Tackling SMT Enemy Number One - Raising The Standard of Solder Paste Application

May 14, 2009 | MYDATA automation

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....

Startling Results From Reliability Testing

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....

MYDATA automation AB has changed name to Mycronic Technologies AB

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.

MYDATA Releases New MY600 Jet Printer For High-speed, High-precision Solder Paste Application.

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.

The next-generation MY600 Jet Printer now enables SMT producers to achieve optimal solder joints on complex boards at speeds of more than one million dots per hour, a 50% increase in throughput compared to earlier.
MYDATA exhibits new MY200 pick-and-place machine at IPC APEX 2014.

New software and higher-capacity storage system will significantly boost material handling productivity

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.

Jet printing at 700,000 dots per hour challenges solder paste dispensing

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.

MYDATA market research shows that high-mix challenges are a reality for higher-volume manufacturers

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.
