How are Component manufactuers addressing the PB free solder inititive? Since I am told higher processing Temps will be required to reflow the pb-free alloy.

Hi, Is it necessary to have a tunnel nitrogen? Is it a very common practise amongst contract manufacturers ?

I want to know the advantage of using complete inert soldering wave machine (with Nitrogen, Tunnel concept) in comparison to use just a soldering machine withe inerted solder pot. Thanks

Hello davide, the biggest advantage you'll find with a complete N2 tunnel is the minimization of oxidation during board preheating. Using only an inerted solder pot allows the oxidation to build up throughout the preheat stages and introduces contami

Hello Kris, No, it's not necessary to have a nitrogen tunnel setup. A nitrogen tunnel allows a process to go the extra step in providing higher quality through less defects. I can't really speculate on it's use in contract manufacturers mainly becaus

Hi Joe, Try: S03X7C-56M from koki - http://www.ko-ki.co.jp which has cobalt in it to extend tip life or: SN100C from Nihon Superior, which is a nickel stabilised alloy that also extends tip life. The Koki solder flows better that any other leadfr
