Selective soldering has been widely implemented in recent years. As with all new process technologies, there has been a significant learning curve during its implementation ramp. This session highlights key process optimization results, design for manufacturing guidelines and techniques, and best process practices for transitioning from low- to high-temperature solders.
The globalization of markets results in stronger competition with clearly noticeable cost pressure. For companies producing electronic equipment, it is of existential importance to reduce production costs while maintaining a consistently high level of quality of manufactured products. Manual repair soldering that is expensive, time-consuming and cost intensive is already unacceptable due to the required quality and the reproducibility of the whole manufacturing process.
In more than 80 percent of cases, solder bridges are the main reason for faults. The solder’s pull-off behavior, which is influenced by several factors, is what is mainly responsible for a bridge-free soldering result in the selective soldering process.
With many practical examples, this paper provides a detailed explanation of the individual points that should be found in the selective soldering process with regard to the assembly design and solder nozzle technology. Moreover, the options for faultless and cost-effective electronic production will be shown step by step.
