Gold Finger Repair
Rework / Repair Services
Gold fingers are prone to damage as they are on the periphery of the circuit board and they are also prone to solder splash during the wave soldering process. When edge contacts are contaminated with solder, get scratched, torn or damaged, BEST repair technicians can bring them back into specification. These contacts can either be replaced or repaired. Our repair methods will restore your edge contacts to a high level of performance and reliability. BEST's highly skilled technicians can repair the gold fingers thereby eliminating the need to scrap the entire board. We have custom gold finger fabrication capabilities for those higher volume repair jobs in order to minimize the turn-around time and keep repair costs to a minimum.
When the gold fingers get scratched, contaminated with solder or if the plating is worn they can be re-plated by BEST. The contaminated contacts are stripped down to the bare base metal and replaced to meet the thickness specified. BEST's electroplating process is reliable and will restore damaged contacts to "like new" condition with full functional conductivity and durability.
