I wanted to know what other folks are doing for wave CpK studies. I thought that conveyor speed, preheat temperature, solder pot temp (never did see a large pt (>1500 lbs) vary by a couple of degrees) were standard. I thought that flux penetration into PTH barrel and solder pot immersion depth and solder pot parallelism would be also critical factors. We are using the ECD WaveRider to measure the implied solder depth and parallelism but wanted to know what other people are doing.
Also looking for Wave solder DOE citations. Haven't had any luck with googling and finding anything.
