Fine pitch through hole soldering

What is the finest pitch for plated through hole components that can be succesfully wave soldered without bridging?

If you don't have a specific dimension, can you let me know the finest pitch through hole component you have soldered succcessfully?

Experts Comments

With a Selective Soldering machine you have more control of your parameters and axis which makes it easier to have success soldering fine pitch components. 1.27mm fine pitch soldering occurs on a daily basis, but soldering well below 1mm pitch can also be achieved with a very high FPY.
