SOLUTION To achieve high quality solder paste printing proc- ess, board retention (i.e. vacuum) and support are vital during the printing process. These three objec- tives are easily achieved when printing single sided boards or the first side of double sided boards, as the under side of the board is flat and can easily be supported by a flat support nest. Supporting the PCB is much more diflicult when printing the second side as the underside of the board is now li.tlly loaded with components.
