We support our customers conversion efforts to a “lead free” assembly process.
BESTProto has the capability to be your “lead free” prototype assembler having the processes, necessary equipment and trained and experienced personnel in place. We have been working with the engineering development community for several years on the refinement of lead free processes and assembly techniques. BESTProto has the engineering, processes and capabilities to make your transition go smoothly.
Successful assembly methods have been developed by BESTProto for “lead-free” solders for all types of components. BESTProto has developed manufacturing techniques for the most common lead-free solders including Sn/Ag/Cu and Sn/Ag alloys. The soldering manufacturing parameters are adjusted to accommodate the higher melting temperature and slower wetting characteristics of the “lead-free” solders. We also have developed practices for inspecting “lead free” PCB assemblies.
After confirming that the parts and materials to be used in the lead-free assembly are available, suitable for the process, BESTProto focuses its attention on paste handling, printing, reflow, wave soldering, inspection, rework & repair and cleaning to insure that the quality of “lead free” assembly is maintained.
