The thermal profile is one of the most important processes that must be done very carefully so as to make the production of printed circuit boards both in quality. The thermal profile is carried out during the course of the circuit board printed through the whole process. The thermal profile is the process of measuring time against check temperature during the entire product trip through the process from start to finish. Data collection such as peak temperature, time over liquid, immerse products into waves and more also come in profile thermal process during wave soldering process. This whole process consists of a thermal process profile for solder waves.
The data collected during the thermal process profiles helps in making the wave solder process even more efficient and brings valuable improvements in the quality and consistency of product quality. So we can say that the thermal profile process is an important part of the wave solder process and it contributes in successfully completing the solder wave of the process. The device used to create thermal profiles is known as “Thermal Profiler” welder or some people even refer to them as “Data Logger” to prove from wave soldering. Totally thermal Profiler is basically a temperature recorder used to check temperature records during the entire process and they have the ability to travel through a complete process of solder waves along with the product so as to get readings for the temperature observing the product.
There are various thermal Profiler or can say temperature recorders available in the market but there are some specific companies that produce thermal Profiler especially for wave welder process. This thermal profiler is used in the process of check the profile of a welder wave. This profiler also helps in optimizing the wave soldering process. They provide fairly accurate data for the entire process that makes optimization for more affective processes. The general thermal profiler is equipped with a thermocouple-based sensor that is attached to the PCB surface and then the PCB is made to travel through the thermal profiler which assists in full data monitoring for the wave soldering process. The most common thermal profiler is one that downloads information while it is going through the whole process.
