wave soldering

Applying liquid solder to the underside of printed circuit boards in order to bond the chips and discrete components that are placed on top of the board and whose metal leads (pins) extend through the board. The board is moved across the solder, which adheres to the flux and bonds the pins to the board. Contrast with reflow.
