When assembling printed circuit boards with tiny SMD components, the developer is dependent on an exact application of solder paste. A large number of different solder deposits can be realised safely and quickly in a single operation using stencil printing.
With the ProtoPrint S4, LPKF offers a manual stencil printer for precise printing results. The device is suitable for single-sided and double-sided printing of PCB prototypes as well as small batches. The LPKF Edition SMT ProtoPrint S4 uses stainless steel stencils. Due to an integrated clamping frame, polyimide foils can also be used. Depending on the stencil material, the appropriate squeegee material is defined.
