AbstractIn 20th century, Electronics elements have become most significant part of the regular life. The main heart of electronic element is PCB which supports and manages mostly machines and equipments these days. Therefore manufacturing of board and assembly of electronic elements is one of the crucial and significant objectives for most of the companies. Better life of PCB’s depends on electronic elements and its assembly with board. Solder paste is used as adhesive material for assembly purpose. It is deposited on board using stencil and electronic elements are mounted on it and heated for strong bond. This study investigates on factors affecting stencil printing process due to variation in squeegee speed and density of solder paste. This study is based on computational fluid dynamics virtual simulation. Prototype is developed for modelling purpose and simulation software is used to simulate the flow behaviour of solder paste during stencil printing process.
