Solder climbs on the lead and touches the body of the component

May 12, 2014 | It sounds like a bit too much solder on the PWB, caused by too large a pad for the lead it will contain. In that case solder reduction is the way to move forward. What are the options there? 1. New stencil or stencils - (not desirable) 2. Increase blade pressure at print to reduce solder print stencil, and hand solder that part as a separate process. Stencil change is probably best, but I completely understand not wanting to change them (all) out. Best of luck, let us know how you solve this! 'hege

Stencil aperture positional accuracy

Jun 14, 2012 | Stencil aperture positional accuracy I am running a product with board size ~18"X16". I faced stencil aperture positional accuracy issue which slightly shifted at both end of stencil at positive and negative in X direction thus causing solder paste to pad mis-registration. Due to this solder paste to pad mis-registration, it created several SMT defect as such misplaced, tombstoning and missing SMT component. The question that I would like to consult are: (1)Is this condition normal for board size greater than 15"? As I have observed several stencil that we have on hand at almost similar dimension facing the same issue. (2) What

Reworking BGA's

Sep 21, 2011 | I would like some input on reworking BGA's and the best method. I have reworked BGA's since 1998 using both micro stencils and just flux dipping the parts. I have reworked SN/PB and lead-free (AIM NC258) BGA's for the last 8 yrs. with just flux. I have not purchased one of those micro stencils in years. I started working at a new place about 3 months ago and here they are reworking BGA's with micro stencils. Is there any positives of using a mini stencil over just flux dipping? I'm told it is necessary and it is the way they have been trained to do it. I personally feel it is a pain in the arse

Nano ProTek Coating

Jul 20, 2011 | I have tried it, and it does what it claims. Don't know about durability yet, tested it on a short run. Cost: $300 for a 10pak (10 stencils) Tested a different stencil with Rain-X applied to it, so far same result, the paste does not clog the fine apertures where we used to have problems. We wipe the stencil underside every 10 PCBs now, compared to every 2 before. Been running >200 PCB over 3 shifts now on Rain-X. No signs of contamination from the stuff. Yes, Rain-X, the stuff you buy at auto shop to treat the windshield so that the rain just rolls off the glass. Cost: ~$6 for 200ml, enough for ~100 stencils... I'm not proposing that other try it, if you do, I'm not responsible for any consequences you may encounter.

patchwork stencil

Jun 23, 2011 | patchwork stencil Leave it to the Eurolanders to come-up with a goofy, confusing name for something simple. Stepped stencils are chemical etched or laser cut. IPC-7525 provides guidelines on designing stepped stencils. Look here Further, we've discussed stepped stencils here on SMT previously. Search the fine SMTnet Archives. Here's an example

Solder Paste Printing to 0.005

Jan 4, 2011 | We've been doing this for over 10 years using flux. We print a tacky flux first using an 0.002 or 0.003" thick stencil, then print paste using a thicker stencil with the underside half etched to keep it away from the flux. In our case, we can't just print paste for everything using a smaller stencil because we're in the high reliability market. Another option would be to dip flux the component. We do have one application using solder paste with a type 5 powder and a 0.002" thick stencil. In that case, we have to use paste instead of flux because the device uses a stud rather than a solder
