Reading time ( words)

SMART Group, Europe’s largest technical trade association focusing on surface mount and related technologies, announces that it will host a workshop called "Soldering Voids: Formation, Causes and Mitigation" on October 25, 2016 at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Ansty Park near Coventry.

The all-day event will begin at 9:30 a.m. with coffee and delegate registration, and is expected to conclude at 4 p.m. The workshop will include presentations from soldering consumable suppliers, inspection equipment suppliers and from Manufacturing Technology Centre staff working with the SMART Group.

Topics presented include:

  • What is a void? What agreed definitions can we use?
  • What are the root causes of voiding? What can we do to prevent these?
  • How good is your inspection equipment for void detection? What new techniques are available?
  • How does voiding impact the performance and reliability of your products?
  • What are the current international standards applicable to voiding? 

This event is ideally suited to any member of staff working in electronics manufacturing and design. Managers also will benefit from a fuller understanding of the issues currently being experienced in our industry.

The price for the workshop is £85 plus VAT for SMART Group Members and £175 for non-members. The cost for delegates includes tea and coffee, lunch, and full access to copies of all the presentation material immediately after the event. Additionally, there is a limited opportunity to book a tabletop exhibition space at this workshop. Each space booked allows for the cost of one delegate attending.
