Warming up solder paste at start of days production

Electronics Forum | Thu Jul 22 06:33:28 EDT 2004 | Grant

Hi, I wondered how people warmed up solder paste at the start of the days production. I saw some paste mixers at a show, but only saw ones that mixed small solder paste tubs, not tubes. Can you get mixers that handle tubes. They said these mixers a

I'm currently having issues with a 28 terminal MLP package. I have only recently started in a new company and it seems as though the manufacturers guide lines as to pad geometry do not work (at least for us). So I now have a situation where I have 4

Hi Russ, Thanks for the reply -- It is not a double sided board so I guess I will be doing pretty much the same process as you described. I was wondering about was the tool you mentioned -- Is this just a fixture you got made locally or some specific

We have recently faced lifted lead problem that happened on our 20 mil pitch QFP. We have infact pushed it back to the incoming quality, but still I have a few questions to bring up : 1) what is the typical coplanarity tolerance that ICs' manufactur

Labeling of SMT solder stencils

Well, to be honest, we have not had any problems with this. We tested several old frames we had inhouse, and put them in our washers for 50 cycles, and they did not get any fluid in the frames. We simply attach the labels with sheet metal screws in

Open BGA joint

What is the component ball co-planarity spec? I have encountered many ceramic and ASIC devices that specify 7 mil max. If your stencil is 4, 5, 6 mil you WILL eventually have an open joint. You must deposit solder greater than or equal to your cop

Well Thanks for all the good advise. Lots of different opinions on this one. I took the advise to contact my current supplier of solder paste. They sent in one of their tech people along with a sales guy and we ran without much trouble. Other than a
