Sorry to build up your hopes. The latest thing to hit the air ways at work, I was accessed of fiddling with the oven settings, because there were reports of "cracked joints" there was no mention of where the cracks were, cracked at the pcb or cracke

95%+ of my boards are small and therefore are panelized using the V-score technique. Getting a lot of resistor cracking even though the resistor is layed out to be perpendicular to the long board edge. What dimension should be used from the board e

I have seen resistors cracked during placement. The part was programmed incorrectly and the nozzle pushed down on the part too hard. I do not remember seeing any cracked during depanelization. Nibblers can cause damage if they are on the bottom and

We had this same problem several years ago. The caps and resistors were cracking when we snapped the boards apart. We now use a pizza cutter style depanelizer. A couple of manufacturers that I know of are CAB and Fancort. I hope this helps.

Hello, I am a Japanese engineer. I am sorry for my unskillful English. Have you ever encountered cracks in chip resistors or IC components due to board mechanical stress? Especially, I'm looking for a case in the PCBs Depaneling process(pizza cutte

I can not tell you what the actual stress limits are. I can tell you that de-paneling PCB's by hand is a very poor choice. I have seen numerous accounts of cracked caps, resistors, and LED�s due to incorrect de-paneling procedures. I would recommend

What your said looks like a acrylic coating thermal expansion causes small solder joint crack. Do you cure coating with heating, or heating after curing? Solder joint crack while you see resistor and QFN trouble? Clear and detail description of your

I have come across a rash of failed assemblies that have 0805 capacitors and resistors, bottom side glued, wave soldered and washed. Trouble shooter reported touching up the solder joints on a few areas and the boards would pass test. I had a look a
