LPKF ScanCheck inspects the quality of SMT stencils. The software produces an optical scan of the stencil using a conventional PC-Scanner (which is not part of the delivery), and compares it with the production data. Any discrepancies are graphically shown on screen. All of the test results are compiled in a report which is available for tracing to support seamless quality management.
LPKF StencilCheck is suited for a various number of application fields:
Controlling cleanness after stencil cleaning or before starting production.
Controlling stencil service lives by testing the influence of the squeegees and printing parameters on the SMT stencil.
Accuracy check and certification by the stencil manufacturer.
Generating stencil cutting data from PCB scans or the existing solder paste stencil.
Tracing the quality of delivered solder paste stencils: copies of the scan can be archived.
