wave soldering and solder bridge

Electronics Forum | Mon Dec 17 11:55:08 EST 2007 | chef

I recently had the same problems, solder bridges on every thing I made, different customers boards, etc. I wave with no-clean flux. As I sorted out problems (pin holes, blow holes, splatter, etc.) I found a lot of variable factors. I changed flux,

Solder beads and wave soldering

Electronics Forum | Mon Jul 10 09:25:47 EDT 2006 | nodlac

Here is a nugget from the Data Sheet... Wave Soldering: Excess moisture on the PCB during soldering may lead to random solder balling and poor wetting of some solder joints. IT IS IMPORTANT that the flux solvent carrier (water) is fully evaporated a

No solder and solder bridge after Wave solder machine

Electronics Forum | Thu Nov 17 21:46:48 EST 2005 | C. Kolokoy

With DIP type components, a sub-par fluxing method (foaming a no-clean), and a chip wave where one is not needed are formulas for bridging and insufficient wetting. If you have SMD's on the wave solder side of the board greater than 0603, and no SOT

SMT Solder paste and wave flux evaluation

Electronics Forum | Fri Jan 28 12:29:01 EST 2005 | Bob R.

We use the exact same method Chunks outlined for evaluating just about anything we're going to roll out worldwide, whether it's a material or a machine. List your factors (print speed, solder spread, etc), assign each a weight, evaluate each paste a

OSP finish and Omnix 5002 solder paste(SnPb)

Electronics Forum | Sat May 15 11:27:26 EDT 2010 | davef

We'd expect both OSP poor wetting and improper reflow recipe to show-up in more places than just this one component. But if those are the only choices, we'll go for 'wrong solder paste.' Ooops, that's not one of the choices. Ok, OK, we'll take poo

Selective soldering pallets and solder balls

Electronics Forum | Tue Dec 10 14:10:38 EST 2002 | Randy Villeneuve

Steve, I wave solder most if not all our boards with selective wave pallets. I did not catch if the solder balls were on top of the board or on the bottom but that will make a difference on what to do to get rid of them. Pallets are good and bad. On

Leaded and Lead-Free Wave Parameters

Electronics Forum | Fri May 23 18:55:20 EDT 2008 | gregoryyork

This is one of the biggest mistakes with the Lead Free process. We have all listened to the 'industry experts' and followed their advice and unfortunately got it wrong. Keep the dwell times (dependant on alloy selection) the same as Leaded so you are

Contamination/process issues of SMT and wave soldered pcb's

Electronics Forum | Fri Jul 04 09:10:53 EDT 2003 | davef

With poorly cured mask: * Wave soldering: Expect to see thin wavy band of dross imbedded in the mask in the wave solder side. * Reflow soldering: Expect to see a pinto board where the two tones of mask are [1] normal color and [2] a lighter color, al

Contamination/process issues of SMT and wave soldered pcb's

Electronics Forum | Thu Jul 03 03:23:04 EDT 2003 | loz

I have been advised recently about pcb manufacturers, that somehow or other supply pcb's with contamination. Visually they are fine, but problems arise during SMT manufacture, ie solder balling, non-wetting on pads, and also during wave solder proces

SPC and Wave

Electronics Forum | Fri Jul 15 13:28:55 EDT 2005 | Brian

A process consists of much more than just thee machine. When developing a cause and effect diagram ffor the process, there are many parameters that fall outside the machine itself. There are Man, Machine, Methods, and Materials. Just monitoring th
