Introduction to the manual dripping solder paste process
At present, the country has higher and higher requirements for environmental protection and greater efforts in link governance. This is a challenge but also an opportunity for PCB factories. If PCB factories are determined to solve the problem of environmental pollution, then FPC flexible circuit board products can be at the forefront of the market, and PCB factories can get opportunities for further development.
  Manual dispensing equipment is used for small batch smt patch production or model prototype and functional machine research and development stages of new products, as well as dripping solder paste or placement glue when repairing and replacing components in production.
  
  Preparation solder paste
  
   Install the needle copper solder paste, put it into the adapter connector, change the lock, and place it vertically on the syringe holder. According to the size of the smt chip processing pad, choose the plastic tapered needle tip with different inner diameters.
  
  Adjust the amount of dripping

   Turn on the compressed air source and open the dispenser. Adjust the air pressure, adjust the time control knob, control the dripping time, press the successive dripping method, step on the switch, and the solder paste will drip out continuously until the switch is released to stop. Repeatedly adjust the amount of solder paste dropped. The amount of solder paste dripping is determined by air pressure, degassing time, solder paste viscosity and the thickness of the needle tip. Therefore, the detailed parameters should be set according to the detailed situation, and the parameters are mainly adjusted according to the amount of solder paste dripping on the smt processing pad. After the amount of solder paste dripping is adjusted properly, it can be dripped on the SMT circuit board.
  
   dripping operation
  
   Place the smt circuit board flat on the workbench, hold the needle tube, make the angle between the needle tip and the smt circuit board approximately 45°, and perform the drip operation.
  
  Common shortcomings and solutions
  
   Tailing is a common phenomenon in the dripping process, that is, when the needle is moved away, a thin line or "tail" occurs on the top of the solder joint. The tail may collapse and directly contaminate the pad, causing bridging, solder balls and false soldering.
  
One of the reasons for tailing is that the process parameters of the dispenser are not adjusted properly, such as the inner diameter of the needle is too small, the dispensing pressure is too high, the distance between the needle and the smt circuit board is too large, etc.; the other reason is butt welding The function of the paste is not well understood, and the solder paste is not compatible with the application process. Perhaps the quality of the solder paste is not good, the viscosity has changed or it has expired. Other reasons may also cause wire drawing/tailing, such as electrostatic discharge to the board, bending of the circuit board, or insufficient board support. For the above reasons, you can adjust the process parameters, replace the needle with a larger inner diameter, reduce the pressure, and adjust the height of the needle from the smt circuit board; check the factory date, function and use requirements of the solder paste used, and whether it is suitable for the coating of this process. Our factory is located in China. For decades, Shenzhen has been known as the world's electronics R&D and manufacturing center. Our factory and website are approved by the Chinese government, so you can skip the middlemen and buy products on our website with confidence. Because we are a direct factory, this is the reason why 100% of our old customers continue to purchase on iPCB.
