Vapor Phase Soldering
We can reflow solder Printed Circuit Boards Assemblies (PCBA’s) by using convection ovens, infrared ovens but also with the aid of vapor-phase ovens. We see them quite often at companies that build prototypes or [...]
IPC J-STD-001, there’s no getting around it!
The IPC J-STD-001 is increasingly required in contracts worldwide and as a result the demand for certification is increasing. And this is not just because the defence-industry is running at full power, but also because [...]
No-Clean Flux residue, should we clean it or not?
The name “no clean flux”, “low solids flux”, or “low activated flux” suggests that these flux residues do not need to be removed because they are harmless to the end product. However, this is [...]
Measuring the Soldering Temperature Profile
Measuring is Knowing. Guessing is Missing. Measure the temperature profiles and other variables of your reflowsoldering, wavesoldering, vapour-phase-soldering- and rework & repair processes. This can be accomplished quite easily with the Smart Profiler SuperM.O.L.E.® [...]
Solder mask, sometimes also referred to as solder stop mask or solder resist, is a thin layer of polymer that is usually applied to the copper traces of a printed circuit board (PCB). This [...]
Is selective soldering a good replacement for the wave solder machine?
Selective soldering has been on the rise in recent years. Sometimes the selective soldering system completely replaces the wave solder machine. Ersa-ECOSELECT-1 More and more we see that 80% or even more [...]
