Does anyone know where I can buy text book for SMT soldering process. If it will be available on-line it would be easier for me to order. Thanks... Bong

Our friend Bob Willis does a good job of reviewing books. Check his site. Here's another list http://www.smtnet.com/forums/Index.cfm?CFApp=1&Message_ID=46719

Cool name! Bong. You must be from the Philippines.

The book that I grew up on as a kid right out of college who never saw a wave solder machine in his life was this one:

http://www.amazon.com/Handbook-Machine-Soldering-SMT-TH/dp/0471139041 "The Handbook of Machine Soldering" by Ralph W. Woodgate

This book does a great job explaining the principles and theory of soldering (although geared more toward wave-soldering).

I have read and referred to this one alot.

You're correct CK.

Additionally, Ralph Woodgate gave inspirational lectures on wave soldering. For years, he was on the SMTA lecture tour. He had a real talent for explaining the solder process. He'd be talking blablabla and DING ... you'd remember a a problem that you would like to have done a better job of sorting through, but the match was burning your fingers [figuratively speaking ... it's a no smoking area] and you just had to make do. And then, you'd wish you'd attended his lecture the previous time when he came through on tour.

Here's a list of some of his books http://users.rcn.com/woudyet/author.htm

Hi CK / Dave, Thanks for the book. I'll try to get one for this. Hope this will help a lot.

CK, you're right I'm from Philippines but I'm based now here in Beijing.

Bong,

How's the business in the Philippines? I hear it's a new hot spot for Electronics Manufacturing Services.

CK, I think electronic industry in Phils is still the same. What I hear is Vietnam or India are the target of the investors for electronic / semicon assembly.
