Hi I am having trouble getting solder bridges on TQFP-100 (0.5mm pitch) components. The boards are pasted on semi-auto printer using laser-cut 0.12mm stencil and SN63 NC257-2 T4 paste. The components are placed using Samsung CP40LV and tghen reflow

In testing 63/37 SnPb NC paste I have seen HUGE differences in performance. Have you tried a different paste? I prefer AIM (NC257-2), they have performed well in each round of testing. My observations regarding mixing old and new paste: The paste ha
