Feedback V4;

 

Hi!

Just writing to let you know that someone reviewed Syringe Paste Liquid Dispenser 5V Dc Usb -New V4.

Excellent Product, Excellent Support
Very helpful for SMD assembly. Vendor very responsive and answers questions quickly. Much better than manual plunge-syringe systems.

You can see the review on the product page.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Solder paste printing process BASIC:

Basic Operation of dispenser V-0.
In December Version V-1 was released! see http://wordpress.mencinger.biz/ for details!!

Solder paste is typically used in a screen-printing process, in which paste is deposited over a stainless steel or polyester mask to create the desired pattern on a printed circuit board. The paste may be dispensed pneumatically, by pin transfer (where a grid of pins is dipped in solder paste and then applied to the board), or by jet printing (where the paste is sprayed on the pads through nozzles, like an inkjet printer).

As well as forming the solder joint itself, the paste carrier/flux must have sufficient tackiness to hold the components while the assembly passes through the various manufacturing processes, perhaps moved around the factory.

Printing is followed by pre-heating and reflow (melting).

The paste manufacturer will suggest a suitable reflow temperature profile to suit their individual paste; however, one can expend too much energy on this. The main requirement is a gentle rise in temperature to prevent explosive expansion (“solder balling”), yet activate the flux. Thereafter, the solder melts. The time in this area is known as Time Above Liquidus. A reasonably rapid cool-down period is required after this time.

A good tin/lead solder joint will be shiny and relatively concave. This will be less so with lead-free solders.

As with all fluxes used in electronics, residues left behind may be harmful to the circuit, and standards (e.g., J-std, JIS, IPC) exist to measure the safety of the residues left behind.

In most countries, “no-clean” solder pastes are the most common; in the United States, water-soluble pastes (which have compulsory cleaning requirements) are common.

Storage
Solder paste should be stored in an airtight container at low, but above freezing, temperatures. It should be warmed to room temperature for use. Exposure of the solder particles, in their raw powder form, to air causes them to oxidize, so exposure should be minimized.

Description of V2- V3 Solder Paste Dispenser

DISPENSER for Manual solder Paste
application to PCB for reflow soldering or Hot-Air Soldering technics

Electronic 5V DC powered Solder paste V2 Dispenser AIR FREE /AIR LESS operation.  V2 and V3

The goal to build this Dispenser was to be as cheep as possible  and to avoid using any 3D printed parts! But still reliable and safe for use by hobby guys and school kids for low volume of PCBs.

This solder paste dispenser is generally to be used with any solder paste in a syringe (or flux, liquid, glue,..) –  syringe volume 10 to 15 cc.
Two buttons for PRESS and RELEASE turn the stepper motor shaft left or right and move piston in syringe in chosen direction and force the liquid or paste in syringe to move out through needle.
Dispenser has built in very powerful stepper motor with full metal gear gearbox witch with tremendous pressure forces paste or liquid out of the syringe. Basic use is for SMD SMT solder paste application to PCB for reflow soldering.
Appx. 25x PRESS-ings make 1 (one) rotation of the piston which moves the piston for apx. 0.5-1mm (0,019685 -0,3494 dec. inch) in the syringe.
I tested this V1 and V2 of Dispenser with several different Solder Paste Manufacturers and different needle sizes:
1) Blue/metric 0,41mm – US/Gauge 22- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uP4FD3tp3ck
2) Purple Gage 21 – 0.51mm
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LzHhUJj54ug
3) Gauge 23-24     (inside Dia 0.38 -0.41 mm)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4PbVOhY2UQ
and as well stepper motor force produced – apx. 14 kg / 30 pounds

Power Supply needed is 5V DC (0.5 to 1A).  I simply use USB cable and phone charger or computer USB port, spare phone USB battery pack…or similar.

Due to fact that many Solder Paste Co. request in manuals storage of the Solder Paste in cool areas with 0-10deg C storage temperature please note that Syringes stored in fridge shall be heated up with hot air/ shrink tube hot air gun / hair drier or in hot water to 40-60 deg C for better viscosity of solder paste for use with this dispenser.

You have to take into account that this Dispenser is not as fast as air dispenser but it is fast enough to keep you doing right thing!  I have placed a few videos on my You Tube – test with different needles and paste,… have a look!!
Here is a procedure we worked-out with one of my German Client: I quote the email text:
“I didn’t pre-heat the solder paste, just took it out of the fridge and let it rest for some hours at room temperature. I built up pressure until some paste came out of the needle and then released the pressure. First I tried pressing and instantly releasing again, but it was quite hard to get the right amount of paste on the pads…. It was a success with pressing and not releasing after. While the paste was slowly flowing I just did pad after pad and always got the right amount. I tried different needles and it worked even with really narrow ones. Did some DFNs, TQFPs, SSOPs, and many 0603s. Worked really neat, just had to remind me to build new pressure once in a while 🙂
I like the dispenser and I’m happy to finally leave my toothpick method behind me 🙂  “”
Best regards,
Nicolas

I would highly recommend BEGINERS NOT TO start with metal needles but with but with PLASTIC CONICAL outlets!!
