Hi all, I am creating a c# application, and I'm trying to connect it with Tpsys, but I have some problems in the connection right now I can connect and import/export some packages but not all. The connection is by socket and to export I am using "Put Data" command and to import "Get Data", do you know if there is other command I should use? or why I can not access to all packages? there is other feature I have to set in order to get full access to all packages?

They are pretty reflective on the surface, so I guess IR-type oven is not the best choice...

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 03:40:28 GMT Siplace X Are there any Siplace users out there that have any experience of the latest "smart feeders" for X series (version 3 I think, with built in handle and LED´s instead of LCD display) I am specifically interested to get input on any issues experienced with the functionality and especially any static discharge problems with components jumping out of pockets. With thanks James Wed, 18 Jan 2017 17:32:10 GMT Rubber cones used for masking holes Does anyone knows where I can buy these rubber cones? They work as masking - preventing the solder to adhere to through holes(rings) while wave soldering Wed, 18 Jan 2017 12:41:19 GMT 3d printing Quad feeder rollers Hi! I recently bought 33 of the worlds crappiest Quad feeders for dirt cheap. They all had bad tape peel rollers. So I decided to try and print replacement rollers from TPU. And, it actually works! here is the link to the cad files <a class=roll href="" target="_blank"> </a> Wed, 18 Jan 2017 09:01:21 GMT Soltec-Vitronics throughput Hello experts, We have a XPM3m reflow oven and for certain boards, the oven is the bottleneck. I am curious if someone knows how to increase the throughput by decreasing the distance between the boards in the oven. It has to be in the software somewhere, but I couldn't find it.

I've tryed several other software packages and none of create files that work. A couple appear to get very close, but still crash on import. If anyone has this software and could provide it to me, id be very very appreicative. Fri, 13 Jan 2017 04:48:12 GMT Yamaha YV100's passwords? When the YV100 starts up if you press a key during its startup you can get it to ascreen where it asks for passwords.. How would you get the passwords from this Fri, 13 Jan 2017 02:54:25 GMT PowerWave Seho issues We have a Seho PowerWave that is dual wave and we are having trouble with results only on one production board. These boards are from overseas to side note. I have played with speed, flux, and height with the same results. I am now looking into different nozzles and machines. Any suggestions on problems or new machines would be much appreciated. Thanks. Thu, 12 Jan 2017 13:54:47 GMT ProblePCB Design in KiCad Wed, 11 Jan 2017 22:05:02 GMT Dry solder Hi, We are doing pin in paste reflow process in one our product ( but paste printed on bottom side of the board and top side will be assembled through hole component)in which faced cold solder issue in THT capacitor location after reflow. The solder paste is melted and getting up to primary side of the PCB(at component side)but not soldering with component lead and PCB pad. The above said problem is occurs randomly like as one shift in a day or one day in a week. We tried with different analysis but issue not resolved and the analysis is below as, 1.Component lead tinning before manual assembly into the PCB. 2.Alternat component part used. 3.Stencil aperture opening increased to increase paste volume. We suspect the pin to hole ratio in respective component location and details is, component lead dia - 0.45mm and PCB hole dia - 0.7mm and the variants is 0.25mm. So kindly help to provide the standard value of pin to hole ratio to check the above mentioned value. And also any one kindly provide the solution to arrest this issue. Note: The PCB having solder pad at secondary side only, there is no pad on primary side.

I have a colleague trying to keep a piece of old equipment alive for a little longer. Web searches haven't been very helpful due to the age of the equipment. The latest listing I found was placed in 2013. Does anyone have a machine that could be purchased for use as spare parts? If not, does anyone have at least a software backup of some type? At this point, I am sure punch cards would be more useful than what we have to work with...

We running small quantity board and frequently do conversion. we produce very simple board no BGA only resistor, capacitor, LED, IC and transistor. We are running same model top and bottom in 1 reflow oven. could i use top profile when reflow bottom? Since our program temperature setting for top and bottom same. Kindly please advise... Mon, 09 Jan 2017 19:25:15 GMT SMD Spring Pins Reflow Crooked / Tilted We recently ran a board with Mill Max surface mount spring-pins which placed perfectly straight from tape/reel but came out tilted in various directions after reflow. We're right within the recommended paste thickness of 0.005" and a reflow temperature of 255C. Does anyone have any experience with this type of pin and this issue? Mill Max wasn't able to offer much advice other than paste thickness and reflow temperature.
