SMTA Capital Chapter June Meeting Features the Importance of Nano-coatings and Under Wipe Solvents

The SMTA Capital Chapter is pleased to announce its third meeting of 2014 is scheduled for Tuesday, June 17, 2014, at Orbital Sciences Corporation in Dulles, VA.  The focus of this chapter meeting will be “Quantifying the Improvements in the Solder Paste Printing Process from Stencil Nano-coatings and Engineered Under Wipe Solvents” presented by Debbie Carboni, North American Manager, Kyzen.

Over the past several years, research has been performed and published on the benefits of stencil nano-coatings and solvent under wipes. The process improvements are evident and well-documented in terms of higher print and end-of-line yields, in improved print volume repeatability, in extended under wipe intervals, and in photographs of the stencil’s PCB-seating surface under both white and UV light. But quantifying the benefits using automated Solder Paste Inspection (SPI) methods has been elusive at best. SPI results using these process enhancements typically reveal slightly lower paste transfer efficiencies and less variation in print volumes to indicate crisper print definition. However, the improvements in volume data do not fully account for the overall improvements noted elsewhere in both research and in production.

This presentation outlines a series of tests performed at three different sites to understand the SPI measurement processes and algorithms, and suggests inspection parameters to better capture and quantify the correlation between nano-coatings and solvent under wipes with overall print quality and process performance.

Carboni joined Kyzen in 2007 as a Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager. A 18-year veteran of the precision cleaning industry, Debbie’s primary expertise is in the cleaning sector of the electronics industry. Recognizing Debbie’s talents and expertise, Kyzen soon named her North American Manager for Kyzen’s Electronics Division.  Debbie serves as an active member of the SMTA Philadelphia Chapter. She actively contributes as an author of technical papers focused on precision cleaning and presents at various forums and workshops across North America. Carboni brings a unique understanding of cleaning equipment and processes, making her a valuable resource for addressing emerging cleaning challenges.

The evening is scheduled as follows:

  • 5:30-6:30 pm -  Registration, Networking and Dinner
  • 6:30-7:30 pm -  Presentation: “Quantifying the Improvements in the Solder Paste Printing Process from Stencil Nano-coatings and Engineered Under Wipe Solvents” presented by Debbie Carboni
  • 7:30-8:00 pm -  Q & A
