Rigid + Flex PCB Wave Solder? | 17 February, 2015

Hi all,

We got a customer wanted us to run a PCB which is (Rigid+Flex), to be specific its looks like [T], T's leg is Flex and Top is Rigid. We have 8 TH parts and wanted to run PCBs through wave, but without damaging Flex and also we don't want to go for selective carrier just for this product spending much on carrier. Please suggest Wave settings or any other methods to follow to run through Wave successfully and efficiently.

If you do not want to invest in a wave pallet, then you'll have to find a way to equalize your thermal mass across the PCBA so your machine settings work for both "PCBs" (Ridig+Flex).
