Jet Printing Solder Paste and Cleaning Challenges
June 27th, 1:30 PM EDT
Recent evidence has shown that it is becoming extremely challenging to consistently deliver the correct amount of solder using the screen printing process. Manufacturers in today’s production environment are overcoming this challenge by incorporating jet printing as an additional add-on step to add extra solder paste volume to solve such challenges. Typically, jet printing pastes use Type 5 and 6 solder powder compared to Type 3 and 4 usually seen in screen printing processes. As cleaning remains critical to ensure long term reliability, jet printed solder pastes have proven to be more difficult to clean as compared to screen printed pastes. This ZESTRON Academy webinar addresses reasons for the increased cleaning challenge with comparative cleaning trial data and customer case study reviews.
