Best Presents Webinar on Metal vs Plastic Printing of Solder Paste-A Comparison


Reading time ( words)

BEST Inc. announces the first in 2016 series of webinars entitled “Metal vs plastic film adhesive-backed stencils for rework-a performance comparison”.  This will be held on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 from 12:00pm to 12:40pm CST (1PM EST/10AM PST).

The consistent printing of solder paste in a rework project is key to a high yield. This is especially true when the pitches are small (0.50mm or less) or the density of leads and neighboring devices are high. In this webinar, the types of methods for the printing of solder paste in rework will be reviewed. The results of a recent study comparing the stainless steel metal stencils to their flexible film counterparts will be revealed.

At the end of the prepared webinar, there will be an open Q/A session. Participants will get a copy of the PowerPoint slides and samples of flexible film stencils of their own design. Those not attending will not be sent the materials.

Alex Conley from BEST Inc. reported, “This is the first in a series of webinars for 2016 in which we want to layout some teaching materials that we typically do not talk about. Bob Wettermann, one of our instructors, will be giving this first talk".

Registration for this free event, with a limited number of web connections available, can be found here

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
