AIM to Participate at SMTA Wisconsin Expo & Tech Forum


Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder is pleased to announce that it will highlight its revolutionary REL61 lead-free solder alloy, along with its full line of solder assembly materials, at the SMTA Wisconsin Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place on May 2, 2017 at the Milwaukee Airport Crowne Plaza in Milwaukee. Additionally, AIM Technical Marketing Manager Timothy O’Neill will present at the technical forum.

O’Neill will present the white paper “Conformal Coating over No Clean Flux,” which addresses the complex subject of the application of conformal coating over no clean flux residue. For this study, AIM worked with OEM electronics and conformal coating manufacturers to determine the applicable test methods and the compatibility of various types of coatings and flux types. The results demonstrate possible combinations meeting the mission profile of the assembly with consideration for the assemblers’ capabilities and cost objectives.

AIM will also highlight its innovative high-reliability, lead-free solder alloys. REL61 addresses the most challenging issues with today’s common lead-free alloys, specifically BTC voiding, cost, durability and tin whiskers. It offers a low cost alternative to SAC alloys, with reliability and performance characteristics superior to SAC305 and other low/no-silver solder alloys.  REL22™ is a high-reliability, high-strength lead-free solder alloy for extreme service environments, with reliability equal to Sn/Ag/Bi/Sb/Ni/Cu and a wider process window. To discover all of AIM’s products and services, visit the company at the SMTA Wisconsin Expo & Tech Forum for more information.
