Stencil Printing Process and Solder Paste Inspection – An In-Depth Look - SMTA Webtorial


Online Events


Wed, April 18 - Thu, April 19, 2018


The stencil printing process is the most critical process in surface mount electronics assembly. It tremendously influences the quality of the final PCB assembly. This course will provide a thorough understanding of the print process for lead based and lead free solder paste print applications.

Topics include an in-depth look at stencils, solder paste, squeegee, process parameters, process characteristics, inspection techniques, defect identification and corrective actions. Participants in this course are sure to acquire a sound understanding of the solder paste print process and its influence on yield. A brief discussion on the use of this process for adhesive print applications is also included.

Who Should Attend:

  • Process, Design, Test and Quality Engineers
  • Process and Quality Technicians
  • Operators
  • Managers

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the stencil printing process and the process parameters, thoroughly.
