DVD-91C: Intro to Surface Mount Rework
Stresses the importance of avoiding unnecessary rework and shows how a cosmetic fix can create more problems than it solves, such as damage to the component, the board and adjacent solder joints. Provides guidelines for rework decisions and basic acceptance criteria. Also covers: flux usage and residues; pre-cleaning; prebaking; flux cored solder types and thicknesses; solder paste application and volume. Discusses practical theory and application criteria for each of the conductive and convective heating systems used in surface mount rework.
