stencil thickness for bga

Oct 13, 2003 | Aperture size should vary with the component [pitch]. That size should be the same a the pad size.

Where to start with a new reflow oven

Oct 13, 2003 | HI Andrea- to answer Q: 1) Stencils can be order through various vendors that manufacture stencils. You would need to have CAD data for the Stencil company to make them. You design engineer should have the CAD info. Also, the stencil design company can assist in type of apperatures best for your

Mylar sheets

Blocking stencil apertures (on purpose)

May 1, 2003 | Why not fill the apertures with paste and let the paste dry-out? We have found that a hammer and ch

0402 Adhesive Screen Printing

Apr 3, 2003 | 0402 Adhesive printing is possible with thicker stencils in order to allow mixed component technology. We have successfully printed 0402's with a 0.008" thick SS foil. Total material release is not achievable at this thickness, but not required using what is sometimes referred to as a "Pump


Apr 1, 2003 | I'm a user changing over from WS-609 to WS-709. WS-709 has less voiding problem and longer stencil life than WS-609. Ws-709 has a less foaming during washing process. Thanks, Myu

0402 Adhesive Screen Printing

Apr 1, 2003 | I've never printed adhesive but I assume that aspect ratio still plays a part with release. Maybe that .006" is just to thick to get good release. Can you step your stencil down from .006" to .004" or .005" for the 0402's?

Rheometric Pump Vs Proflow

Mar 30, 2003 | Yes, I come from a land down under...currently participating in an unnecessary war in IRAQ! But what about paste replenishment on both heads? Wastage? Damage to stencil problems if any? Maintenance? etc... thanks for all your info but I think I need more. regards, Dreamy

Rheometric Pump Vs Proflow

Mar 25, 2003 | We are in the process of deciding which stencil printer will we acquire for our line and would like to identify which will provide us more benefit when it comes to enclosed print head. Can anyone give me some comparisons and problems or troubles that they encountered between the two heads? Thanks

Solder paste dispensing

Mar 18, 2003 | I am looking at dispensing solder paste using a Fuji GLV glue dispenser. This is to enable us to produce prototype pcb's without the need to purchase a stencil. Has anybody tried this before? If so what problems should I expect to encounter.


Mar 15, 2003 | Hi, We had tomb-stoning on a product, and it was quite severe. We eliminated it by reducing the amount of solder paste on the small passible component pads. We used a 5 thou stencil, with 20% reduction, and it eliminated the problem. Regards, Grant

Smart Sonic Equipment

Screen printing adhesive

Feb 14, 2003 | We use Thermoset MA-420 on a pair of Elite 6920 printers. Excellent results. It took some experimentation with aperture sizes and stencil thickness but it works great.

Fine pitch paste release problems.

Dec 19, 2002 | Now, this is good solid advice. If following this advice does not help there is something wrong with 1. the paste (reology failure) 2. the stencil (rough walls) 3. the board (bad design or fab) (in order of likelyhood)

Fine pitch paste release problems.

Dec 16, 2002 | square apertures provide better paste release than round in most applications. See IPC 7525 Stencil Design Guidelines

Nov 6, 2002 | You may want to check your stencil aperture design too. The base ball pad design worked fine to solve my tombstone problem.

stencil ordering

Oct 25, 2002 | stencil ordering Russ, that makes sense, thanks. As for the 20x20... I was speaking with a sales rep who was trying to talk me into buying stencils from him. I told him I use "Fuji 4000" and he sent me quotes for 20x20 and 29x29. That seems odd since the Fuji 4000 stencils I use now are quite a bit bigger than that. I must be missing something there. Dave, I will certainly take your advice and contact our rep at IIT and get a good relationship with him. The guy who ran the SMT before I got here didn't say much about ordering stencils other than here is the web site address to order. I didn't want to look

The increased component height after reflow

Oct 24, 2002 | Hi: The component height will increase on the PCB after reflow soldering. But i don't know the accurate data of the increased height. Who can help me to get it? The stencil thickness is 5 mil we used. Thanks Harriss

via in pad

Oct 12, 2002 | Alternatives to consider are: * Opening-up your stencil aperture put-down more paste to compensate for the amount that is being used to fill the via. * Relaying-out the board to plug and plate over the via. * Relaying-out the board to move the via from the pad.

0201 Aperture design

Oct 12, 2002 | I run 0201 on a 5 mils stencil with openting of 15X12 and did not have any issue. The major concern is the placement and CP643 did very good job. Type 3 solder pastes was used. Good luck.

Solder Paste and fine pitch components

Sep 18, 2002 | One more variable I've remembered - pad height with respect to solder mask height. Pads being too low can cause stencil "gasketing" problems that in turn allow more paste to be deposited than needed. Are your fabs HASL or some other media?

Glue & Paste Printing on Same side of the PCB

Aug 6, 2002 | OK, I'll bite. How you can set a stencil down on a printed board and run a squeegee across it (even if it's a proflow head, it's still a squeegee, right?) without disturbing the printed paste?
