Alpha Intros Latest VOC-Free, Zero-Halogen Liquid Soldering Flux


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions is introducing ALPHA EF-2100, their latest VOC-free, zero-halogen liquid soldering flux designed to meet current REACH and RoHS legislation.

"ALPHA EF-2100 shows stable performance compared to EF-2210, Alpha's leading VOC-free flux," said Mike Previti, Global Product Manager for Soldering Fluxes. "The solderability of this product has shown to be equivalent in hole-fill, solder balling and bridging while providing good lead-free solder joint cosmetics with an evenly spread, tack-free residue."

This Tetraglyme-free flux contains zero rosin, low solids, no-clean chemistry and is Bellcore and SIR compliant. ALPHA EF-2100 is a drop in replacement for users of EF-2210, EF-2202, WB-400 & NR-300 who wish to use a non-toxic product. More information on ALPHA Liquid Soldering Fluxes can be found on their website along with the Alpha Selective Soldering Guide which was designed to help customers choose the right soldering materials for their challenging processes.

Cavity Board SMT Assembly Challenges (Part 1)

06/26/2019 | By Dudi Amir and Brett Grossman, Intel Corp.
The concept behind Component-in-Cavity (CiC) is straightforward. If the tallest component(s) on the motherboard can be placed into a recession created in the motherboard, their thickness relative to the components on the surface of the PCB will thus effectively be reduced. While this concept may be straightforward, its implementation is not. That implementation is the focus of this paper. Read on.

3D Optical Inspection Provides ‘Eyes’ for Process Improvements in Industry 4.0
