LPKF Laser & Electronics will present a live webinar on September 4, 2012 at 11 a.m. PDT. The webinar, entitled How Stencil Manufacturing Methods Impact Precision and Accuracy, will address the five parameters that affect precision and accuracy when manufacturing SMT stencils. To register for the event, visit https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/959547094.
The webinar will be hosted by Shane Stafford, LPKF market development representative, and will be presented by Ahne Oosterhof, stencil manufacturing industry expert and founder of A-Laser. The webinar is based on Oosterhof’s white paper, “Solder Paste Stencil Manufacturing Methods and their Impact on Precision and Accuracy.”
Designed for SMT stencil buyers and manufacturers, quality assurance and production managers, as well as supply chain specialists, the webinar examines stencil positional accuracy as a function of the manufacturing process. The webinar breaks down the most prevalent manufacturing technologies of today and analyzes how tension and temperature variables affect the stencil production process. Cp analysis of 13 different laser-cut stencils and one electroformed stencil serve as basis for the findings.
