We have a My500 at out plant. We are high volume and low to medium volume. It is a great machine and is a great solution to some problems that a conventional screen printer cant get around. For example, we have some producets that are not flat on

I haven't been in a bad enough situation to try it yet, but I had a conversation with Alpha Metals when we started doing 0.4 mm pitch and they mentioned that if we got into a situation like yours we could send them a board and they'd modify the artwo

We work with a lot of larger boards over 24", haven't run into this issue yet. I agree with scott could be your board supplier if they are lower quality, from something as simple as unit conversions in CAD to dealing with different temperatures. A

Our lasers are accurate to +/- approx. 5 microns over 20 "X-Y. I have seen boards 18 x 24 stretch 7mils. I would agree with others, the only way is to send a board to you stencil vendor so they can edit the file to match the board. This is very commo

This issue can be common on such large size boards. The newer laser we use today to cut stencils are generally accurate to +/- 5microns X and Y. Probaly way more accurate than your board which will have a +/- into thousands of an inch. Try send a boa

We used to have a manual printer machine, we could never align the stencil over the PCB well, now with the new stencil we have less defects but still appearing on the Top list. I tried to use more fids as you recommend and one issue I faced was that

m_imtiaz, Over the last 15 years or so I've found that using the stencil foil thickness +2mils/-0mils has worked very well. For example, if you have a 5mil stencil thickness your upper control limit would be 7mils and your lower control limit would
