Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – Cost effective Solder Paste Printing

Electronics is a very dynamic market, demanding smaller and smaller circuits, requiring very small tracks and gaps in the PCB layout. This also influences the components which can be used.

As Through Hole (THT) components are rarely available for these requirements, more designs are driven to SMD (surface mount devices). This causes additional costs to your small prototype series, namely no longer can you simply take a soldering Iron and solder wire to manufacture your boards. It is now essential to use Solder paste and a Solder paste stencil and printing device.

Solder paste stencils can be expensive, requiring expensive machines to ensure perfect alignment for the stencil to the board.

Eurocircuits have worked with designers to understand what is required and how we can help to offer the right service for printing your boards with Solder paste.

First we can offer Solder paste stencils, you can order with a click of a button.

We also looked at our customers who need an alignment solution and for this we came up with the eC-registration:

Finally we thought long and hard and wanted to offer an affordable solution to align the stencil and boards accurately inside your lab environment. For this we can up with 2 solutions:

  • Stencil fix, see how this works here
  • Stencil-mate, see how this can help you here
