KYZEN Research: Higher Production Yields with Minor Adjustment


Reading time ( words)

KYZEN announced that it will reveal the latest research findings from controlled laboratory tests conducted in the interest of improving stencil printing reliability at SMT Hybrid Packaging 2018. The research indicates consistently lower production yields are delivered when some of the industry’s most common cleaning agents are utilized in under-stencil wipe applications. Demonstrated improvements for a multitude of standard processes, solder pastes and laboratory conditions are being made available to help industry experts. Key findings and related video proofs also will be shared in Hall 4A, Stand 536, June 5-7, 2018 at the Messe in Nuremberg, Germany. The introduction video can be viewed here.

The evidence from this lengthy and objective study includes process videos and strongly supports the need for a wet wipe with an engineered solvent that matches to the flux composition. It concludes that reliable and acceptable assemblies start with a clean print. In addition, clean prints are more achievable on a reliable and repeatable basis with engineered solutions, such as CYBERSOLV C8882 than with standard IPA. In addition to sharing the results of the stencil reliability research findings, visitors to the KYZEN stand can acquire custom technical support to help reduce misprints and increase production yields at no cost.

KYZEN will feature CYBERSOLV C8882 at the SMT Hybrid Packaging show. C8882 is a fast-acting, stencil cleaning solvent designed for the under-stencil on printer wipe cleaning process. The solvent dries quickly, eliminating the streaking and smearing experienced with traditional cleaning solvents.

With more than 25 years’ experience and more than 50 industry awards, KYZEN connects leading science with care to create the most effective cleaning solutions for each customer’s unique manufacturing process or problem.

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.
