Dave and Pete No bad words against a good batch oven. I don't know the APS-oven mentioned but check out the description of the unique temperature-feedback system in our Ecosold at http://www.reflowsystems.com/press/PressReleases.pdf . As a matter o

We have been unimpressed with the capability and control of temperatures in batch ovens. We are unfamiliar with the oven you selected. Consider investing and using in a external temperature monitor [profiler].

Hi Andrea, Another good place to start in addition to the oven manufacturer is your solder paste vendor. They can help you select the correct paste and give you the right reflow profile to use for that paste. Keep in mind that most vendors (paste, s

Why would you have troubles if and when you switch? Isn't that the point of materials evaluation? Understanding the impact and material capability BEFORE "betting the farm on it". I would never stake my career on a solder paste without an Engineer

AXL, you could be right! I personally didn't switch they did it after i left. Is it possible that indium might have changed in the last couple of years? I remember Indiums specs stating 40% post residue? This was quite a bit higher than some othe

Here is a tip. Do an evaluation on materials. DO not trust what anyone says about solder paste. There are just too may "experts" out there peddling the brand of the week. You can begin with the brands listed, but do your homework. You know your
