Albert co-owner and Operations Manager at Murrietta Circuits announced recently that his company offers an entire menu of Re-Tinning capabilities.
Demand for re-tinning has increased significantly due to the obsolescence of leaded components which has caused a number of challenges in the assembly of printed circuit boards including tin whiskers, inferior solder joint quality on lead free components and issues with BGA stamina. In order to help their customers solve these issues, Murrietta Circuits has developed a number of special services including:
- Component Re-Soldering
- Termination finish change over
- Lead free to leaded solder
- Gold leads to leaded solder
- Tin whisker mitigation
- Improved solderability
- Microscope and XRF validation
- Component re-taping
- BGA re-balling
When asked about the advantages of using Murrietta Circuits to solve these issues, Albert stated, “There are a couple of very good reasons to use our company to handle these lead-free challenges. First of all we have been doing this for a number of customers over the years. So even though we are announcing our Re-Tinning services at this time, we have been providing them for many years making us one of the most experienced Re-Tinning companies in the country. And second because our system is automated, we use the Kiss LTS 200 which was specifically created to provide an automated method for re-tinning all types of components. Specialized fixturing is required for some devices, but it provides consistency and quality. By using automated equipment we insure repeatability, consistent quality in production quantities as well as various part sizes and package types. Our machine can handle IC’s, Connectors, Caps and Resistors as well as various other package configurations through custom tooling and fixturing.”
