At Capital Equipment Exchange, we restore and offer high-quality used PCB screen printers to improve your manufacturing overhead and workflows. One might argue that the PCB screen printing process is one of the most crucial procedures in assembling quality circuit boards.
Getting the placement of your solder down to a science is critical for any PCB to work, and buying money-saving used equipment just makes sense.
Screen printers are programmed to use a stencil of the finished circuit board for precise solder paste placement. These printers deposit a mix of flux and solder powder before the board goes through the reflow process. The most common method of application is with a squeegee.
Screen printers also clean the stencil for optimal use and store the solder paste to keep it free from impurities between each application. If you think this sounds similar to screen printing in textiles, you would be correct. The process is very similar, though for very different applications.
PCB screen printers are an automated process. These machines are designed to handle loading and unloading then PCBs, creating the stencil, and performing a 2D inspection. To work at optimal levels, the printers must be calibrated with exact measurements and specifications.
We carry some of the top brands and models, including:
PCB screen printing is the industry standard for solder placement in the surface mount process. The benefits are many, and they increase when you opt for used equipment. Our expert technicians fully restore every machine to production-ready standards.
