The demands on volume delivery and positioning accuracy for solder paste deposits are increasing as the size and complexity of circuits continue to develop in the electronics industry. According to the iNEMI 2013 placement accuracy for these kinds of components will reach 6 sigma placement accuracy in X and Y of 30 um by 2023.
This study attempts to understand the dependencies on piezo actuation pulse profile on jetting deposit quality, especially focused on positioning, satellites and shape. The correlation of deposit diameter and positioning deviation as a function of piezo actuation profile shows that positioning error for deposits increase almost monotonically with decreasing droplet volume irrespective of the piezo-actuation profile. The trends for shape and satellite levels are not as clear and demand further study. ...

Is screen printing technology able to keep pace with rising quality demands and increasingly complex board layouts? Or, is new jet printing technology ready to fill the gap? A comparison study between the two methods reveals some interesting differences. Screen printers offer some possibilities for optimizing solder paste deposits, but optimization is far easier and quicker with the jet printer. At the same time, the ability to print individualized deposits on every single pcb pad may be the ultimate answer to the growing quality challenge....
Mar 13, 2009 | Lars Wallin, Project Manager Live Production Events at EP shows at the Stockholm Fair IPC European Representative.
Open product reliability testing in Stockholm, Sweden in January as part of a live production event generated some quite startling results. It was apparent that many components simply cannot handle the high reflow temperatures of a lead-free soldering process, and that many surface-mount machine suppliers are battling significant problems with QFN packages and other components that are mounting edgeways (bill boarding). However, some suppliers have achieved good results....

Feb 20, 2015 | Mycronic will showcase smarter electronic inventory control and innovative big board applications at IPC APEX 2015. Pointing to explosive demand for “smart cars”, smartphones, tablets and LED lighting, Mycronic says it will introduce next-generation electronic assembly solutions to help subcontractors and OEMs navigate this fast-moving climate with high productivity. New solutions to be on display include stencil-free jet printing at speeds up to 1,080,000 dots per hour, more flexible pick-and-place solutions, software and next-generation inventory management with innovate Agilis Smart Bin technology.
Jul 01, 2014 | Today MYDATA automation AB has changed its name to Mycronic Technologies AB. The new name will unify the operations of MYDATA and parent company Mycronic AB, former Micronic Mydata AB, under a single brand.
May 05, 2014 | Having pioneered jet printing of solder paste for electronics manufacturing, MYDATA is now introducing a further innovation to boost speed and quality. Called the MY600 Jet Printer, the new platform allows SMT producers to achieve high-precision solder joints at speeds of more than one million dots per hour. Increasingly, the jet printing of solder paste onto PCBs is being used at all levels of the industry to cope with complex broadband and mixed technology boards, among other factors.
Mar 27, 2014 | At APEX 2014 in Las Vegas, MYDATA will introduce to the North American market its new MY200 placement machine, delivering twice the accuracy and higher throughput.
Nov 15, 2013 | According to the MIT Technology Review, the biggest productivity gains in electronics manufacturing and other industries today are being fueled by “robots, automation and software”. In its June 2013 issue, the magazine cited a study showing a diverging gap between rising industrial productivity and flat long-term employment dating back to 2000. Although controversial, it is an observation that fits well with the future roadmap of MYDATA, the global SMT innovator, which continues to bring “productivity boosters” to the SMT industry across many application areas.
Nov 15, 2013 | Productronica 2013: The new MY200 performance series features a new linescan vision system and a new high-speed mount head, delivering twice the accuracy and higher throughput.
Nov 15, 2013 | The popularity of jet printing technology to apply solder paste to printed circuit boards is growing fast as more and more electronics manufacturers understand the key advantages over traditional methods of solder paste application, such as screen printing or dispensing. Today hundreds of electronic producers worldwide are using jet printing for a diverse range of applications – situations that demand speed, design freedom and high-quality solder joints.
Nov 15, 2013 | In an independent global survey of SMT manufacturers*, MYDATA found that many of the classic production challenges facing low-volume, high-mix producers have now reached a "tipping point" for higher volume producers as well. The survey revealed that several key challenges are common to low-, mid- and high-volume producers: changeover efficiency, quality, line utilization, stock accuracy and reducing the cost per mounted component.
Feb 25, 2013 | MYDATA has recently completed successful testing of a new low-temperature solder paste for jet printing.
Feb 14, 2013 | MYDATA, maker of the popular SMD Tower for compact storage of electronics manufacturing components, hasannounced a new feature allowing for automated storage of loaded Agilis feeders in their entire range of tower models
