Bridges? Kill 'em all!

Thanks for taking a few seconds to read this second issue of FixtureFlash.
The response from the first issue has been very positive overall, and we
hope you continue to get some valuable ideas for your fixture applications.
This issue deals with one way to combat component lead bridging during the
wave solder process. There are other ways, but we'll talk about them later.
Today's method involves solder thieves, or Bridge Killers. A bridge killer
is a piece of copper that is attached to the trailing edge of the wave
solder fixture aperture. The copper attracts any excess solder, reducing the
chance of bridging the component leads. Next time you run into a bridging
problem of your own, you may want to give this method a try. We hope this
little hint helps you in your process. Until next time, happy assembly!
