Hentec Industries/RPS Publishes an Engineer's Guide to Component Re-Conditioning Process

Apr 13, 2021

Gold plating dissolves rapidly during soldering and can result in gold embrittlement. This tech paper examines how to re-condition electronic components prior to soldering.

Newman Lake, WA (April 13, 2021) – Hentec Industries/RPS Automation, a leading manufacturer of selective soldering, lead tinning and solderability test equipment, announces that it has published an engineer’s guide to the component re-conditioning process.  This tech paper encompasses critically important information about re-conditioning of electronic components prior to soldering and is entitled “An Engineer’s Guide to Component Re-Conditioning Using the Robotic Hot Solder Dip Process.”  This 6-page tech paper outlines essential information for high reliability circuit board assembly applications and can be downloaded by accessing www.circuitnet.com/papers.

Topics covered within this publication include gold embrittlement, gold removal, component re-conditioning, BGA de-balling, re-tinning standards compliance and solderability test methods.  The advantages and disadvantages of outsourcing component re-conditioning to an external service provider vs, insourcing with an internal component re-tinning operation are covered including cost and production backlogs.
