IPC-7527 Establishes Two Firsts for IPC

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, — The first IPC standard that originated outside the U.S., IPC-7527, Krav til Tinpastatryk, is also the first standard ever developed that focuses on the application of one of the industry’s most basic infrastructure elements, solder paste. Translated into Danish, IPC-7527 was the idea of Task Group Nordic (TGNordic), IPC’s volunteer standards development group in Scandinavia. The standard will help companies assess and improve their solder paste printing processes, which could bring significant improvements in quality and reliability.

IPC-7527 covers the many aspects of solder paste application, from initial placement on the board through production and testing. To equipment operators, the new standard serves as a reference guide with more than 50 photos included in the 15-page standard.

“It [IPC-7527] provides the operators with a standard that will help them make the right decisions when they face issues in production, and no professionals or specialists are present,” says Steven Juel Hansen, co-chair of the IPC Solder Paste Printing Task Group and production engineer at Vestas Control Systems A/S, based in Hammel, Denmark.

While there are standards that detail what a completed assembly should look like, IPC-7527 is the first one to provide requirements for what the printed solder paste should look like and how far off centers can be before they’re considered defects. It covers everything from basic squeegees to jet dispensers and needle dispensers to closed print heads. In addition, IPC-7527 provides information on automated paste inspection using either cameras or lasers.

As IPC manager of assembly technology Kris Roberson explains, the standard also does a nice job of explaining common problems, like solder that has rooftops or saddle shapes instead of a nice brick form, and it suggests solutions so those issues can be fixed.

One of more than 20 IPC standards groups outside the U.S. — and this number is growing — TGNordic identified the need and created the draft standard, after which it took less than a year to move it to publication. Roberson credits TGNordic’s thorough job in the standard’s development for the quick turnaround, given the time needed for public comment and responses, as well as for getting the document ready to publish.

IPC-7527-DK is available for purchase by IPC members for $31. The industry price is $62. For more information or to purchase the standard, visit www.ipc.org/7527-DK.
