We have had issues with using the ones from Best. The holes are not always cut correctly and the edges (inside the holes) are not well defined because of the kapton material they use maybe. Plus you leave the mini stencil on the PCB under the BGA whi

Hi aj, Pete is right, there are several variables that can affect your quality when it comes to stencil design. A good idea is to have a stencil made with various designs incorporated into it. A lot of engineers like the reverse homeplate design.

We have not processed very much 0402 size components in the past. We are finding that alot of our customers are upgrading their circuits and going with 0402 size parts. We recently processed one such circuit and odered a paste stencil 6 mil in thickn

Maybe what you could do is have the stencil contain a tightly spaced mesh or grid of openings over the ground plane areas that you need to be solder covered. Also, to help the solder flow out better, you might want to decrease the percentage of metal

We have been doing BGA's for years now, and I would suggest updating your profile and place a thermal couple on the BGA, keep in mind the bigger the part the more heat it will need, We stencil print all of BGA's from simple bga's to complex ones, you

Do you clean the stencil manually or using the automated under-stencil cleaner on your Printer (recommended)? 1. Ensure that stencil wipes are lint-free and soaked sufficiently with solvent before use. 2. If your printer supports automated cleaning
