Alpha Cut HR2 ... because small components are getting smaller

For improved printing performance:

  • Higher volume Repeatability

  • Better solder paste Release due to smoother aperture walls

  • Improved print definition on μBGA's, QFN's, 0201's,...

  • Longer stencil life time due to harder Stainless steel material

  • Available for all frame types and in all standard thicknesses

  • Proven in process capability studies and customer trials

  • Advised for stencils with low Area Ratio components


ALPHA® Step ... because big components are getting bigger


Precision Milled Stencils for optimal control of paste volume:

  • In-house production to secure the shortest lead-time

  • Better surface roughness values compared to etched step

  • Less paste smearing and reduced squeegee pressure

  • More flexibility in the design of the "Keep Out" area's

  • Step-up to increase volume, i.e. modules and large connectors

  • Step down to counter AR problems, i.e.  μBGA's and QFN's

ALPHA® Design Rules ... for zero-defects in production

Advanced and automated aperture design modifications:

  • Valor ODB++ component recognition software

  • Automated Area Ratio check to avoid low paste volume

  • Paste powder size alert on every stencil

  • Advanced micro BGA design modifications

  • Fine pitch connector design to avoid bridging

  • Special aperture shapes for void reduction

  • Pin in Paste calculations and designs

  • Avoid mid chip solder balls by stencil design

  • Anti-tombstone designs on 0402 and 0201 chip components (vapor phase design)
