INTERFLUX Electronics Completes Testing on New Alloy at Ersa Demo Room


Reading time ( words)

Kurtz Ersa North America is pleased to announce that it recently completed tests with INTERFLUX Electronics on a new solder alloy. The tests were run on INTERFLUX’s LMPA-Q alloy on the VERSAFLOW selective solder machine. The company offers a full range of tests at its demo room in Plymouth.

Ersa ran tests on INTERFLUX’s new cost-saving, high-speed, low melting point soldering alloy for wave and selective soldering. The new LMPA-Q alloy also is available as a solder paste for reflow soldering. The alloy can be used with existing older equipment as well as with latest state-of-the-art high-end soldering machines.

Albrecht Beck, president of Kurtz Ersa NA commented, “The alloy has undergone extensive testing on our equipment, and has passed all tests. Ersa is proud to be the point of contact in the U.S. for INTERFLUX. Additionally, Ersa Germany is the official distributor for INTERFLUX in Germany. We are excited to announce that we can run two different alloys in our Powerflow S wave machines and any of our selective systems that are arranged with two pots with no change-over time.”

Around the world, Ersa’s customers and business partners have access to spacious demonstration, application and training centers outfitted with the most modern equipment. There are seven Ersa Service Centers of this kind in total, all of them boasting the complete soldering systems product portfolio, as well as the Ersa “Tools, Rework and Inspection” business line. In all Ersa Service Centers, the company‘s experienced application engineers are ready to demonstrate the Ersa hardware and test it for specific purposes.

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.
