Flux Applications

Selective automated flux dispensing is utilized at certain stages in the assembly process where improved reliability and speed are required. Many applications include rework. Precision dot dispensing allows very tightly controlled volumes of flux to be accurately targeted to specific areas, thus preventing excess fluxing, which can result in cleaning issues or flowing and spreading to undesired areas. Camalot® dispensing systems excel in applying a wide array of flux formulations including No Clean (NC), Water Soluble (WS), Rosin Mildly Activated (RMA), and Rosin Activated (RA) for a full range of semiconductor and board assembly processes that include flip chip and advanced packaging. Paste or ‘tacky’ fluxes are also dispensed for BGA and µBGA sphere attachment, and for operations such as soldering flip chip components to various PCB substrates.
