Hi fellow professionals, Wondering whether anyone has experience with solder splashing from component terminal. Have identified the source using the component without printing solder paste on PCB. Wondering the root-cause of the solder splashing fr

Could be that your temperature ramp up rate is too fast. This could cause the flux in the solder paste to burn off too rapidly. When that happens, it can expand as it heats up and burns off, causing the solder to get spread out from the pad.

Hello Henry, I believe some further clarification may be needed for someone to assist. Is the component already soldered prior to reflow? Does the component have paste already applied going through reflow? (or as per my previous question, is it al

Blew chunks - thanx for thinking outside the box. Of course there's two sides to every story. Just last week I had a new operator "splash" a couple of boards. Top solder was great, it was all one big solder bridge. Come to find out, the operator forg

We're trying a selective soldering pallet for the first time with mixed reviews. Are solder balls a prevalent problem with this process? Most of them seem to correspond with pallet wall locations....is it too much turbulence from the rotary chip wav

Also, solder splashes can be due to contamination, for example, on the terminals of components. In the past, had a problem with solder splashes on a seemingly standard SMD component. The reason was the incorrect nickel plating process of the componen

My company has been having issues with a lot of solder balls, solder splash, and flux balls all over a specific board. Now this is one of the only companies that require us not to clean our boards after our work is finished but this is also causing a

Hi Dave, Thanks on your feedback, May I know the how's the contributing of Moisture content of bare board and the Thickness of the copper plating in the PTH to the solder ball and solder splash during hand soldering process ?
