Flow Soldering, also known as wave soldering, is a crucial step in the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) manufacturing process. It is an automated soldering technique used to efficiently and reliably solder electronic components onto a PCB. This method is particularly suitable for through-hole components, which have leads that pass through holes in the PCB. Throughout the Wave Soldering process, the circuit board is passed over a bath of molten solder, where a pump produces an upwelling of solder that looks like a standing wave. As the circuit board makes contact with this wave, the components become soldered to the board.
Flow Soldering offers several advantages in PCB manufacturing, including speed, cost-effectiveness, and reliability. It is a well-established and widely used technique for high-volume production, especially for applications where through-hole components are predominant.
