Yes, I come from a land down under...currently participating in an unnecessary war in IRAQ! But what about paste replenishment on both heads? Wastage? Damage to stencil problems if any? Maintenance? etc... thanks for all your info but I think I nee

I've never printed adhesive but I assume that aspect ratio still plays a part with release. Maybe that .006" is just to thick to get good release. Can you step your stencil down from .006" to .004" or .005" for the 0402's?

0402 Adhesive printing is possible with thicker stencils in order to allow mixed component technology. We have successfully printed 0402's with a 0.008" thick SS foil. Total material release is not achievable at this thickness, but not required u
