There is no faster, more reliable, and cost-effective method of soldering through-hole components than the wave process to make PCB pallets. A wave solder machine automatically applies the optimum combination of flux, heat and solder to create perfect joints on each PCB pallet.
Since the molten wave of solder makes contact with the entire surface of the PCB pallet, wave solder requires special tooling to protect vulnerable components and areas of the PCB pallet that are sensitive to heat or solder. For over 20 years, DMI has specialized in wave fixtures for PCB pallets that enable you to take advantage of the quality results and cost-effective benefits of wave solder on assemblies that require thermal or solder protection.

PCB Pallets: Dedicated and Universal Wave Options
Dedicated wave fixtures are simply the best tooling solution available that achieve the highest quality PCB pallet at the lowest cost. Even when faced with oddly-shaped PCB pallets in low-volume assemblies, a universal wave fixture can be a useful tool. The universal fixtures adjust to the size of each PCB pallet while providing excellent flexibility. DMI offers custom sizes for all of its universal pallets, ensuring our customers receive the proper size required to meet their production needs. See Adjustable Pallets.
When wall thicknesses are too tight, or heat transfer is an issue, Titanium inserts may be the solution. DMI offers custom inserts for those hard-to-solder projects.
