Indium Corporation Details the Versatility of Indium Alloys


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation's newest informational video provides an overview of the versatility of indium when alloyed with other metals.

This brief video, which can be found here, features Indium Corporation’s Indium and Bismuth Product Manager Carol Gowans as she explains how vast temperature ranges enable indium and indium alloys to be used for many diverse applications. 

“Indium operates very well in a wide variety of temperature ranges,” Gowans explains. “It’s a very fun and exciting material, and I'm still amazed at how it serves new technologies due to its capabilities, including the ability to work in harsh environments, superior wetting performance, and gold leaching resistance. Indium is also really good with regard to thermal fatigue and has fantastic thermal conductivity properties.”

Gowans has more than 30 years of experience in sales and product management, focusing on emerging markets and technologies. Covering a variety of markets, including medical, aerospace, and electronics manufacturing, her goal is to identify the requirements of each target market and select the right tools (including products, technical support, etc.) to meet those requirements. Gowans has authored papers on Solder Fortification® and improving solder joint reliability with the use of solder preforms.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
