Reflow or Wave Soldering Ventilation

Soldering Ventilation Either reflow soldering or wave soldering for batch production we need to consider of the soldering ventilation indeed. Questions: "(a) The fume from the reflow or wave soldering machine is leaking to the surrounding although it is enclosed and attached to the local exhaust ventilation system with a capacity of 5000 CFM. (b) Current local exhaust ventilation system or the por...

Stepper driver for 3D Printer?

Stepper Driver I've heard there is accident that user do Not apply a stepper driver to make the stepper motor work, but connect the stepper motor to power supply directly, the result is the stepper burn stupidly. It's Not a joke. Let's check out the stepper driver series that companies has bring us. A4982, A4988, DRV8825 (Texas Instruments) , TMC2100, TMC2130, TMC2208, TB6560, TB6600 and other ste...

Stepper or servo cylinder

What is cylinder? Let's check out what's the definition of Cylinder Wikipedia has given. "A cylinder is the central working part of a reciprocating engine or pump, the space in which a piston travels. Multiple cylinders are commonly arranged side by side in a bank, or engine block, which is typically cast from aluminum or cast iron before receiving precision machine work. Cylinders may be sleeved ...

Bipolar or unipolar stepper motor

Two phase stepper motor There are two basic winding arrangements for the electromagnetic coils in a two phase stepper motor, one being bipolar and the other unipolar. A unipolar stepper motor has one winding with center tap per phase. Each section of windings is switched on for each direction of magnetic field. Since in this arrangement a magnetic pole can be reversed without switching the directi...

Linear rail comparison of HIWIN vs RobotDigg 440C SUS vs GCr15 hardened steel

Hi Guys, today we want to show you the difference between linear rails from different sources. Here you can see there are three same type linear rails which are HIWIN origin, RobotDigg 440C stainless steel and GCr15 or hardened steel China mainland copy. All the rails and carriages was put in the air indoor condition in Shanghai, yearly average humidity is over 50% without any maintenance for over...

How to Maintain a Reflow Oven?

Reflow Oven Maintenance Proper reflow oven maintenance can extend its life cycle, keep the machine in good condition, and improve production efficiency and product quality. One of the most important tasks for properly maintaining a reflow oven is remove the built-up flux residue inside the oven's chamber. Although there is a flux collection system in modern reflow machines, there still is a big pr...
