FCT Assembly to Demonstrate New Technology for Paste Printing during SMTAI

Sep 13, 2013

FCT Assembly announces that it will exhibit its new NanoSlic™ stencil in Booth #410 at the upcoming SMTA International Exhibition, scheduled to take place October 15-16, 2013 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Texas. NanoSlic™ is the world’s most advanced stencil technology for solder paste printing.

The new NanoSlic™ stencil is based on the proven Slic™ stencil with its advanced foil composition and FCTA’s state-of-the-art laser cutting process. Then, a permanent nano coating is applied that is based on a revolutionary chemistry platform called Hybrid-T Technology™. The coating imparts a highly hydrophobic and oleophobic surface to the bottom of the stencil and aperture walls. The robust coating should last the life of the stencil. The technology is comprised of a specifically engineered nano coating applied over its proven Slic™ stencil. The NanoSlic™ technology is surprisingly cost-effective, making improved yields available to all levels of the industry. The technology can be used with current assembly equipment and processes.

Using the newly developed NanoSlic™ coating system, NanoSlic™ is sprayed onto the stencil surface and aperture walls, reducing bridging and significantly improving paste release, permitting consistent printing of the smallest area ratios. The technology will be applied by FCT Assembly at its Memphis, TN location. An added benefit, the NanoSlic™ coating, is environmentally friendly. It does not use any Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a toxic substance currently being investigated by the EPA.

FCT Assembly provides knowledge, expertise and solutions to solder and stencils customers. As the only solder company in the industry that can leverage both elements of the printing process, FCT’s experts have vast chemistry experience and credible knowledge.
