Low volume quality PCBs (how to)

Aug 15, 2006 | Bake your solder mask and then solder coat. If you are going to put an immersion finish like Osp, gold, tin or silver you would have to do a Micro etch to clean the copper prior to placing the surface finish. Regards, Board House


Aug 3, 2006 | Is your squeegee cleaning process adequate to guarantee no transfer of paste residue between jobs? Personally I wouldn't risk it, but then again it's easy for me to say since we don't do lead free.


Aug 3, 2006 | Curious if anyone knows... When switching back and forth from Leaded paster to Lead free if cleaned with alcohol can the same squeegees be used? If so could anyone direct me to any links that would back this up. Thanks, Simon SMT Tech, Edge Tech Industries

Solder on gold finger

Jul 18, 2006 | Clean up!, check all conveyors for paste, the printer, oven. If you are splattering in the oven than you need a better profile or better paste, one of the two, maybe both. Hope was helpful Russ

Justification on buying machine (Reflow/Wave)

Jun 19, 2006 | Because some lead free solders are very corrosive to anything but titanium. Also "clean it very well" is kind of a crap shoot, isn't it? Did you get your solder tested for impurities and lead %age after you did the swap?

BGA Underfill Rework

Jun 7, 2006 | This is true but even the so called reworkable underfill takes a lot of effort. We use a loctite reworkable that requires heat to soften the underfill. Once the component is removed we use acetone and a swab to scrub the pcb clean. This can be very time consuming.

Lead Free and ICT

May 10, 2006 | I agree! I am using a SAC305 no clean from Alpha. I have noticed that even hand probing with volt meter leads requires me to press very hard on the pads to bust through the flux residue.

Flux clogging up exhaust ducts

May 9, 2006 | It does specify when to clean. But when we open it up, there's not much flux in the containment. The containment doesnt seem to trap the flux. infact, we hv more flux in the duct than the containment. anyway, we will talk to MFGR to get their recommendation. Thanks.

Reflow oven/wave solder air quality filter

May 9, 2006 | Grease filters work well. They're cheap, easy to clean and come in all sizes. Will not reduce your air flow by much either.

Tip life of soldering irons with lead-free (SAC305)

May 2, 2006 | I also heard that fluxes are more agressive in lead free alloys. Try maybe to clean your tip more often ?!?!?

Component Terminals with silver plating

Apr 20, 2006 | Silver tarnish on lead could compromise the soldering, mainly in case of No Clean process. Make sure components are correctly packaged and stored. Check the vintage ( Manufacturing Data Code) and in order to avoid them to get old on shelf make sure FI-FO procedure is in place. etc. Regards......GS

Apr 18, 2006 | we didnt see it as a potential risk, main accumilations we around the entry and exit curtains so we lived with it and cleaned (quick wipe with acetone) once a week.

White residue inside the reflow oven

Apr 13, 2006 | I had something similar a while back it looked like fibreglass insulation in my case (was using no clean flux not water based), i took some and melted it with a soldering iron and it reacted like flux. and i tried disolving it with acetone.


Apr 11, 2006 | Dougs, Make sure they use the same solder that you plan to use. In my case they were unable to get acceptable solder joints with our solder. We use no-clean P1 flux in our cored solder. So I recommend you try before you buy. Jerry

Omniflo 5 conveyor

Mar 27, 2006 | The only problem with the Tribol is PB Free profiles. At thses temps, the Tribol smokes and stinks bad. It also has a tendancy to carbonize. I find myself having to use easy off to clean the chains.

Omniflo 5 conveyor

Mar 24, 2006 | Hi AR Nice job on the chain/rail cleaning. I would contact Speedline Electrovert tech support, 800.737.8110 to assist in trouble shooting. They can walk you through using a meter to measure input and output current to the SC card and make sure that is the issue. thanks marc

Omniflo 5 conveyor

spareparts to JOT conveyor

Mar 20, 2006 | Spare parts? Like what? If it's your belt motor, try cleaning out the gear box attached to it. 99% of the time it's the lube in this gear box that dries out and turns to glue.

Omniflo 5 conveyor

Mar 20, 2006 | We just went through this exact same problem on an OmniFlo. We did all the stuff Marc talks about and the problem went away completely. As Marc states, clean the chain guides! You will will see lots of junk near the last zones(s).

Flux appearance

Mar 17, 2006 | It's a no clean paste. Yes it's a single lead (sometimes a few at random locations) and i do notice that corner leads (or close to it) fails more.

LLP Device

Mar 8, 2006 | Chunks nailed it. You should not expect to see a perfect side fillet on this part, especially using no-clean, it's probably bare copper, hard to wick solder up the side of the lead.

Wave Solder Issue or maybe not?

Mar 1, 2006 | I would definitely try a more agressive flux. Are you using a W.S. or No-Clean? And of course check the usual preheat temp flux application dwell time immersion depth

ESD Flooring

Feb 27, 2006 | If you are going for high margin business then you may want to ditch the blue smurf coats & go for white - they are a bugger to keep clean but look like you have a dedicated team of scientists. (Giving people clipboards & safey glasses helps complete the picture).


Feb 9, 2006 | Se�or Tech If you want clean board using a dish waher, you must run deionized water. If you run DI water through a dishwasher, it will cut through those flimsy pipes like fire driven by Sana Anna Winds through dry brush.


Feb 3, 2006 | Does anybody know how could I clean pcbs with immersion silver finising ? I have several boards that got oxidized for having been waiting too long to be processed after opening the package.
