MPM to Present Technical Paper on Stencil Printing 0201 metric Apertures at productronica


Reading time ( words)

A new technical paper that focuses on the application requirements of printing small apertures and the results of a design of experiment testing will be presented at the upcoming productronica trade fair in Germany. The paper will be presented by Edward Nauss, MPM Applications Engineer at ITW EAE.

Component miniaturization with packages requiring 0201 metric resistors and capacitors presents specific challenges to solder printing process. To address these challenges MPM’s engineers examined each aspect of the printing process. This included essential machine requirements including correct squeegee blades, tooling support and required calibrations to meet the demanding specifications. The correct match and design of materials will be addressed focusing on the stencil and substrate design along with solder paste and cleaning solvent requirements.

“We will be presenting the results of a design of experiment and explain the printer and Solder Paste Inspection setup and specific machine parameters used,” said Edward Nauss, MPM applications engineer. “We were very satisfied with our results and are looking forward to sharing our research.

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.
