Solder Pallets With Titanium Inserts - Yes/No?
Solder Pallets With Titanium Inserts - Yes/No?
Our pallet manufacturer recommends titanium inserts to allow larger apertures near closely spaced surface mount components. Are they worth it? The Assembly Brothers, Jim Hall and Phil Zarrow, share their insights.

Soldering Components with Silver Pads
We use a low temp profile, did not obtain proper wetting and got solder balls. If the reflow temperature is too high, the silver dissolves.

Selective Solder Pot Temperatures
Selective Solder Pot Temperatures
What temperature should the solder pot in our selective soldering machine be? Should the temperature be different from our wave system? Phil Zarrow and Jim Hall, The Assembly Brothers, share their own experiences.
