FCT Assembly today announced that Tony Lentz will be presenting “Can Nano Coatings Really Improve Stencil Performance?” during the poster session at this year’s IPC APEX EXPO on Wednesday, March 26 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.
As component assembly density continues trending to finer dimensions, successful stencil printing demands stricter tolerances on equipment setup, solder paste material and stencils. One recent innovation generating much industry buzz is the specially engineered stencil applied coatings that claim to achieve printing capability improvement. With the stencil marketplace now offering a variety of unique chemical coatings on laser cut solder paste printing stencils, this poster session offers a comprehensive review of this technology and performance results.
The poster will be displayed during the entire week of the IPC APEX EXPO. Mr. Lentz will be available to answer any questions regarding stencil coatings, solder paste, solder fluxes and printing issues during and after the poster session.
