  • How to improve your selective soldering effectiveness
  • Programming tips and tricks
  • How to reduce selective soldering defects
  • Advanced process troubleshooting techniques
  • How to reduce post-solder rework and increase yields

This classroom session focuses on the technical aspects of the selective soldering process and describes the process variables to enhance the flexibility, reliability and quality provided by all types of selective soldering equipment.  Your questions about using a selective solder process, and differences in process parameters when working with tin-lead and lead-free solder alloys will be answered during this course.  Topics Include:

  • Fundamentals of through-hole soldering
  • Solderability issues
  • Lead-free and tin-lead solder alloys
  • Flux deposition and flux activation
  • No-clean processing
  • Design guidelines
  • Quality measurement
  • Process troubleshooting guidelines
  • Process optimization methods

This workshop entitled “Mastering Selective Soldering Processing and Manufacturability” features a combination of classroom curriculum and hands-on training that is designed to educate and enhance an attendee’s working knowledge of the overall selective soldering process.  This workshop will be presented by well-known process expert Bob Klenke, Principal Consultant with ITM Consulting.  He has more than 15 years of direct hands-on experience with selective soldering technology and is a frequent instructor for selective soldering, wave soldering and X-ray inspection workshops at APEX and SMTA International conferences.

This highly informative workshop is offered at no cost to all attendees courtesy of ACE Production Technologies and DIVSYS International and covers all aspects of the selective soldering process.  For more information about this selective soldering workshop, or to register for the workshop, contact Tammie Fish at tammie.fish@divsys.com or call 317-405-9427, Ext. 1004.

Failures and Reliability in Soldering

07/09/2019 | Michael Gouldsmith and Zen Lee, Thermaltronics
The definition of failure is "the lack of success in doing or achieving something, especially in relation to a particular activity." If the activity is concerning a soldering process, such a failure can have a downstream impact far beyond the actual solder joint. In this regard, it is first necessary to understand what constitutes a good solder joint because appearance is too often deemed a success.
