In our daily works, it is common we need to know what’s the components soldering strength to the PCB boards. Poor SMD soldering strength leads to a high risk of components falling off the board.

Makerfabs use the SMD pulling tester to sample test the soldering strength for the components:

Normally, the pull strength testing as follows:

1. Pulling the components directly with the tester, pulling angle 30~45 degree;
2. Pulling time 10S;
3. The pulling standard as follows:

Makerfabs engineer is testing the diodes& 0402 capacitors for one project:

With these testing, we can get more detailed info on how the components are soldered on the PCB, to keep our PCBA products better quality.
