Preheating plate + tinfoil = almost reflow

Posted on Tuesday, November 13th, 2012 in how-to, techniques by the machinegeek


Andrew Tergis presents an interesting method of reflowing SMD components using a preheating plate and tinfoil (to catch infrared energy). He also uses a Fluke temperature probe attached to the PCB to more accurately monitor temperature. This gives newcomers to reflow an idea of the pitfalls involved.
