform a designed experiment to find/optimize the best solution with these suggested approaches. Ron

Thanks for all the ideas. I tried solder "thieves" by placing some desoldering wick behind the briging pins and it worked! I have yet to try Chrys' idea but I will first thing Monday. This is a new board that has had this problem from day one. I

Hi Jason, a couple of questions: What�s the pitch? Did you change direction the board is going through the wave and what happend? How about the design abnormalities for those 4 pins, thermalreliefpads or whatever? We had problems with 2mm pitch and

i've rotated the board with the same result. What are soldertheif pads. I'm new to wave soldering and this is another new one on me. What did you use? where do you put the pads? please explain as much as you care to...also my leads are 1mm and th
