Abstract: This paper details the trials experienced and conclusions reached during a temperature profile study of a new batch convection reflow oven by an individual relatively new to the experience. The difficulties encountered are delineated in the hope of helping others avoid some of the same mistakes. Some of the conclusions reached were: recorded maximum temperatures are influenced by initial sample temperature, specific sample/oven contacts are important, make sure plastic-coated thermocouple wires do not touch, temperatures that can be reached are strongly influenced by sample surface area and cylindrical samples are poor choices for a variety of reasons.
