Solder Paste Stencils ? What You Need To Know
Creating a circuit board requires multiple phases and steps, the most important one of them being the application of solder paste to the board surface. Accurate placement of the correct amount of paste to the right parts of the pad will ensure that there are no defects in the resultant circuit assembly. And considering the commercial mass production paramete...

Uses of Stencils in Electronics
The term stencil might remind you of your childhood days of crafting beautiful drawings with colorful cutouts of plastic that would serve as a guide to create perfect shapes. With the advent of electronics engineering, the funny world of stencils is now industrialized, and has become highly technical. By definition, stencils are just a thin sheet of plastic ...

A Brief Guide on PV Module Assembly
PV stands for ‘photovoltaic’ and it pertains to the solar cell module assembly, which is becoming increasingly preferred by electronics manufacturing service providers that use SMT. With PV module assembly, EMS providers can effectively fill capacity and diversify. Solar module assemblies accomplish PV cell stringing using conventional SMT proces...

Advantages of Using Tin Solder Paste
Lead is a common component of solder, but it can be harmful to your health, especially when you are constantly exposed to it. Tin solder paste can be an alternative to lead-based solder pastes. However, applications that require excellent repeatability in print volume may require tin-lead solder pastes to boost productivity and reduce waste. Tin-lead solder ...

Beginners Guide on Liquid Soldering Flux
Soldering is an important aspect of electronics manufacturing, and to make it work, manufacturers must use an appropriate type of solder and flux. Solder will not always bond properly to components, resulting in common soldering issues such as solder bridging, bad solder joints and wetting issues. In some cases, it may not bind the joint at all. Hence, manuf...

Important Industrial Metal Alloys and Their Uses
Many of the materials used in industrial applications can be found in nature. There are over 90 kinds of natural metals that can be useful for industrial applications, but some of them may not be able to withstand the job in their purest form. Iron, for instance, may be strong, but it tends to be brittle and can rust easily when exposed to damp air. Aluminum...

SURFACE MOUNT TECHNOLOGY ADVANTAGES FOR PCB
Surface-mount technology, commonly known as SMT, is a process of making electronic circuits where the components are placed directly onto the surface of PCBs (printed circuit boards.) Some of the Surface Mount Technology advantages for PCBs are summarized below:Instead of connecting through the holes in the board via hole technology, the components are p...

All About Low-Temperature Solders
Low-temperature soldering is applied to the SMT (surface mount technology) process for electronic devices and products that should not be exposed to extreme temperatures. A low temp solder is crucial to the process, and certain types of alloys will be used depending on the process or the product being manufactured. Several benefits are identified from low-te...

HOW DOES LEAD-FREE SOLDER DIFFER FROM REGULAR SOLDER?
With the global electronics manufacturing industry moving swiftly towards sustainable production and environmentally safe practices, the demand for eco-friendly raw materials has increased exponentially. The biggest development in the field came with the RoHS directive that urged manufacturers to move towards safer manufacturing materials. That is how lead-f...

Understanding PV Module Assembly and Its Applications
Providers of EMS solutions that typically rely on surface mount technology (SMT) are constantly seeking ways to fill and diversify their capacity. One of the ways to achieve these goals is by implementing a PV module assembly where photovoltaic cell stringing can make SMT processing and materials more efficient. Fluxes, solders, and reflow technologies can g...
