I've found myself having to solder a bunch of XGL6060 and XGL4040 inductors lately, which have to be reflowed as there's no way to get a soldering iron to the pads underneath the chips. I don't have a reflow oven, but I do have a hot air rework station.
The problem is that the part tends to get blown around by the airflow unless held in place, and it's quite difficult to hold the part in place while also moving the hot air gun around all sides of it. The mass of the part is too high for the solder's surface tension to pull it into position, too. I usually have to try multiple times to get each inductor soldered, because my hand with the tweezers slips and drops the part.
Obviously the proper way to do this is to use a reflow oven, but are there adhesives or anything that can be used to hold the part in place without needing to hold it manually? Or is this simply not a soldering method that's usable for this kind of thing?
