The issue is on the table. Which is it? Are you ... * Loosing your gold plate when you remove the tape? [A tape test is a standard test for evaluating gold fingers. Check IPC-TM-650, test number wachacallit. Checkitaut.] OR * Putting tape o

Hi Thrasher7, We called it wash boards, any misprint from screen printer was at tight control ..and those wash boards when being flow down to the line have an identifier /marker , is a matter on isolation of the problem..... But I still can't think

I would like to have some advise or explaination about the IPC610 spec. Page 6-51 and 6-52 concerning the solder stains on gold finguers: On the page 6-51, it's recommended to inspect the gold finguers with the unaided eye, but on the page 6-52, th
