Having grown up with IR and Vapour Phase Soldering VPS during the introduction of surface mount technology its fail to say that some processes never die they just get better. Convection reflow took over from IR technology and changed the way industry looked at vapour phase but now its back. For some companies VPS never went away a simple one profile process, in Japan high end application used VPS during the introduction of lead-free technology

Both convection and vapour phase can produce reliable lead-free assemblies, there are advantages and disadvantage to any technology but they both work well and can be very cost effective that is what our surveys have said. We also bring ten years of experience with lead-free using both techniques to the conference

In this webinar the instructor will look at all aspects of the different processes, soldering performance and yield from different joint terminations, solder finishes and joint structures. Each delegate will also receive a FREE set of Bob Willis Inspection Wall Charts covering reflow soldering of lead-free terminations and common defects found in manufacture

Topics Included:

Vapour phase and convection reflow overview
Process parameters
Nitrogen/inert environment myths
Advantages & disadvantages of the process options
Design and layout considerations for VP
PCB solder finishes for VP & convection
Vapour phase materials and cost
Batch or inline operation
User experiences with VP materials and equipment
Profiling boards assemblies in both processes
Solder paste requirements
Comparing single and double sided reflow yields
Soldering flexible assemblies
Inspection results for reflow soldering

Presented by Bob Willis
