Simple question... Not so simple answer. It depends largely on process spec and honesty of the people running the test. Most will jump to throw out the flyers as "special cause". So if you didn't set the spec and didn't witness the run and measu

Several points: * Consider that your Cpk is probably different for both placing large and small components. * Probably your routine placement rate SB the speed you use to monitor the accuracy of your process. * Some people use a calibrated glass test

Hello martys, The critical variables to measure print process capability on any printer are its ability to securely clamp a board, accurately align the board to its mating stencil, print with appropriate squeegee pressure and follow print material gu

Mathematically, measure the component offsets from nominal then calculate the average and the SD of the offsets in x and y. You can then use the following equation to calculate the CpK: CpK = (Process Width - Abs(Average offset)) / (3 * SD offset)

I would like to know how to implement CPk study on SMT line At this time we have the application to calculate CPk on Chip Placers for X and Y axes repeatability, but I'm trying to find what should I calculate on my Oven and paste printer in a simple

Choices are: * Run a Cp, Cpk capable profiler through the oven. * Review the results of your supplier's process qualification that would include Cp, Cpk on their oven. Handspring contract [REV. 6 - 7/1/99] with Flextronics says: [snip] 4. Process Ca

Ovens, and any other process for that matter, will ALWAYS vary. It's called process variation. I do Cpk (process capability) on my ovens. I track time-above-liquidus and peak temperatures. Statistics will validate how repeatable your oven is.

For the reflow process check out KIC THERMAL at kicthermal.com. They make a product called 24/7 which can collects data for process capability. I beta tested the unit about 2 years ago....interesting stuff.

stepheniii Unsure how they determine that the process is stable and in control, a prerequisite to calculating Cp, Cpk. A trained chimp smoking a cigar could calculate Cp, Cpk.
