Solder balls and solder beading have been a process issue for many years and they may not cause product failure or quality problems but they are not desirable. Solder balls are caused by a variety of factors in different processes and should be resolved to eliminate a poorly defined process or a process and materials which are out of control

With over 40 years in industry and 30 solving process problems for industry Bob Willis explains the causes and curses for solder balls. Bob’s webinar features many unique process video clips on testing and failures and make his sessions come alive providing a much better understanding of the root cause of failure and corrective action
