Wave Soldering for TO39 component| 8 October, 2004
I need to keep the gap between the T039 component's flat base and the PCB at <0.1mm after wave soldering. But I've been told that it is tough because the T039 will "float" a little when the board goes through the solder bath. The T039 is a small cylindrical package with 6 leads, and is quite light. Any suggestions? Could I use the glue to stick it in place like the other SMD chip capacitors and resistors? How small will the gap be then if I use the glue method?
