What caused this reflow issue?

expired solder paste

Apr 4, 2008 | Thanks for the reply. Just one more question. If there is less solvent but the residues are harder to clean. would there be more contaminant left on the boards? Has anyone did a cleanliness test?

Nordson/Asymtek Jet Dispense DJ2000

Mix Technology Board Processes

Help me to impress my boss

Apr 2, 2007 | Hi, I wish that anyone who developed software for SMT would hire a graphic designer to help make the user interface look good and clean looking. Good design sets us apart from the animals, and is important! Regards, Grant

battery pad

Feb 28, 2007 | Some no-cleans will pool flux on the top of the solder joint which acts like an insulator. I normally do not paste "contact" pads. You can have your board house HASL them if you need the extra bump on the pad.

Soldering to an OSB surface

Jan 12, 2007 | Do you have any pointers concerning the oven setup and profile if you are soldering a module with bottom connections and gold pads to a pwb with an OSB finish?

Really need Omniflow 7 replacement cooling zone blower motor!!

Dec 22, 2006 | Hi, We have refurbished blowers. Cleaned them, changed bearings, capacitor. These parts are standard parts, you will find them in "any" hardware store and Radio Shack type dealers.


Dec 21, 2006 | Ditto what Russ said. We are doing the same with the same results. We also will add 10-15mils to the toe end of the pads to have some chance at forming a toe fillet. MFG'r recommended padstacks are not to be trusted. We only process with no-clean chemistry as well.

Wave flux and profiling

Dec 19, 2006 | Grant, Why don't you try a water-base flux which is No-clean, VOC-free also? I have tried the 270WR flux from AIM with good results even on lead-free process. My $0.02, George

Dec 7, 2006 | Has anyone experimented with the Amtech 4300 flux that claims to be a no-clean flux that is easily removed with water? If so, how did it go? Is this flux truly removable with water only while creating adequate solder joints? -OtheRuss

Board washer

Nov 7, 2006 | Thanks for all the info guys. The biggest issue I have on cleaning is under QFNs and the like. But even an 0805 or 0603 will give us trouble now and again. Like I said, our current system isn't making me happy. It's looking like Electrovert is the winner here. Thanks again.
