Benefits of Jet Printing Solder Pastes


Reading time ( words)

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.

Erik Widding, Birger Engineering Inc.: "No stencils and immediate ability to vary paste volumes anywhere on the PCB. Also, very little wasted material, as none is exposed to the environment until after dispense."

Jason Nipper, UTC: "Ability to selectively print without Kapton taping apertures on stencil. No need for stencil, good for test and NPI development."

Stephan Kohler, Turck: "Rapid prototyping."

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.
