Alpha to Introduce Latest Technologies at Productronica China 2017

Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will introduce a range of electronics assembly polymers and high temperature dip tinning technologies at the upcoming Productronica China to be held in Shanghai from March 14–16, 2017.

The polymers being introduced include products ranging from ALPHA STAYCHIP underfills, ALPHA STAYCHIP epoxy flux, ALPHA STAYSTIK low temperature adhesives and other ALPHA STAYSTIK epoxy related materials.

"These products are for applications requiring reinforcement of assembled parts/components, low temperature bonding, UV bonding or dual curing bonding. Selecting the right assembly polymers for your application is critical," said Jimmy Shu, Director of Marketing for the Asia Pacific Region.

"ALPHA SnCX-FT07, SACX0307-FT, SnCu3-FT are lead-free alloys suitable for high temperature dipping and lead tinning applications and are suitable to be adopted under high temperature processes >350°C," said Bernice Chung, Regional Product Manager for Alloys. "The alloys have been engineered to retain a highly reflective solder surface with very minimal surface oxide layer formation after long hours of high heat exposure, as compared to the generic alloys such as SnCu0.7 and SnCu3 alloys. The superior wetting performance of this alloy along with reduced pot maintenance due to low dross rates help improve production yield."

In addition, Alpha will feature a new low temperature solder paste, ALPHA® OM-550 HRL1, that will soon be coming to market.  "ALPHA OM-550 HRL1 brings together SAC305-type mechanical and thermal reliability in a low temperature alloy to board level assemblies, which has never been done before," said Phua Teo Leng, Regional Product Manager for Solder Paste. "This material meets reliability requirements typical of motherboard and mobile assemblies, and supports our customers' endeavor to reduce their carbon footprint without impacting performance."

Apart from introducing the above technologies, Alpha will feature ALPHA OM-353 & ALPHA OM-535 lead-free, no-clean solder pastes, and ALPHA EF-2100 liquid soldering flux at their exhibit.

Combating ESD: The Silent Assassin in Electronics Manufacturing

09/20/2019 | Neil Sharp, JJS Manufacturing
ESD is a constant but invisible force within electronics manufacturing that can have a powerfully detrimental impact on production yield, product and product reliability, and company profitability. And as the circuitry within electronic devices continues to get faster, smaller, and more sophisticated, their sensitivity to the effects of ESD is only likely to increase.
