With newer PCB’s we are faced with fine-pitch components in denser areas. Rework, soldering and stencil printing have become even more challenging. Yet the need for hand soldering, hand dispensing and manual printing still exists. The Chip Quik solder paste type ‐T5 allows dispensing through smaller apertures. Now solder paste with smaller particles can manually be dispensed for components with less than 12 mil pitch.
