Clean to No Clean Process | 13 July, 2010

Guys, I'm looking for some articles or presentation materials that can convince my customer to convert to a no-clean process. I'm new in this forum i hope anyone can point me to some leads.

Thanks.

Chris

Probably, you need to make the same presentation to your customer that you made to your boss when you proposed changing to low-residue fluxes. Hey boss [customer], here's what's GREAT about low-residue flux. Here's how we can: * Lower our unit cost * Improve our product

Look at this link for some papers that may help: http://www.smtinfo.net/Db/_No-Clean%20Technology.html

Additional points are: * Some low res fluxes are cleanable * Recognize that some products just don't do well with low residue fluxes. If you find yourself in that situation, you will have some interesting choices to make. * The one time that it makes fairly inarguable sense to use low res flux is on boards with low stand-off components.
