Interlatin Officially Launches the First Step Stencil in Mexico

Guadalajara, Mexico: International technology company Interlatin will officially launch the first step stencil in Mexico – the VIPER Step Stencil, on January 12th 2017 during an open house event in its headquarters, in Guadalajara, Mexico.
 
The improvement in the delivery time is the greatest benefit for the electronic manufacturing industry in Mexico. Normally, a step stencil is delivered to the customers in 3 to 4 weeks but now with VIPER, the customers will have to wait only 2 days for its delivery countrywide. It is estimated that the demand for step stencils in Mexico is from 1000 to 1500 stencils a year which represents a market with an approximate value of 1.5 million USD.
 
It is important to mention that the VIPER Step Stencil is environment friendly thanks to its Laser Weld production process which does not use any chemicals unlike the most step stencils manufacturers outside Mexico do.
 
For its customers’ best convenience, Interlatin will manufacture 2 types of VIPER Step Stencil: the VIPER and the VIPER-C. The VIPER-C is a normal VIPER step stencil on which the Cobra technology (IDtech – Intelligent Deposition Technology) is integrated. Cobra is NOT a nano stencil and improves the manufactures productivity thanks to the permanent treatment of its surface.
 
Once again, Interlatin proves to be the pioneer in Mexico by being the first company in Mexico to offer step stencils which represents an investment from Interlatin of 1 million USD.
 
VIPER Step Stencil offers direct support to highly specialized manufacturing which is in permanent growth in Mexico and the world.





Beam On Technology Releases New Web Application for Calculating Stencil Printability

Beam On Logo.png [Santa Clara, CA – December 22, 2016] – BEAM ON TECHNOLOGY just unveiled a new web application that provides quick and easy calculations for predicting paste release and solder volume. The new web application is featured on Beam On Technology’s website.

The Online Area Ratio Calculator is the only web app made specifically for solder paste stencil printing and now features more shapes than the mobile app. Simply input the dimensions of a specific aperture after the shape is selected and then select the foil thickness. Instantly, an algorithm displays the area ratio, with easy to understand color identifiers that infer solder paste transfer efficiency.

Beam On Technology’s Area Ratio Calculator also provides supplemental data such as aspect ratio, solder paste volume in cubic mils, as well as suggested solder paste powder type. This web application features more shape selections, with even more aperture shapes to come, making it the more powerful version of the popular mobile app.

The Online Area Ratio Calculator is now available through Beam On Technology’s website and works on all major web browsers.

The mobile version of the Area Ratio Calculator app by Beam On Technology is still free to download and available through the Apple Store or Google Play.

### Beam On Technology Corporation was established in October 1992, founded by manufacturing engineers with extensive knowledge and expertise in the assembly process. Our founding mission was to provide integrated service products to the SMT assembly industry engineered for ease of use that both increase yields and reduce defects. This continues to be our goal.
