Why are you printing paste on test via? In the old days, we probed soldered pads to cushion impact force of probing. Is that still a reasonable practice?

We still use Via as test points. so we need to paste Via. Pasting will make better contact with probes compare to test via without solder.

Thanks for info regarding rotating probe head. We do not recommending to use this probes as it may damage bare board as it will pierce thru board and will shorted etches.. Avoid using this probe for PWBA

dont usually see this unless the Rosin hasnt been hardened due to low reflow or excessive pressure on blades squeezing flux out so you have flux rich areas. Are these boards also flow soldered?

3% NDF. We using 8oz 90 degree blade type razor probes, still same issue. Is there stencil we can use or selective pasting test via so flux will not build in testvia. any help or guidance will be appreciate.

Yes, we have try different Flux, probes. etc... also not to paste vs Paste Via, but still we have ~3% NDF due to contact issue. I am looking for selective pasting with less flux dispenser.Any idea or anyone has used? What about plug via before pas

Hi Vikram, Have you looked at the rotating flux buster style pins? A few people do them, but this is probably the best illustration: https://ingun.com/en/Products/ProductGroups/ICT_FCT/CategoryFolder/RotatingTestProbes We also find that the longer
