Alpha to Exhibit Cored Wire, Preform Product Innovations at Matelec Madrid 2016

Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will have its latest product innovations showcased by its distributor for Spain, AIM (American Iron Metals, S,L) at the Matelec show in Madrid, Spain on October 25–28, 2016.

Alpha's extensive product range including, ALPHA Telecore HF-850, Alpha's fastest wetting and lowest spattering, Halogen-Free and Halide-Free Cored Wire. Alpha Telecore HF-850’s rapid wetting meets drag soldering and all other common soldering needs. Its clear residue allows easy inspection of solder joints and the very lower spatter rate ensures board cosmetics and user comfort is maintained.

In addition, ALPHA Exactalloy Preforms will also be exhibited at the show, one of the many solutions Alpha offers to increase reliability in electronic assemblies. ALPHA Exactalloy Preforms are used to precisely increase the solder volume in solder joints. This results in increased strength of the solder joints, enabling them to withstand harsh operating conditions and improve conductivity.

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.
