Solder paste stencil review

Posted on Monday, April 23rd, 2012 in kit biz by DP

Check out this solder paste stencil review [PDF!], including differences between laser cut and chemically etched stencils:

Page 11 has nice photos comparing three stencil production methods, chemical, laser, and electro-form. There is good information, scattered through-out. pg 15 to paraphrase “go slower!” seems a key pattern, it’s repeated for other things like the spreader speed.

Via the forum. Thanks AndThen!
