Hi all.We have between 2 and 3 percent waste of components.The software gives info about the whole waste and I am interested what's the limit for component waste?Where I can read about it?Are there any tables with given limits? Any posts,please!

It will vary by placement machine mfg. and type. I had 4x Fuji CP3 (turret chip-shooter) and 2x Fuji IP2 (split axis general app-fine-pitch)and tracked component shrinkage at 0.05%-0.5% on average. Above 0.5% triggered maint. & process eng. response.

I do assume the only machine capable of reporting rejected components is the placement machine. 2-3% is certainly way too much. Expect rejects ( out of visible tolerance ) in the permille range but not percent. If components are rejected with vacuum

We dump the paste in with the dross in a 55 gallon drum. It's all hazardus waste the only difference is paste has flux and dross is who knows what. We use waste recycler. I don't know if we get as much money back as you would from the manufacturer

One of the safest ways to dispose of urethane conformal coating waste is to cure it. Once it's cured it no longer is considered a hazardous waste. In the uncured state it is. We have tubes of epoxy adhesives (out of shelf life) that we do the same

We are currently storing small amounts of our conformal coating waste. Recently someone asked how we would dispose of the material and I hadn't the slightest idea because this is a new process for us. I started to look into proper disposal for the
