What Does The Flux Window Do?
Know your fluxer performance
The Flux Distribution Window tells you about your fluxer’s performance and repeatability immediately, each time you run your Optimizer.
- Verify thorough distribution of your flux.
- Identify uneven distribution of your flux.
- Conveniently, several times per shift, each time you run your Optimizer!
Your Flux Distribution Window will not touch your solder wave, and so the flux residue will not be burned off as it passes over your solder waves and exits your wave machine. As a result, you can quickly and easily see if your flux has been applied thoroughly and evenly. It’s that simple.
You will benefit from information on your fluxer performance at the same time you view your Optimizer’s board-wave data and temperature data. All information will be gathered in a single run through your wave machine. There is no need to turn off your wave. There is no need to rely on only a glimpse by viewing a piece of glass while it’s traveling through your wave machine or – worse yet – reaching into your wave machine to retrieve it.
You can now conveniently assess your flux distribution each time you run your Wave Optimizer, by viewing its Flux Distribution Window. You can even implement statistical process control for your fluxer. Simply weigh your Flux Distribution Window before and after each run. Look for a consistent weight of flux residue on the Flux Distribution Window each time you use your Optimizer. Set upper and lower limits directly correlated to your board quality.
Your Flux Distribution Window is secured on a window cut through your Optimizer’s carrier board. To ensure full coverage, it is customized to the width of your carrier board. It is made of durable, high temperature glass-type material. It is included on all new Wave Optimizers and all new Carriers. If your current Wave Optimizer does not have it, you can upgrade your unit by investing in a new Carrier.
