Help required selecting reflow oven

Jun 27, 2019 | Hi, I have a small assembly line that consists of a Semi-Automatic Stencil machine, a Samsung Pick and Place, a small IR reflow oven and a wave soldering machine. The reflow oven is presenting the biggest bottleneck. The machine is a small IR (T960) machine is a 5-zone that has 3 heaters above

Please Help: Pace TF 1800 or Finetech CorePlus

Apr 2, 2019 | capability but we used stencils that allowed you to apply paste to the BGA solder balls themselves. It also has a really cool underside heater that can be adjusted so that it gets much closer to the bottom of a pc board, which makes it easier to reflow tough massive boards. I believe it has 0201 placement

Compact Reflow Ovens?

Mar 19, 2018 | Another critical part of a process with a large board is support. Most commonly this is a bed of pins e.g something like red-e-set but there are other solutions. Support with a large panel will be critical for printing to get a good gasket between PCB and stencil and fairly important during

AOI Machine Daily Verification

Jan 11, 2016 | You can do the so called "Golden Sample" with defects from the process. The making of the defects on the board is very important to be as much close to the real ones from the production. How I do it - after the printer I remove paste on some pads, so I can simulate missing solder (blocked stencil

DPAK's sliding off pad during reflow

My first recommendation is to examine the part's corresponding pads on the PCB as well as the solder paste aperture's on the stencil. Check to see that they follow the part manufacturer's recommendations. You can also

BGA Pad with Irregular Pad size

Sep 5, 2014 | ) Stencil apperture size 0.2 mm (as per gerber size) My questions are, 1. What is the effect of small BGA Pad on the PCBA? Currently we have high rejection rate for this PCBA, but we cannot find (yet) it's correlation to the BGA. 2. Will there'll be reliability issue due to this? I'm thinking due

What is a typical SMT placement defect rate?

My thought was to make a composite pad the shape of the two pads overlaid, but have separate stencils, applying solder paste only for the particular

Pick and place machine for small productions. Any suggestions?

Sep 19, 2013 | We have already one desktop oven and a manual stencil printer. And we have a quite complete soldering bench with several JBC tools. We also have stock for all active elements we use.

How to choose a new solder paste

May 26, 2011 | I agree with Dave on the processing issues, but there are others: Print speed capability (do you get good deposits at various print speeds), humidity exposure (our plant did get to the high side so moisture absorption on the board/stencil was an issue), delay time (how long can the paste sit

So you have to invest, IC

Researching placement machines - where do I start?!

Nov 5, 2009 | Before you buy a manual screen printer try to do it by hand. We hand stenciled boards with 19mil pitch parts for three years with decent results, with your parts it should be simple. lay the board on a piece of ESD bubblewrap, the kind with small bubbles, and lay the stancil over it, either buy a

Vapour phase soldering - problem

Aug 18, 2009 | Hi, Yes, I think this sounds like a form of tomb-stoning, and we used vapor phase until it ended up driving us totally nuts trying to deal with tomb-stoning. We tried everything, and all kinds of stencil apertures. Vapor phase is an amazing process in theory, however in practice this tomb

Electrically-Conductive Tapes application advice?

Aug 1, 2009 | probably, the PCB will be low volume(<100) so it should be ok to do manual on all boards. It's just that i had to keep the solder protrusion/electrical connection as low profile as possible(<1mm high). I will try controlling the stencil thickness you mentioned. And also the adhesive tape method which
