Selective Soldering Pallets

Selective Soldering pallets are used when single sided PCB’s require to be masked from the wave. Including non plated through holes for fixings, any plated through holes that will need to used post wave or Any area of the PCB that solder would adhere to if exposed to the wave e.g. groundplanes. Selective wave solder fixtures should be considered whenever you are having to use kapton tape to mask features. Savings can be made in both materials and manpower.

We pay particular design attention to select the correct masking thickness as two effects dominate the behaviour of the masking; Thermal bowing due to the temperature difference across the web thickness and buckling caused by the bulk rise in temperature of the masking over the parent carrier.  

Key Product Features and Benefits:

  • Eliminate costly masking with kapton tape.
  • Create savings in man power.
  • Multiple aperture designs.
  • Manufactured with thermally stable composite material.
  • Bespoke design supports odd shaped boards.

"Elite Electronic Systems encountered a production issue on one of their main product lines. To meet stringent deadlines electronic component supporting jigs were required urgently... A video conference call was setup next day which identified the required detail. Key data parameters were transferred, with suggested solutions proposed to Elite the following day. Another supporting video call established and confirmed final jig parameters. Jig samples were completed and despatched arriving in Elite next day. Elite Electronic Systems Ltd were impressed by the focused response from Globaldatum. Suggestions were initially proposed with a final solution achieved within a very short time. It reflected the knowledge and expertise held within Globaldatum in this field."
