Screen Printer (or Stencil Printers) are used to deposit solder paste in precise quantity and location onto the printed circuit board (PCB). Stencil printers can also be used for printing adhesive with proper programming, squeegee, and stencil design.
Most screen printers are fully automatic and will handle everything from loading & unloading the PCB on a conveyor to aligning the PCB fiducials with vision to printing the solder paste with programmable parameters (speed, angle, pressure, etc). Common options include 2D inspection to ensure print quality, vacuum stencil clean to clean the stencil between prints, and flexible PCB support options to make sure the PCB makes good contact with the bottom of the stencil.
Most fully automatic printers, regardless of age, are fully capable of handling the complete range of SMT component packages and latest technologies. Leaded or Lead-free paste makes no difference to the screen printer.
Some common brands for SMT screen printer include:
