Milwaukee Electronics has signed a manufacturer’s representation agreement with Stein & Associates out of San Diego.
“Sherrie Stein had previously represented San Diego PCB and it made sense to expand representation to include Milwaukee Electronics’ manufacturing operations, particularly with the proximity of the Tecate facility to Southern California. This is one more way our recent merger with San Diego PCB is opening the door to new opportunities,” said Jered Stoehr, VP of Sales and Marketing.

SMT stencil printing technology continually evolves to keep pace with device miniaturization technologies. Printed circuit board assemblers have numerous new technology options to choose from, and need to determine the most effective ones to produce the highest quality and most reliable solder interconnections.

The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.
