KYZEN Corporation’s Dr. Mike Bixenman will present the technical cleaning process technologies paper titled “Understencil Video Effects to Study Solder Paste Transfer and Wiping Effects” at the upcoming SMTA International exhibition. The presentation will be held during Session SMT4, titled ”Stencil Printing Advances for Today's Electronics,” and will take place Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2014 from 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m. in Room 47 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. The paper was co-authored by Chrys Shea, Shea Engineering Services, Brook Sandy, Indium Corporation, and Ray Whittier, Vicor Corporation.

Market forces demand intelligent systems for monitoring and communicating, virtual connectivity and access to information everywhere in the world. To make these forces possible, system level trends require continued miniaturization, performance, reliability and properly formed attachments. Smaller features reduce the process window. To improve solder paste print performance and better understand the behavior of flux-stencil interactions, solder paste release from the aperture wall and on the seating surface of the stencil is critically important. The purpose of this research study is to use video images of the bottom side of the stencil to understand the value of wiping, nano-scale flux repellent coatings and solvent cleaning.

Dr. Mike Bixenman, CTO of KYZEN is known to many as the world’s leading expert in cleaning electronic circuit assemblies and advanced packages. He is also one of the industry’s leading authorities on the design of electronic assembly, cleaning materials and process integration. He literally wrote the book on electronics manufacturing process cleaning standards (Cleaning & Contamination Process Guide). Dr. Mike shares 20 years of experience in the design of electronic assembly cleaning materials and process integration. He was the chair of the 2008 IPC/SMTA Cleaning Symposium and is the current chair of the IPC Cleaning Handbook Task Group.
