Reading time ( words)

ACE Production Technologies, a Nordson SELECT company, and a leading supplier of selective soldering systems, is pleased to announce that registration is now open and seats are available for its upcoming introductory selective soldering workshop.

This introductory workshop will be held March 14-15, 2017 at ACE's Spokane Valley, Washington facility. This comprehensive two-day workshop is designed to educate and enhance an attendee's working knowledge of the overall selective soldering process.

Who Should Attend

  • Process Engineers
  • Manufacturing Engineers
  • Production Technicians
  • Quality Personnel

What You Will Learn

  • How to improve your selective soldering effectiveness
  • Programming tips and tricks
  • How to reduce selective soldering defects
  • Advanced process troubleshooting techniques
  • How to reduce post-solder rework and increase yields

The classroom session focuses on the technical aspects of the selective soldering process and describes the process variables to enhance the flexibility, reliability and quality provided by all types of selective soldering equipment. Your questions about using a selective solder process, and differences in process parameters when working with tin-lead and lead-free solder alloys will be covered in detail. Topics Include:

  • Fundamentals of through-hole soldering
  • Solderability issues
  • Lead-free and tin-lead solder alloys
  • Flux application and no-clean processing
  • Preheating and thermal performance
  • Design guidelines and quality measurement
  • Process troubleshooting guidelines
  • Advanced process optimization techniques

This workshop entitled "Mastering Selective Soldering Processing and Manufacturability" features a combination of classroom curriculum and hands-on training that is designed to educate and enhance an attendee’s working knowledge of the overall selective soldering process. The classroom portion of the workshop will be presented by well-known process expert Bob Klenke, Principal Consultant with ITM Consulting. He has more than 15 years of direct hands-on experience with selective soldering technology and is a frequent instructor for selective soldering, wave soldering and X-ray inspection workshops at APEX and SMTA International conferences.

The hands-on portion of the workshop will be taught by the expert staff members in the ACE application lab. During the hands-on portion attendees will assemble, program, selective solder and evaluate a specially designed test board for 100% plated through-hole fill using X-ray inspection.

Attendees are encouraged to attend a third day for additional hands-on training and are invited to bring their most challenging circuit board assemblies from their workplace for additional testing and detailed application analysis.

More than 225 individuals from over 107 different companies have attended previous ACE selective soldering workshops including a 2-day introductory workshop and a 2-day advanced workshop. These highly successful workshops feature open communications and a continuous information steam that has helped attendees advance their skills, techniques and methods involved with the selective soldering process.

This highly acclaimed workshop features a combination of classroom and hands-on curriculum that significantly compresses the learning curve for those new to the selective soldering process or those who wish to advance their in-depth knowledge.

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.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
