Rehm Expands Presence in Mexico

Reading time ( words)

Early this month, Rehm Thermal Systems officially opened its Technology Center in Guadalajara, Mexico, which was inaugurated with a successful Technology Day. The event was characterized by energy-efficient, sustainable reflow soldering and focused on future trends in the production of electronic assemblies.

Renowned customers and partners from the Greater Mexico region took the opportunity to become familiar with the premises, while at the same time gathering information about Rehm's innovative equipment. Spanning nearly 300m2, the new Technology Center offers the best opportunities to combine theory and practice. VisionXP+, a particularly energy-efficient reflow convection soldering system, is currently available for soldering trials and extensive tests. Other systems will follow during the expansion of the Technology Center in Guadalajara.

In addition to the opening ceremony, visitors were also able to participate in lectures and workshops as part of a Technology Day in order to learn more about sustainable reflow soldering and exchange ideas with the experts on the latest trends, such as the emerging topic of e-mobility. Luis García, Managing Director of Rehm Thermal Systems Mexico, was on location with his team and is looking forward to providing customers with the best possible support in the future. Plant operators can now inform themselves, for instance, about the relevant service functions of VisionXP+ in user training courses and receive practical tips for process optimisation. The most important spare parts are now also quickly and easily available, since the extended premises offer sufficient space for a small storage area.

"The intensive consultation directly at the plant allows better process support before, during and after the investment in a Rehm system. With the new Technology Centre in Guadalajara, we will be able to provide individual customer support, coupled with the latest technology developments and fast response times, as well as further expand our services", emphasises Michael Hanke, Rehm's Global Sales Manager.

In addition, Rehm will increase its presence at the main trade fairs and technology events in the Mexican region. The SMTA Show Mexico – a renowned trade fair for SMD technologies which the German machine builder attended as an exhibitor – already had a successful start this year. We are looking forward to numerous other joint projects with our customers and partners in Mexico.

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.
