> Knead pressure, is normally at or slightly lower > (maybe 25%) than print pressure... Ahh makes sense. Couple other quick questions if you don't mind: 1) Currently do kneading after 15 mins of no activity, with 3 knead passes, is that n

Alrighty... Problem solved - ended up not being a problem at all. So, what I didn't realize, was that the knead pressure was 5kg, and the first print was always kneaded, so that's why the set pressure showed 5kg. After it was done kneading, the set

Knead pressure, is normally at or slightly lower (maybe 25%) than print pressure...

We leave the next days quantity out overnight. Never had to do more than 4 kneads. On the inline we don't do any and the VMP 100s we only do one. Only seem to require kneading on the old clam shell printers - don't know why! That's with Indium SMQ 92

Remove the paste from the fridge the night before, If you feel the need to knead we just put the paste on the stencil and work it a little bit with a spatula. Russ

Microwave? Try some steel wool next time. Are you cookin food in that microwave? I would love to see that documented into a process. You could look at changing the solder paste you use. Knead it up other than that mate.

At a previous location we used the Semco cartridges. Occasionally the operator would have to scrape down the stencil and knead the paste back in. That would keep the paste on the edges from drying out. It was just standard procedure.

50%) only over the appertures where there was poor support. Most prints took 2 knead strokes to print OK, but this caused fine pitch leaded devices to almost short. stencil had to be be wiped after kneading. 2 similar devices with exactly the same

I know this is not the answer to your question but it may help until you get the right cleaning process in place. I have found that kneading the paste with 3-4 double strokes during the first print has aided in bring our defective ppm down somewhat.

Run a test, but in our experience, yes you can reuse the paste. We ran tests on paste that was left on the stencil at the end of second shift, we put the paste back on the stencil the next day on first shift with no problems. You definitely want to
