reflow exit problem

2017/2/2 22:26:58

Could I get some help please?
I have a Heller 1700EXL, 7 zone oven and I'm trying to figure out a better way of off-loading my completed boards. What I have now is simply a small table at the exit of the oven with about an 8" drop from the top of the board rail. I have mounted a 1 foot long metal ramp which lets the boards slide down to the table when exiting the oven. The problem I'm having is that some of my larger boards, or ones with very fine traces, are being damaged if I don't catch them coming out of the oven and they hit each other. What is typically used "in the industy" to deal with boards exiting a reflow oven? I've heard that many companies use board stackers/conveyors or simply have someone sitting at the end of the oven catching boards, but I can't seem to find anything online to that end.
