Dave, We have very short runs (less than one hour). We have stencils all over the place waiting to be cleaned. It is too time consuming to scope each stencil to inspect for cleanliness. Do you know of any automated or scanning devices that can ra

Kerryn, It's the first time I hear someone who needs an automated inspection machine to check the cleanliness of stencils. Why not improve on the cleaning method itself. I use ultrasonic batch cleaner. It takes 3 minutes to clean a stencil, 2 minutes

We are a high-mix/low-volume operation and end up cleaning 40 - 50 stencils per day. Does anybody know of an automated inspection system or "scanner" that can check a stencil for cleanliness?

You would be better served to check your print quality as you run. Any problems caused by dirty stencils ( plugged aps etc ) would show up right away as a defect. Search the forum for more on this subject. I seem to recall the same subject coming up

So, yer lookin' to detect a ~25um glob on the wall of the aperture on yer stencil, eh? Why not wash your stencils before you put them away? That's what we do. Give 'em a quick looksee, then rack 'em, if they're clean. Give 'em anudda looksee befo
