Alpha to Present on New Tin Applications at ITRI Asia Tin Summit


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will present on consumption and new tin applications at the ITRI Asia Tin Week, which will be held from November 21–24 in Shanghai, China.

"Changes of Tin Application in Electronics Assembly Industry" will be presented November 23 by Valentijn Van Velthoven, Regional Vice President of Asia Pacific for Alpha Assembly Solutions, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses. 

"Considering the change of macro environments, I would like to present the link between the macro trends we see in our everyday world and how they impact solders, how they are being used, what drives the markets, and ultimately, how they affect demand for solder and alloys," said Valentijn. His presentation will specifically focus on photovoltaic, power electronics and LED industries.

Asia Tin Week, organized by the global tin association, ITRI, comprises of two main formal sessions: the ITRI Asia Tin Summit focused on industry and market issues and the China International Solder Technology Forum. Both sessions are simultaneously translated in both English and Mandarin. This is the 4th ITRI event held in China following 2011 in Hangzhou, 2013 in Kunming and 2015 in Shanghai. With strong support from other world leading organizations, this event will provide a comprehensive forum for discussion and networking between members of the global tin industry.

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.
