“JETTING SOLDER PASTE OPENS UP NEW POSSIBILITIES IN YOUR SMT PRODUCTION”
Jetting of liquids is becoming the standard in our industry. Mydata has developed a unique tool to jet solder paste. This non-contact method of applying solder paste has a large number of advantages compared to standard screen printing or dispensing. The challenges of today’s production environment is not only the fact that components getting smaller but the biggest challenge is the combination of small and large components on the same board. Putting the right amount of solder paste for each component will be required to deliver the right quality.
The jetting technology allows to build up the volume by single dots to achieve the right amount for each component. Special applications like pin in paste, applying paste in cavities and many more challenges of today’s requirement can be easily accommodated with this technology.
Practical production challenges will be covered and a suggested solution will be provided.
