Maybe I was not clear in my original post. So we have boards that have SMD components on one side and TH components on the opposite side. We want to assemble the boards using our SMT and Wave lines. Now the problem is that if we solder the SMD firs

Thank you very much for your informative and helpful reply. I have a few more questions:) 1- So for the case 1: should I apply the glue to the PCB with the same method as I apply solder paste? (with screen printer and squeegee). If so, I would guess

Not an easy question to answer with out seeing the board. There is selective soldering, gluing, maybe a wave soldering pallet. As DaveF said since your asking the question I would assume your shops expertise is limited.

We used process 1 that dave detailed. We used screen print adhesive on one line and pin transfer on another. The adhesive dots were applied to the body of the component allowing the wave to form the solder joints.

Yes, there are ways to machine process boards like this. The devil is in the detail. In no particular order, your choices are: Process flow #1: * Print chipbonder on the surface mount side for SMT parts * Mount SMT components * Cure adhesive, if r

Franx: In response to your follow-up questions ... For the case 1: Q1: Should I apply the glue to the PCB with the same method as I apply solder paste? (with screen printer and squeegee). A1: Correct. Glue can be stencil printed, dispensed, or pin t
