Component Modification Services

Our robotic hot solder dip (RHSD) component tinning services are used to change the metallic finish of component leads or pads, most commonly to change leads or pads from a lead-free solder finish to a leaded solder (Sn63/Pb37) finish for tin whisker elimination. RHSD is also used for gold plating removal or mitigation.

We use fully programmable robotic hot solder dip (RHSD) machines to precisely control dip depth, dwell times and temperatures for processing of components in full compliance with GEIA-0006 standards. This highly automated, tightly controlled process ensures that 100% of the tin finish is removed and replaced with tin-lead (Sn63/Pb37).

Gold removal/mitigation is completed in accordance with J-STD-001 specifications.

Lead-free, RoHS compliant applications are also supported with dedicated lead-free equipment.

We use batch wash systems for post process cleaning, provide tape and reel services, component MSL bake and packaging and pre/post process testing as needed.
