What do you think about optimal setup for 8-hour working shift and 16-hour standby time. What is the most energy efficient setup for standby time? Complete cooldown or maintaining temperature in solder pot?

Forget all the bickering and semantics. EVERYONE IS RIGHT!! ...but then again, in soldering, there IS no right, wrong, or indifferent... just blame. :-) Soldering is, after all, the most difficult process with the most opportunities for defects.

I have a 5lb roll of .125" flux core 63/37 solder that I want to melt into a solid slug. Can this be done without making a huge mess and lighting something on fire ?

I hope that we have not lost much quality, but am still bothered by the way our select x is working. It seems to do very well when I can get the nozzle head within 5/1000 of an inch to the board as it passes. However, when I increase that distance

We picked up this old (circa late 80s) Seho 1135 machine last year for next to nothing. It needed a bit of TLC to bring it back to working order but it's 99% working now. The only problem left is that we cannot get sufficient height from the delta wa

Hi, 1. do not use flux-cored wire- the smell is bad and flux will evaporate anyway at the time of solder wire melting. 2. as suggested use solder bars, something like this: https://smtnet.com/company/index.cfm?fuseaction=view_company&company_id=39635

the SOIC encounter solder crack after reliability test, the common process is: SMT---manual soldering---IPT(in process test)---potting---T/C(thermal cycling,only add current and voltage)---B/T and F/T (burn in and functional test). the condition is 2

We have had this issue on our Delta 3 waves and determined that there are small pin holes in the solder pot. We had plates welded to the outside of our solder pot on the lead free wave and this bought us enough time until we could replace the wave, a

We are having an issue with the solder bars hanging the solder feeder dripping down the back side of the pot, and leaking in to the area where the terminal block for the elements on the pot are. We have tried aluminum tape to close off the gap betwee
