Alpha to Showcase Latest Products for SMT Assembly at productronica


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will be exhibiting its latest range of product solutions, alongside its sister company MacDermid Enthone Electronics Solutions, at the productronica exhibition in Munich, Germany from Tuesday 14th – Friday 17th November.

Alpha will present its latest stencils innovation, ALPHA tensoRED Master Tensioning Frame at the show. ALPHA tensoRED enables a higher and more even tension compared to ALPHA Tetra Frame.

“Due to the innovative design of ALPHA tensoRED, no air pressure on the frame is needed resulting in reduced maintenance costs and improved reliability,” explained Donald Corlett, Stencils Manager for Alpha Assembly Solutions, a MacDermid Performance Solutions Business. “ALPHA tensoRED also delivers several printing process benefits associated with higher tension such as less paste smearing(1), reduced variation in and improved positional alignment on volume deposits(1)”.

ALPHA tensoRED is now available in all common printer sizes, as well as configuration options for full 29” printer openings.

In addition, Alpha will showcase its newly developed solution for void reduction under bottom terminated components (BTC), the ALPHA AccuFlux BTC-578 Preform System. The system combines Alpha’s AccuFlux BTC-578 preform, solder paste, engineered stencil designs and optimized processing parameters to dramatically and consistently decrease voiding.
