Stencil Printing Techniques for Challenging Heterogeneous Assembly Applications

04/16/2018 | Mark Whitmore and Jeff Schake, ASM Assembly Systems
A new generation of near microscopic size SMT chip capacitors has appeared in the market, known as either 0201 or 008004. This article investigates and characterizes the stencil printing process for compatibility with M0201 capacitor assembly. Effects of circuit board quality, stencil thickness, and stencil nano-coating are evaluated against solder paste volume transfer efficiency and raw-volume print distribution.

Why AOI is a Must-have for PCB Assembly

04/05/2018 | Russell Poppe, JJS Manufacturing
AOI has an invaluable role to play in speeding up the process of PCB production, in ensuring extreme precision to catch even the smallest of defects, and in minimizing the potential for time-consuming and costly reworking.
