Alpha to Host Low Temperature Assembly Technology Seminar in Suzhou, China


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will host a full day seminar on "Low Temperature Assembly Technology" on May 18, 2017 in Crowne Plaza Hotel in Suzhou, China.

The free seminar from Alpha, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of business, focuses on the current hot topic "Low Temperature Soldering". Topics include "A History and Overview of Low Temperature Solder Alloys", "A New Generation of Low Temperature Solder Alloys (HRL1)", "iNEMI Collaborative Effort on Low Temperature Soldering", "Low Temperature Soldering SMT Experiment" and also the newly coming soon to market "ALPHA OM-550 HRL1 Solder Paste" will also be introduced at the seminar.

"ALPHA OM-550 HRL1 represents the culmination of years of research and development, bringing SAC305-type mechanical and thermal reliability in a low temperature alloy to board level assemblies once thought impossible. ALPHA OM-550 HRL1 meets reliability requirements typical of motherboard and mobile assemblies, and supports our customers’ endeavor to reduce their carbon footprint without impacting performance. We are therefore excited to bring together representatives of our industry who have taken the first step towards reaping the benefits of this game changing class of materials in an event to share and showcase the results of their efforts at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Suzhou," said Phua Teo Leng, Regional Product Manager of Solder Paste. "Alpha has had a long-standing history of being a leader in innovation and sustainability, and OM-550 HRL1 is yet another statement of Alpha's commitment to the industry that we support the transition to a low carbon economy."

Solder Printing Process Inputs Impacting Distribution of Paste Volume

12/14/2017 | Marco Lajoie and Alain Breton, C-MAC Microelectronics
The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.

Improving Solder Paste Printing

12/12/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
Of the three elements involved in the solder paste printing process—stencil, solder paste, and printer—the stencil is considered one of the major factors affecting the transfer efficiency, accuracy, and consistency, of solder pastes into the pads, especially with the continuing trend towards miniaturization.

Equipment Matters in Solder Paste Printing

12/06/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
The solder paste printing process has always been considered a major contributor to yield loss. According to many studies, solder paste printing accounts for up to 70% of all PCB assembly defects. For the December issue of SMT Magazine, we interviewed experts in the solder paste printing process to learn more about the key issues leading to this huge percentage of defects, and the technology developments that are addressing these challenges and improving yields in the process.
