Hentec Industries/RPS Automation, a leading manufacturer of selective soldering, lead tinning and solderability test equipment, is pleased to announce that it has received an order from Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions for a Pulsar solderability system. The Pulsar utilizes the highly proven dip-and-look test method which is a qualitative type test performed by comparative analysis after specimens are dipped in a bath of flux and molten solder.
An advantage of the dip-and-look method is since it is based on the comparative analysis it can be performed rapidly by shop floor personnel with minimal training as well as requires significantly lower capital investment than a wetting balance test system.
The Pulsar solderability test system complies with all applicable solderability test standards including MIL-STD-883 Method 2003, IPC J-STD-002, and MIL-STD-202 Method 208.

In this Q&A, Rob Rowland, director of engineering at Axiom Electronics, discusses his new IPC APEX EXPO Professional Development course, “Reflow Profiling Simplified,” on how to create a standardized methodology to accurately generate new reflow soldering profiles. Rob explains, “In this class, I’ll explain how I approached this work to help others develop similar methodologies for creating their own reflow soldering profiles. My presentation also includes the basic reflow profile recipes I have been using for the past 20 years.”
