Hey MoonMan, Did I catch in one of your fabulous threads that you're using Tetra stencils? I'm anxious to find out how you're liking them. We we're all set up to go to Tetras, then mgt decided to close down our factor

It's a four-spindle head. I've already learned the joys of the size of the nozzles...on a job that had an 0603 cap a bit too close to an SOIC. The first panel ran, and the cap placed after the IC...and I had parts everywhere. Got it figured out an

Hi Grant, In previous positions I've had experience with the Fuji CP43, CP6, CP642, CP643, CP65, IP3 & QP242. In operating, training and process engineering capacities. Presently, I'm working with 2 SMT lines (in a process engineering capacity) wit

Has anyone had experience with placing BGA on gold plated boards. I thought I read a while ago there was a problem with embrittlment causing cracked joints. If anyone has experience with this your feedback would be great. Mike Mike, You

Hi Mike, I haven't tried the 0201s with a Hyrda, but after seeing 20 reviews of your message without a response, I'll try and share my experience with 0402s on a non-Hydra machine. The 0402s are slow, but I managed to get some speed by maxing out

Thanks for all the responses. I do agree with what was said, and can certainly see reasons not to try. I'll write a little more about what we do. We are a defense contractor, and as I mentioned very high mix, low volume. We only have 1 SMT line.

Hello, I will be evaluating and qualifying two equipment types. The first is a fountain soldering device. I need practical advice on all the stuff you guys and gals know about as good, bad, ugly, best applications, setup, limitations, an

Has anyone had trouble waving and gluing 0603 R's and C's? At my company, our designers have "opened the floodgates" on bottom-side 0603's. We've got an EPK+ with rotary chip and omega wave but can't seem to get skip-free so
