What is Selective Soldering?

Selective Soldering is a process of selectively soldering through-hole components to a printed circuit board using a selective soldering machine. Unlike a wave solder machine, a selective solder machine has a miniature wave that can be programmed to solder one through-hole component at the time.

While wave soldering is the preferred method for soldering a large number of boards with through-components. Selective soldering is the preferred method for soldering a small number of boards with mixed technology (SMT and through-hole components). Compared to manual soldering, selective soldering is faster, more repeatable and leads to better results.

Depending on the job, sometimes it is necessary to use a selective solder fixture (also known as a selective wave solder pallet) to provide support and improve the overall process.

  • Process multiple individual boards at the same time (e.g. small boards that should have been panelized).
  • Reduce board warping (e.g. thin or flimsy boards)
  • Eliminate flooding problems
  • Improve soldering quality
  • Ensure repeatable process results
  • Reduce setup time
