Hi, Yes, the stencil does touch the PCB. Is there another method? Sorry to sound a bit dumb on that, however I don't have a lot of experience with automated stencil printing, and manual has been working well up to now with this BGA. Regards, Gra

I dont know what kind of screener you use but my 1st impression is that the board and stencil are separating too fast,the paste doesn't have enough surface tension to stay on the board, you're tearing the paste off the board. If you can, slow down th

It depends on your product requirements. We don't like to print off-pad, because: * Tough to control the amount of paste that squirts onto the board, because the aperture is not gasketed to the pad on the board. * Some paste that squirts between the

Something else I just thought of, and MikeK touched on it briefly, is what you'll be cleaning. If you need to be capable of removing both epoxy and solder paste, for instance, you need to look at chemistry and processes that will clean both, and the

I have done this before, We print with a 5-6mil stencil and have had no problems with any underneath solder. If you are still nervous instead of removing from stencil use some 3 mil kapton tape or equivelant and tape off the BGA pads. This way the

Davef, Thank you for your reply.You are right that I need to consider the tickness also of the stencil. Previously, I take for granted this process of measuring the tension and I usually let my technician do that. However, I have to determine the pra

Hi, We only use alcohol for cleaning stencil but it gives us best result even with no clean solder paste. We are using Branson.Furthermore, we have fine pitch components.Try cleaning the tank maybe there are solder accomolation in the tank or try in
