A shop-floor guide to the machine soldering of electronics

Sound electrical connections are the operational backbone of everypiece of electronic equipment--and the key to success inelectronics manufacturing. The Handbook of Machine Soldering isdedicated to excellence in the machine soldering of electricalconnections. Self-contained, comprehensive, and down-to-earth, itcuts through jargon, peels away outdated notions, and presents allthe information needed to select, install, and operate machinesoldering equipment.

This fully updated and revised volume covers all of the newtechnologies and processes that have emerged in recent years, mostnotably the use of surface mount technology (SMT). Supplementedwith 200 illustrations, this thoroughly accessible text

Describes reflow and wave soldering in detail, including reflowsoldering of SMT boards and the use of nitrogen blankets

Explains the setup, operation, and maintenance of a variety ofsoldering machines

Discusses theory, selection, and control methods for solder,fluxes, and solder paste

Defines standards of quality and shows how they can be achievedand maintained

Widely accepted in industrial and military circles, The Handbook ofMachine Soldering is an important resource for production managers,engineers, supervisors, operators, and anyone involved day-to-dayin electronic manufacturing. It is a proven text for upper-levelundergraduate college courses and for soldering seminars gearedtoward apprentices and future managers.
