Selective soldering has grown in popularity over the past 25 years to now be a major connective technology in the electronics industry. The machines and techniques have progressed to being a major feature of in-line processes with the ability to flux, pre-heat and solder through-hole technology (THT) components for printed circuit boards (PCBs) within a single machine or series of modular machines. As described by McMaster et al. [1], there are 2 classes of selective soldering machines: hand-load and in-line machines. As in-line systems are used for processing either a greater volume of boards or larger boards, many of the most challenging selective soldering processes are undertaken with this equipment
