FCT Assembly today announced that field application engineer, Tony Lentz, received high scores for his presentation during SMTAI. Lentz presented the paper titled “Performance Enhancing Nano Coatings: Changing the Rules of Stencil Design” in Rosemont, IL last month.

Attendee feedback included: “Very good experimental design that was presented very effectively for clear communication of data and recommendations” and “I love attending Tony’s presentations at various SMTA conferences and meetings. Always good stuff!”

Lentz’s presentation investigated the effect of nano coatings on solder paste printing performance. Transfer efficiencies were studied across aperture sizes ranging from 0.300 to 0.800 area ratios. The effects of nano coatings on transfer efficiencies of tin-lead, lead-free, water soluble, no-clean, and type 3, 4, and 5 solder pastes was studied. Solder paste print performance for each nano coating was summarized with respect to all of these variables.

Lentz has been in the electronics industry since 1994, and worked as a process engineer at a circuit board manufacturer for five years. He has extensive experience performing research and development, quality control, and technical service with products used to manufacture and assemble printed circuit boards. Additionally, Lentz has been involved with APEX for many years. He holds B.S. and M.B.S. degrees in chemistry.

Tony Lentz will be presenting his next paper at the IPC APEX EXPO on the topic of solder paste evaluations and simple methods for measuring the performance of paste. For more information about this paper and more, please visit http://fctassembly.com/technicalpapers.php.
