Lead-Free & Tin/lead Selective Soldering, Design, Quality Control & Practical Defect Solutions

Bob WillisInstructed by: Bob Willis, SMTA Europe

For many organisations, through-hole components will remain a reality for many years. More and more surface mount components are used in design and through-hole is in decline; however, the reality is connectors, transformers, switches, LCD displays and electrolytic capacitors are still necessary in many products. So what is the most reliable and cost effective solution for through-hole soldering in a lead-free environment?

Selective soldering has become more popular in the last few years for small and large companies alike. Selective wave and point soldering are both options but what are the realities with lead-free and high temperature solder alloys?

This workshop will look at systems, materials and process but also design for manufacture along with the most common defects and cures. Delegates can bring thier boards or example defects for discussion.

Topics Covered:

  • Why use selective soldering
  • PCB design rules for selective soldering
  • Flux requirements for selective soldering
  • Compatibility of solder masks and lead-free solder
  • Setting up lead-free profiles, you must profile a selective process!!!
  • Solder alloy choices
  • Copper dissolution with selective
  • Flux contamination and corrosion issues
  • Automated through hole inspection
  • Soldering defects on selective – Causes and Cures
