Bryan, Dyoungquist is correct. You should not need to mix solder paste. Overmixing solder paste can adversely affect it. Follow these guidelines and you should be fine: 1. Keep unopened containers of paste in the refrigerator. 2. Take one container

Pressure printing systems Conventional stencil printing techniques have fundamental limitations as regards paste handling: The volume of paste available for printing is limited, so frequent replenishment is necessary Paste is difficult to c

Potential impacts of using expired solder paste are [University of Bolton]: * Changed paste rheology. Result: poor print quality * Loss of solvents. Result: reduced flux activity * Changed flux formulation. Result: More difficult to clean flux residu

Unforunately, the only one who can give you that answer is the manufacturer. They are the only ones who know what is in their paste and how it reacts to different situations and conditions.

I have actually printed this same condition with type 3 paste Alpha WS709. I posted this for discussion and cannot remember what I called it. We did need to clean the stencil after every three prints. I did not check volume on these locations but

Yupe, if condition keep worst, most probably will re-allocate the PCB manufacturer.

Those others parts also happend printed not accurate, but there is no solder problem. Only the QFP area looks bad condition.

Hi,davef, thanks for your concern. The condition was the pasted printed off with around 0.8~0.9mm from the land pattern. This will easy observe at QFP area. At fiducial, the stencil seens aligned accurately. Once solder bridge happend, its easy to
