PTH Voiding Caused by Gold Plated Leads

May 21, 2019 | violate this requirement). In all cases we have attempted different no clean fluxes and combinations of increased and decreased process parameters (flux deposition, preheat, solder temp, dwell time, localized preheat) without eliminating the voiding. The only process so far which has been shown

Aug 29, 2018 | the defective ones. You certainly could migrate to a more aggressive flux - but to what avail? - I do not know about your final product but I would be wary of changing fluxes so quickly without regards to other processes going on after soldering (eg. Conformal Coatings). Typically you will need to clean

Mar 15, 2017 | the physics directly to LEDs as well. Regarding the reduction in Thermal performance, it's real, not theoretical - the thermal conductivity of Copper is about 16,000 times better than air. However I have no idea what the thermal conductivity of a no clean flux is as that is probably going to be what

Quad Feeder Issue

May 25, 2016 | I tend to get issue on and off with the feeders either stalling and/or running slow/noisy. They are actually pretty easy to clean and maintain. If you take off the side panel of the feeder you will see a few gears, belts and a motor. The first thing to check is that the motor can turn freely

These machines are more than twenty years old and have never failed beyond what some minor cleaning up can fix. We have looked into selective soldering, but we have

Solder Pot Volume reducers

Nov 13, 2014 | is to stay away from any metal as the tin will likely dissolve and contaminate your solder pot. I haven't done this but I would recommend a stone more dense than solder because you wouldn't want some brick floating round the pump space. You would also want it to be clean and crack free so no bits of silica

Solder joint dewetting or non wetting

Nov 5, 2013 | that are exhibiting the dewetting, to see what's going on thermally. If you're dealing with boards that have been sitting around for a little bit (>3-6 months, say, depending on the environment), I might consider a ramp-soak-spike profile to allow sufficient time for the flux to clean any potential contaminants

So I cleaned the pick up laser sensors. and it worked again until about the third panel. same problem, same amount of LED's placed. wired (just like how the movie went) I think "I can not believe it is a laser problem", it came up with good minimum

Wave solder flow over back plate

Feb 21, 2013 | The backflow in the wave started to become very important with the development of no-clean/no residue fluxes. These fluxes don’t have (or at least shouldn’t have) rosin, resin or other vehicles in the formulation which encapsulate surface oxides from the wave. The way you describe in the post

Board wash/water heater

Feb 13, 2013 | (pretty average estimate for dish washers, so, I'm applying it to a batch washer). With inlet temps between 60 and 65 degrees, to get the 140-150 degree temps that I want for cleaning water soluble fluxes, I'm looking at 80 degree plus temp rises. I've found some tankless units out there that can handle

Reflow oven reliability?

Most other makers are using galvanised steel or painted steel inners and single phase cap start-run blowers. Cleaning SS is so much easier and less particle generation over life of oven. Other

Reflow oven reliability?

Sep 10, 2012 | normally run a thermal slug through our ovens once a week to evaluate their heating capacity and use SPC to evaluate the recorded data. This helps us determine when they need to be cleaned for example. Heller claims to have the lowest power consumption, but I don't know anything about their real world

Aug 14, 2012 | can use. The pastes have a higher flux content which means a little more residue than most pastes. It does a nice job of printing its very flexable and there is little clean up, no screens to order. It uses the gerbers to program. it does take longer to program because you are always trying to take

NONE of them...I repeat NONE of them showed any significant changes in yields when looking at no-clean formulations. In addition, let me be clear that I am reffering

Omron AOI

Nov 4, 2011 | From what I have seen of the Omron software your most interesting challenge and prerequisite for a clean and complete inspection is a full understanding of the color triangle and it's settings. I know you can find almost the same interface/GUI in the open source software GIMP. To find this you may

Make sure the site is perfectly clean, skip the slolder paste, use tacky flux and control the ramp rate, especially from

When does SMT inspection/touch-up become rework?

Feb 11, 2011 | will let our formal inspectors inspect and any defects will be sent back to SMT for rework. The operator will glance at each board off the reflow, noting any gross abnormality that must be addressed immediately and to remove solder balls before cleaning. Kris is correct in saying that all defects from

Nov 20, 2009 | disappear.. This problem also can disappear if we clean the motherboard bottom side, especially near to the BGA bottom side...This action lead them to believe that this could be flux residue that induce this defect... However,as far as I know, flux residue can cause this problem when its absorb enough

Bad solder joints

May 29, 2009 | We are getting what looks like cold solder joints on one of our boards. The boards have an aluminum substrate, and use OSP plating. The solder is lead free - 96.5 Sn, 3.0 Ag, .5 Cu. The flux is no clean. When we first had the problem, my solder profile was set for typical optimal - 90sec soak, 60
