important parameters - wave soldering | 28 October, 2013

Two most important parameters are: * Solder temperature is the temperature of the solder * Dwell time is the time that the board remains in contact with the molten solder

Several things that you should consider are: * First, here's how to design an experiment: http://src.alionscience.com/pdf/DOE.pdf

* Second, design pitfalls that can lead to solder shorts during wave solder: http://ipc-tech-question-online.ipc.org/2012/08/16/design-pitfalls-that-can-lead-to-solder-shorts-during-wave-solder/

* Third, a troubleshooting guide is always handy: http://www.solderworld.net/docs/wave-troubleshooting-guide.pdf

* Next, a good overview of process helps with context: http://www.ami.ac.uk/courses/topics/0225_wave/
