Please check Circuit Assembly March 1998, article "Solder balls and aperture shapes" and August 1999 "Guiding stencil design". They can be contacted at www.circuitassembly.com The main cause of mid chip solder balls is the volume of paste that is p

How does your machine recognize the part? Does it use vision for ball inspection or a just a body scan? What is the aperture size on the stencil? Have you calculated the area ratio? What is the aperture shape? What type of paste are you using? is

To quote a regular here, "Are you sure your washer is set up correctly?" :P He's a WS junkie. This is a really common problem and is discussed here often. Mid chip solder balls (solder beads) are almost always the result of too much paste being dep

I have seen the U-shaped aperture on a customer site, being used with success. However, the problems with the stencil and the �loose� tabs where reportedly a reason to search for different aperture designs. Before this company could test their ideas

Sure, use of U-shape apertures is another way to reduce the amount of paste that you apply. That and similar schemes mentioned in the article are not a function of the flux used. We have used U-shaped apertures for MELF and mini-MELF. They are sug

I like this answer! Part geometry, part mass, land pattern, print accuracy, reflow profile, placment accuracy, and aperture shape all play a role. If you use a homeplate to reduce solder balling, have high profile/low mass parts AND place more to

Hello Everyone, Does anyone have any experience with an SMT right angle LED from Panasonic, part number LNJ123W8PRZ. In our experience the pattern design from the vendor was not very effective (the part swam around on the pads & flipped backwards dur

Where did you find this article about "U-shape" apertures? I believe it is simply talking about rounded corners on the inside of a normal square aperture. ( resembling a filled in U ). It kinda follows the same ideas behind the home-plate design, wit
