Alpha Assembly Solutions will be hosting a seminar on latest trends and developments in photovoltaic joining materials on Wednesday, August 23 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Quality Resort & Convention Center, Itupeva, near São Paulo, Brazil.
Five different presentations will focus primarily on the impact of recent developments in photovoltaic solder and assembly materials on PV module assembly processing and reliability. There will also be discussion on the industry's envitable transition to lead-free and non-hazardous manufacturing materials and how manufacturers can best transition to these products.
The five presentation titles are:
- The Impact of Solder Materials on PV Module Reliability
- The Benefts of Reduced Solids Tabbing & Stringing Fluxes in PV Module Assembly
- Modifications to the PV Module Assembly Process for Improving the PV Ribbon to Cell Joint Strength
- Preparing for Pb-Free PV Module Assembly Processing
- Trends in Solar Cell Metallization
"As solar power continues to grow in importance in Brazil and throughout the region," says Eduardo Carqueijo, Alpha's South America Marketing and Sales Manager. "Alpha wants its customers to benefit from our technical expertise in this market and portfolio of innovative products."
In addition to the staff from Alpha's local Brazil office, Mike Murphy, Senior Global Product Manager for Solid Solder Alloys and PV Interconnect Materials, will be joining the seminar as one of the primary presenters from Alpha's Global Headquarters in Somerset, New Jersey.
Alpha Assembly Solutions, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses, has long maintained a strong presence of sales and manufacturing expertise for electronic soldering and bonding materials in Brazil and throughout South America.
