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

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>

If you have any questions about this or any other service please feel free
to get in touch and we will be more than happy to help.
