PCB Cleaner/washer suggestions

Electronics Forum | Thu Oct 07 12:14:14 EDT 2004 | bschreiber

The pre-solder cleaning of misprinted PCBs can be a completely different experience from a post-solder application. While the paper that DaveF references is excellent, you may want to read the paper by Richard S. Clouthier, "SMT Stencil Cleaning: A

We currently redoing our floor layout and need to squash our SMT line into a smaller, rectangular cell. We currently use a manual printer/stenciler, pick and place, reflow oven, and aoi inspection machine. Can anyone give me any links to any differ

Zestron SD301 Vs Isoprophyl Alcohol

Hey all, I am currently looking into switching from using Alcohol in our screen cleaner to Zestron SD301. I am confident that it will clean our stencils better, but the cost of Zestron is 3 times that of alcohol. Has anybody done any studies o

We are not doing this right at the moment but I have done it with great success. Of cource it depends on your pad layout we have a 20 mil gap in between pads, we printed at 10 mil wide with a 5mil stencil. I will try to find the glue we used, I kno

You want approximately 5 particles minimum across the smallest aperture. So in the case of a 0.8mm device, we use .017" pads with a round 0.020" aperture on a 6 thou thick stencil foils. Here, 0.020" diameter equals 0.50mm. This gives us 0.50/5=10

Solder paste height checking

1.67 always on the sample boards measured. This is very fast and pretty good measurement for a paste dispense control. Boards do not stand out-side for long times. Inspect the height for critical components only, in the initial stages. Once your Cpk

Most solder paste has a shelf life of 1 week at room temperature after opened, if resealed at the end of the shift/day. Most shelf lives are 4-6 months at 40F (refridgerated) or 1 month at room temp (unopened/sealed). Recommended stencil life is appr

Ultrasonic washing for boards

Mike Conrad's "matter of full disclosure" is not quite complete. He fails to mention that he only makes spray-in-air board cleaners and only ultrasonic stencil cleaners. He does not make ultrasonic board cleaners. So, he apparently he is "grinding

Hello Frank, Just a quick note regarding the use of your Smart Sonic Stencil Cleaning process for cleaning PCBs; if the boards are populated, some components my require an ultrasonic rinse with DI water as ultrasonics will deliver the wash solution
