Much of this article is written in Engrish, and this Talk page is primarily vandalism. Needs fixed.[edit]

Much of this page is NOT written in English as many would understand it. Having read all of it I still don't know what it's trying to say! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:06, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

This article is very flawed and most of it originates in this edit from 28 December 2007 (!). Rework applies to all soldering methods, not just surface mount type soldering. Wave soldering may also require re-work and even hand soldered joints may require re-work. - 220.101 talk\Contribs 13:21, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Rework (food)[edit]

I am keen to see started a page on Wikipedia on the word "rework" as a term used in the food manufacturing industry. It means the re-use of left-over batches of product into other runs of (sometimes completely different) product.

It is the apparent reason behind some allergen warnings ("This product may contain trace amounts of ...") - food manufacturers are not just covering themselves legally. There may legitimately be some left over fish in your peanut butter!

I'm not sure how different countries manage rework practices with food labeling laws.

Rework practices cause some products, that are otherwise ok, to lose certification under kosher, halal, vegetarian (and the like) regimes.

While food safety laws govern the quality of rework, it would be interesting to discuss how enforceable such laws are, given 'rework' is an inherent unknown.

If you can get citations, totally do it. Just some people introducing the concept and talking about these issues; it could be pretty interesting. (talk) 07:23, 26 November 2008 (UTC)


What exactly is that graph of? And how does it fit into the article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:50, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

It appear to be temperaure versus time. Surface mount electronic components are heated in an special oven to melt the solder paste in a series of steps (apparently) as depicted by the graph.
I agree with the thread above that this article is written in 'Engrish'. A shame no one has done much to fix it! I'll try, but haveonly a little time to spare right now.- 220.101 talk\Contribs 13:03, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
