Hi, I'm an SMT refugee working in component manufacture - hey, times are hard! I've been asked by a customer to test some of my parts at high temperature on the wave - up to 360 deg Celsius. I've checked my wave and it's only capable of getting up

The pallets are made of a black composite that is 5MM thick, and yes, the bottom is beveled to the cut out space for the connectors. The wave solder machine is a Treiber, so the wave height is hand set. I always aim for the center of the leading edg

Thanks for the replies. I use a foam fluxor, so the pallet is well fluxed. This is my first expierence with this thick of a pallet. Maybe Russ has a handle on it when he says that the wave height is just too high.

Are you positive that the solder is sticking to the bottom of the fixture OR is it pushing the wave down so far that the solder is "squirting" out from underneath the pallet. This happens when deep/thick pallets are run at the same wave height as a n

Help!! Just got some new wave solder pallets in house. The pallets are 12 by 8 inches solid composite, with only two 1/2 inch by 1 inch spots cut out for the connectors. When they go over the wave, the solder wants to cling to the bottom of the pal

How thick is this pallet? 6mm, 8mm, 10mm? I would look at: Make sure you're pot height is correct (lead clearance). If you are burrying the pallet in the fountain, your going to "push" a large volume away. The solder "push" should not plow over t

I have seen the solder shoot out at least 4"-6" from both the leading and trailing edge when this happens. If the open pockets are real deep you may want to use a turbulent/chip wave for soldering, sometimes this leaves bridges however.
