IPC-A-610 is telling me that the solder balls are not acceptable if they are not trapped or if they are big enough to cause a bridge, but I want to know how bad really is to have one or two non acceptable solder balls, how probable is to have a bridge in the future with the client I want to know if I'm doing over quality in our process.

With respect, I think you need to look at it from a long term reliability viewpoint. Personally, I would be happy sending equipment to cusotmer with ANY stray solder. It just adds another possibility, (probability), for failure.

Looking at it from a six sigma viewpoint, there is virtually no room for 'deviations' af any kind. Six sigma = 99.9996% yield = 3.4 defects per million opportunities, (say equipments for ease).
