San Antonio College Presents ANTIGONE as Part of Summer Rep, 7/14-17
by BWW News Desk - Jun 30, 2014

SAN ANTONIO COLLEGE is proud to announce its next production: a visceral and physical adaptation of Sophocles' legendary tragedy ANTIGONE. Unlike many presentations of this ancient text, however, director Joseph Urick has chosen to present the style in its simplest and purest form: using the art of Mask and voice. "There is no set, no projections, no gimmicks, or special effects," states Urick, "only the actors and their voices, performing a piece that serves more as a ritual for one of the pantheon of gods and goddesses of ancient Greece." When asked what a modern audience could expect from the piece, Urick said, "expect to experience something much different than what we accept as a conventional theatrical experience." (more...)

Photo Stencil Research Paper Print Performance Studies Comparing Electroform and Laser-Cut Stencils Available on Photo Stencil Website
by BWW News Desk - Jun 26, 2014

“There has been recent activity and interest in laser-cut electroform blank foils as an alternative to normal electroform stencils,” explained Rachel Miller-Short, VP sales and marketing, Photo Stencil. “As components get smaller, it is difficult to print solder paste to satisfy the requirements of both very small components, such as .4 and .3mm pitch CSPs, as well as normal SMT components. The large components require more solder paste volume for sufficient solder fillets after reflow; however, if the stencil normally used to print solder paste for SMT components is used for the small components, the apertures are so small that poor paste release may be encountered. The area ratio plays a large part in this dilemma. Our study details the performance of 12 stencils in 5 different categories.” (more...)
