Free Technical Program & Schedule

9:00am – 10:00am
Meeting Future Stencil Printing Challenges with Ultrafine Powder Solder Pastes
Ed Briggs - Technical Support Engineer, Indium Corporation
Ed Briggs
The explosive growth of personal electronic devices, such as mobile phones, tablets, and personal music devices, have driven the need for smaller and smaller active and passive electrical components. Not long ago, 0201 passives were seen as the ultimate in miniaturization, but now we have 01005 passives with rumors of even smaller sizes not far behind. For active components, array packages with 0.4mm pitch are virtually a requirement for enabling the many features in modern portable electronic devices. To meet the challenge of stencil printing the smaller stencil apertures, there is an increased interest in utilizing finer particle-sized solder pastes to improve transfer efficiency. The smaller particle size results in a large surface area-to-volume ratio that challenges the solder paste’s flux to effectively perform its fluxing action. The resulting surface oxidation can lead to voiding, graping, head-in-pillow, and other defects.

11:00am – 12:00pm
Selecting Stencil Technologies to Optimize Print Performance and Updates on the Latest Stencil Printing Research
Chrys Shea - President, Shea Engineering
Chrys Shea
Today’s SMT process engineers have many choices in stencil design, manufacturing and surface treatments. Available technology options include:

  • Stencil Design: tradeoffs with foil thickness and aperture sizes, steps, overprints and preforms.
  • Materials: nickel, stainless steel, stress-relieved and fine grain SS, nickel-plated SS.
  • Manufacturing processes: electroforming, laser-cutting, electropolishing.
  • Nanocoatings: different materials, application methods and thicknesses.

    Each PCB layout is unique, and some may dictate different combinations of technologies to optimize print performance. This presentation discusses stencil design options and tools, and reviews the results of independent performance tests to help process engineers determine the best stencil strategy for their assembly operations.
