For a microscope, you want one with the greatest working distance and depth of field you can get. You don't want a lot of magnification, so something like 0.7 - 20 X is good. If you are buying new, have salesmen bring them by and actually try them

Hello Friends: I'm new in SMT process, I have a problem with little balls of solder beside of the component, I'm tried reducing the apertures in the stencil and making home base, some times the balls desappear, but some time not, and some times

Hi! William, please check the new IPC-A-610 Rev C, para 12.4.10 for the soldeirng anomalies. Most of them may consider as process indicator and not the defect. The most common method to elimate the solder ball is to reduce the solder volume by red

Hi Dback, Yes, i'm open "dog bone" aperture for my chip component. this is to prevent solder ball issue. For fine pitch i'm opening square with full length and half width to prevent bridging. Btw, if "dog bone" is not for chip component, what is your

Yeah, it would be kind of expensive to replace all of your stencils but it's the only real answer. Be sure that all your new and replacement stencils have a home base or home plate shape for the passives. This reduces the paste volume near the cent

Hi Dave Sounds like what we call a "squeeze ball". Usually caused by excess paste squeezed over the mask between the pads of the component when placed. This sometimes escapes the pull of surface tension back to the fillet and escapes to the side, us

Aperture reduction @ 5 mils thickness is your best bet. It may take several attempts to get just the right paste volume. What aperture reduction was specified to the stencil house for these specific LEDS? or was the stencil blindly produced using a

Shy, You mentioned that you are using "dog bone" apertures for your chip components? It doesn't make sense to me. I thought that the "dog bone" was used for fine pitch devices, to keep the solder away from the center and avoid bridging. It doesn't
