Real-time Wave Solder Process Inspection - monitoring dwell time and peak for improved quality

17 . NOV 2021

Lecture Hall A1 productronica Forum

11:30 -12 :00 h | Hall A1 .405

Using real-time production wave process measurements including dwell-time, parallelism and peak temperature in the wave, you can eliminate many wave soldering related defects by identifying trends in these metrics, making real-time adjustments and preventing problems before they impact product quality.

Subjects: Test and measurement, quality assurance | Soldering and joining technology for PCBs

Speaker: Robert Baxter (KIC)

Type: Lecture

Speech: English

Typically, the wave soldering process is measured and recorded by attaching thermocouples to the top side of a PCB assembly, running it through the wave solder machine and analyzing the results to see if they fall within the set parameters. Often, only the preheat section of the process is recorded during the thermal profile. The wave portion of the process is not recorded, or must be measured with a different method to collect important wave related data.
New developments in technology allow us to not only profile the preheat section but also the wave portion of the process simultaneously on a production sample. Furthermore the process is characterized and monitored with embedded sensors. This enables a fully automated solution for calculating a complete temperature profile from preheat through the wave, including measurement of dwell, parallelism and peak over the wave, for every single board during production. What is gained is complete process control and traceability of the wave soldering process down to the individual board, tracking trends and maintaining a tight control, thus reducing defects.
