Preheating of PCB's

This document explains the main goals for preheating the PCB's before they enter into the solderwave. Preheating is necessary to condition the flux by evaporating the flux solvent. In the case of wave soldering of SMD's it may be necessary to preheat to relative high temperatures to diminish the thermal shock for heat sensitive components.
