There is a new toy I received today: a NeoDen TM-240A automatic desktop pick and place machine! I’ve kept my eyes on this baby for a quite a while, and finally decided to make a purchase last week. The shipping was very fast: DHL from China, a total

I do a lot of thermal cycle testing of new components for my company and often when I lay out a test board I'm trying to simulate 4 or 6 layer boards but I don't need them for routing so I just use a solid fill of a cross-hatch pattern. I've done it

unique mnf/mnf part number. - Be meticulous on maintaining your WO Boms. Train your employees to not circumnavigate keeping the WOBOM accurate to what they kitted/placed on the board. If you keep the one to one part number relationship above this is

Sure you can use SPC charting on the wave setup parameters to warn of impending problems. Examples of useful points of analysis are: * Dwell * Temperature * Pot analysis Certainly there's a range of other process controls that could be monitored.

ECD sells the MOLE, and they sell both the Oven Rider and the Wave Rider to accompany it. The thing is, you can profile both an oven and a wave machine without either if you're willing to just solder your thermocouples to a board. The nice thing ab

Put the new stuff in the back and pull from the front. A pass through from stores makes that a lot easier. Bar codes are a wonderful thing if you can get people to use them. Wand it into stores then wand it sequentially into production via a queue.

Good answer slthomas! This has got to be the biggest misconception out there. To perform SPC on a wave process you must first perfrom DOE to determine the critical parameters and or control limits. For example you will need temp reading devices tha

Hey MoonMan, Did I catch in one of your fabulous threads that you're using Tetra stencils? I'm anxious to find out how you're liking them. We we're all set up to go to Tetras, then mgt decided to close down our factory - Dooop! "Foiled"

On over printing, the general issues are: * Paste deposits being so large that when reflowing, collapse onto many, rather than a single solder mass. * Paste expanding during heating and being close to other solder deposits and bridging [as you say].
