Apr 15, 2008 | Contaniminates are always a issue. What chemicals do you use? Do you plasma clean? Are the production personnel wereing finger cots to reduce added contaminates?
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?
Mar 11, 2008 | we use loctite adhesive through our dj2000 valve 2-3 shifts a day 5 days a week I clean the entire valve out 1 every 2 weeks we take just the needle off and soak it between jobs
Mar 10, 2008 | If you are running 1 shift 8 hours a day, I would PM the valve at least twice a week depending on dispense medium. With the opoxy I used, I cleaned the valve and needle every day.
Mar 3, 2008 | Does the machine act slow when cold? Might need to be cleaned out. One year old? No warrenty?
Feb 18, 2008 | I should have mentioned... the only flux we use for the hand soldering is wire-core, no bottle flux.
Feb 18, 2008 | If the hand soldering is done right and you use little to no extra flux (other than whats in the sol
Feb 7, 2008 | Bi monthly?!!? What are your exhausts getting clogged with? You have that much dust in the air that cleaning every two weeks is necessary?
Feb 6, 2008 | Something else I forgot to bring up....can we get by using our normal water soluble process or are we going to be able to clean under these things? The BGAs have .18mm and .30mm ball heights.
Feb 2, 2008 | As a minimum, we clean the printer setup every shift change. Probably the best advice on this is from your paste supplier.
Feb 1, 2008 | Its most likely flux residue from your paste. This is normal in my experience. Just clean it out. Some paste fluxes are waaaay worse than others.
Jan 29, 2008 | Just wondering if there is anyone out there using a national (US) company to provide ESD smocks, cleaning and repair. Spending a ton of money handing them out to people just to have to replace them in a short period of time. Any recommendations??
Jan 21, 2008 | We see delamination at Mold compound to substrate interface when tested for MSL3. We haven't tested
Jan 10, 2008 | You may want to ask Zestron to be sure. We have a batch cleaner with pure DI water. The first time we cleaned some of these boards in it we had a bit of a mess around the cleaner.
Oct 5, 2007 | Is there any one using VOC Free Flux on a Point to Point Soldering machine, How well does it work ? and what Flux works the best, we would be using No-Clean. Thanks Steve
Jun 27, 2007 | Dave Try Transair Legris, They have a pretty slick system which will compare in cost to your black pipe but offers many advantages and it is clean.

Jun 20, 2007 | In addition to your local water departmet I would suggest that you also contact the EPA.
Jun 13, 2007 | Hi All, I have heard mention that you can use a dishwasher to wash Boards . Are these standard use at home washers ? If anyone has the time can they please advise more i.e. what water / cleaning agent is used etc. aj...
Jun 6, 2007 | I am experiencing issues with the chipwave of this machine. The solder is not smooth and looks very rippled. I have cleaned the system but with the same results. This condition is leaving me with no-solders. Anyone seen this. Also should the nitrogen be on when the machine is in idle with conveyor
May 31, 2007 | At the end of the day, you won't notice a difference, while soldering, but if you clean the flux residues.

Apr 26, 2007 | We've had our Aqueous Technologies 600-LD for four years or so now with just about zero problems...
Apr 23, 2007 | We agree with Grayman. You should clean your fixtures. If you apply [leave] low residue flux in amounts greater than the supplier recommendation, the remaining residue can cause damgerous corrosion. Certainly it is then no longer low residue.
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
Mar 9, 2007 | Why would you want one of these in your clean room? http://www.sinclairc5.com/ I suppose less people would see you....
Mar 6, 2007 | You cannot put these machines in a clean room enviornment, but if you must go with the MYdata a Philips Assembleon. They are easy to program and changeover a simple. Foot print should suit your needs. Where are you located?
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.
Feb 7, 2007 | Thank you guys. So to summarize - no spec, just need to have decent cleaning... Are you familiar with dust events that caused burning of test stations ? Thanks Ayelet
Jan 18, 2007 | Change pastes, although insufficient heating may leave excessive residues. Is this on one board or all products? No Clean or water soluble? Do you profile accurately or "guesstimate" your settings?
Jan 15, 2007 | celsius or fahrenheit? I am not entirely familiar with the deeper details of HASL, but 130F-140F is adequate to clean many of the water-soluble fluxes used for component soldering.
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? The solder paste is SnPb, no-clean. The paste mfgr. recommended profile produces voiding and incomplete solder coverage/wetting.
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.
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 18, 2006 | Sometimes I would have to agree!! Wonder how they clean it all up? and how long does that robot last anyway? hahaha Russ
Dec 15, 2006 | Ionic Cleanliness-No clean residues - Got my answer!
Dec 15, 2006 | unfortunately you need to increase your maintenance on these ovens, I would doubt if anything is wrong with your equipment. the Flux accumulation is normal, and you are putting alot of flux through those ovens. Just clean more often Russ
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
Nov 9, 2006 | What are the pros and cons between type 3 and type 4 no clean solder paste (SnPb)?
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.
