Expert Panel Responses

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.
