7.4.3 Soldering Surface Mount J Lead Components, Hot Gas Method More Guides
Outline
This procedure covers the general guidelines for soldering surface mount J lead components. There is basically only one style of J lead component. Whether leads are on two sides or four sides, or whether the component is large or small, the soldering principles are the same.

Minimum Skill Level - Intermediate
Recommended for technicians with skills in basic soldering and component rework, but may be inexperienced in general repair/rework procedures.

Conformance Level - High
This procedure most closely duplicates the physical characteristics of the original, and most probably complies with all the functional, environmental and serviceability factors.

Procedure
  1. Add a small bead of solder paste along the row of pads. (See Figure 1)

  2. Place the component in position.

  3. Adjust the pressure and temperature output of the hot air tool.

  4. Direct the hot air over the component with the hot air tool tip approximately 2.50 cm (1.00") from the solder joint. This initial heating will pre-dry the solder paste.

    Note
    Solder paste has a dull flat appearance when dried.

  5. When the solder paste has dried, move the hot air tool tip to approximately 0.50 cm (0.20") above the component. Move the tool back and forth to heat all the solder joints until complete solder melt is observed. (See Figure 2)

  6. Remove the tool. Wait a moment for the solder to solidify.

  7. Clean, if required and inspect.

Customer Comments
"We had never considered sending our rework projects until recently. The cost savings since we started using Circuit Technology Center has been significant. I hope we never have such a massive rework project again, but if we, do you'll be the first to get a call"
