Alpha to Showcase Preform Technology at National Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will exhibit for the first time at the 17th Annual National Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo taking place May 10 – 11 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  

Alpha, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses, will feature its innovative preform products and technology targeted for specific connector, wire harness, and wire process applications.  Highlights will include preform solder sleeves, washers, and collars, available in high performance leaded and lead-free alloys, which are engineered to meet new environmental standards and demanding melting temperature requirements. Alpha will also feature its integrated flux and thermochromic indicator technology to certify solder joints.  

“As a supplier for the Automotive, Aerospace, Defense and Marine industries, Alpha’s goal is to develop and provide next generation products to our customers and the connector processing industries“, said Jerry Sidone, Alpha’s Regional Product Manager for Preforms.  “Our ability to provide low temperature, lead-free alloys in this traditional lead alloy market is one example of Alpha’s next generation of products.“

Stencil Printing Techniques for Challenging Heterogeneous Assembly Applications

04/16/2018 | Mark Whitmore and Jeff Schake, ASM Assembly Systems
A new generation of near microscopic size SMT chip capacitors has appeared in the market, known as either 0201 or 008004. This article investigates and characterizes the stencil printing process for compatibility with M0201 capacitor assembly. Effects of circuit board quality, stencil thickness, and stencil nano-coating are evaluated against solder paste volume transfer efficiency and raw-volume print distribution.
