Robotic hot solder dip for RoHS compliance, MIL, curing poor wettability

The soldering geeks from BEST perform a variety of “other” services for clients. These non-categorized services are not categorized and are typically the result of clients asking for these particular services and then from there the offering springs forth. With the changes in the J-STD-001 in terms of the gold mitigation standards, the need for lead tinning takes on renewed importance. As an offshoot to BEST’s training services offering which may include a tour or custom rework or assembly process development BEST’s troubleshooting of various SMT processes business has sprung forth.

If you are need of a “second set of eyes” on a particular process problem, BEST engineers may be able to help you diagnose and troubleshoot the problem. Projects such as excessive bow and twist, head in pillow intermittent opens and cracked solder joints in the test area are all problems that BEST has solved in such process troubleshooting assignments. Whether we travel to your facility or you send us boards and we can agree on a scope of work by working in a our facility, BEST process engineers can point you in the right direction, suggesting process, material or equipment changes.

Lead tinning answers several market requirements. One of the most consistent is that of lacking of wettability of a given part which may have sat in stores for an extended period of time. In addition lead tinning can be appropriate in cases where the alloy needs to be changed out, the non RoHS parts must be re-tinned with another alloy in order to make the assemblies RoHS compliant or if the assembly has components on it requiring the gold to be “washed” off on the component leads.

 

PCB Inspection

If you are need of someone troubleshooting your process, especially when it comes to your rework or assembly processes then BEST may be your resource. We can either document a process given a problem or we can .come on site to be a “2nd set of eyes” to review the process.

X-ray Services

BEST offers hot solder dip services. We can be your source for making sure that the wettability of long ago stored components is increased, that the gold mitigation standards called out in J-STD-001 are met or to simply change the alloy of the component pins.
