When a printed circuit board has a medium to high number of conventional or through hole components to fit on a single sided PCB, flow solder can automate the manual process of inserting and hand soldering the parts. Flow or Wave soldering is a bulk soldering process used for soldering through hole components to a printed circuit board. The name is derived from the use of waves of molten solder to attach components to the PCB. The circuit board is passed over a bath of molten solder in which 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. This process is ideally used for single sided PCB's.
