most machines have fixed angle of 6 deg. some are adjustable from 5 - 7 deg., but 6 is most popular.

it can adjusted per the machine and your boards, Not a fix for every board, also if you are talking about the LF wave soldering process, it should be moved to largr angle compared to the tranditional sn/pb soldering

The standard machine is set from the factory at 7-9 degrees, 7 is the most standard, why are you considering the change? before doing any thing to the machine, first identify why? what type of defects are you seeing? I have found, depending on the type of machine and vintage, it is some times a good trick to lower to 5-6 degrees depending once again on the board design, configuration and population.

Can you advise why the angle would need to be larger for LF process?

Thanks
