Aqueous Technologies to Host '2016 Cleaning and Reliability in Review' Webinar

Reading time ( words)

Aqueous Technologies will host a webinar on Thursday, December 1, 2016 at 8:00 AM (PST) entitled "2016 Cleaning and Reliability in Review." Aqueous Technologies’ President and CTO Michael Konrad stated, “This year, we have produced or participated in multiple cleaning and reliability workshops, symposiums, and webinars. During this webinar, we will recap the most relevant, interesting, and popular cleaning and reliability-based topics from our 2016 educational events.”

Scheduled topics include a discussion of various failure mechanisms associated with the absence of cleaning, a review of one company’s successful endeavor to convince NASA to allow aqueous-based cleaning, a review of another company’s multi-million dollar losses that a $0.03 process could have avoided, a review of the underestimated importance of rinse, and Cisco's five year forecast of connected devices (IOT). Results of the 2016 Cleaning and Reliability survey will also be presented.

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.
