A New Stenciling Method for Reworking SMT Components

A New Stenciling Method for Reworking SMT Components

Stenciling MethodWhen reworking more complex SMT components such as finer pitch SMT components, SMTconnectors and even area array devices, the most common method of printing on the printing selectively on the PCB has some serious shortcomings. The most significant problems incurred with this method includes the lack of co planarity between the stencil and PCB, holding the stencil in position during the printing process, the large space taken up by the metal stencil/fixturing system and the cleaning required. These problems all lead to a decrease in yield.

A recently developed new stenciling process overcomes these deficiencies resulting in better yields, faster rework times all while simplifying the rework process.
