Indium Corporation’s Meagan Sloan, CSMTPE, Technical Support Engineer, will host an InSIDER Series webinar on stencil printing fundamentals in two sessions on Tuesday, March 2 at Noon Eastern Time (5 p.m. British Time) and Thursday, March 4 at 9 a.m. Eastern Time (2 p.m. British Time).
As the industry has evolved and SMT has become more demanding, it is important to understand the basics of the process. One of the most important first steps in the SMT process is successfully getting the paste on the board, which is commonly done by stencil printing. However, a majority of defects in the SMT process can stem from incorrect stencil printing setup. Going back to the basics and ensuring you have the correct setup can save you from defects down the line. In two sessions of Stencil Printing 101, Sloan will talk about the solder paste printing process and typical design of experiments (DOE) that can be used to obtain data on how the solder paste will perform.
