AIM to Host SMT High-Reliability Technology Seminar in China


Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder will co-host the SMT Electronics Assembly High-Reliability Technology Seminar in Shenzhen, China on December 8, 2017. AIM will present two of its most recent papers at the seminar.

Derek Wang, Technical Support Manager, will present the white paper titled “An In-Depth Look at a New Low Cost and High-Reliability Alloy Alternative to SAC305 and Low-/No-Silver Alloys.” His presentation will cover the evolution of lead-free soldering and the limitations of SAC305, the current standard for lead-free electronics soldering. It will explore the effects of nickel, bismuth and other micro-alloy dopants on mechanical and soldering performance.

Flopy Feng, Technical Support Engineer, will present AIM’s paper “The Impact of Reduced Solder Alloy Powder Size on Solder Paste Print Performance,” which highlights the benefits and implications of finer mesh solder powder on critical aspects of solder paste performance. In this study, the key input variables included powder size, effect of room temperature storage, pause time and PCB feature types.  Output included print transfer efficiency, volume repeatability and performance stability over time.

This free seminar, hosted by AIM, Axxon, Mycronic, and Zestron, will be held at the Silicon Valley Power Vehicle Electronic Business Park in Shenzhen, China. For more information, please contact Michelle Peng via email at mpeng@aimsolder.com or by phone at 130-6694-5432.

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.

What Matters Most is Communication

12/04/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
While there may be new techniques and strategies, technologies, equipment, tools, and materials to employ and utilize, there is always one thing that will ensure the manufacturing/ assembly success of your product: communication. Communication between the designer and the assembler will help improve the manufacturability and assembly of the final product—even before the board design gets fabricated.

DFx on High-Density Assemblies

12/01/2017 | Jonas Sjoberg, Chris Nash, David Sbiroli, and Wisdom Qu, Indium Corporation
Use of new technologies poses a number of challenges for solder paste selection, PCB design, assembly process, and reliability. The type of end product will have different challenges, concerns, and requirements in all aspects. The assembly line for many of these end products will look very similar, but specification limits would be different.
