RTW NEPCON China: Christian Koenen Stencil Technologies Ensure First Pass Yields


Reading time ( words)

Almost 70% of PCB assembly defects come from the solder paste printing process. The stencil is a key factor in this process because its tolerances and apertures affect the paste transfer efficiency, which in turn is among the main cause of failures down the line. In this interview, Michael Zahn, development manager for Christian Koenen GmbH, explains how stencil technologies can improve this process and ensure first pass yields.

Benefits of Jet Printing Solder Pastes

01/30/2019 | I-Connect007 Research Team
In a recent I-Connect007 survey on jet printing solder pastes, we asked the following question: "What are the major benefits with jet printing solder pastes?" Here are just a few of the replies, slightly edited for clarity.

More Than Inspection: It’s Process Improvement

01/09/2019 | Barry Matties, I-Connect007
Barry Matties speaks with Brian D’Amico, president of MIRTEC, about the current state of machine-to-machine communication in the industry, and how the inspection company is interfacing with the different manufacturing languages currently available to gather predictive data and feedback from every inspection step to eliminate future defects.

SMT Electrolytic Capacitor Solder Joint Criteria and Integrity Investigation

12/21/2018 | David Hillman, Rockwell Collins
The body configuration of SMT electrolytic capacitors results in the solder joints being only partially visible for optical inspection purposes. Therefore, the use of adequate reflow soldering processes is critical for producing solder joints that are acceptable for their end-product use environment.
