Take action limits, also known as “dump pot specifications,” are important to any electronics manufacturing company using flow soldering techniques either in selective soldering or wave soldering. According to IPC, the report was based on testing of eight common SAC alloys that were subjected to strenuous tests, including wetting and electron microscope examinations.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
