Autolube in reflow ovens....does it work? | 14 August, 2000

G'day,

I am interested in hearing about the automatic lubrication of the chains in a reflow oven. The systems I have seem to work to a certain degree. They either lubricate too much, so we end up getting oil on the edges of the PCB, or not enough, which results in the chain jamming up. I would also like to hear how often people are taking the chains out of the oven and cleaning them out. (with a 24 hour production, 6 days a week)

Thank you.
