Amerway Inc. announces the availability of all types of standard and custom anodes for electroplating in electronics manufacturing.

Electroplating applications include surface preparation, decorative finishing on metals and plastics, sealing, aircraft bearings, and electrical interconnects in microelectronic devices.

In making the announcement, Tim Brown, Sales Manager, said, “We make our anodes using only high purity, virgin materials; this ensures that Amerway cast or extruded anodes are the highest quality available.  Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility applies the latest methods of advanced production control to ensure highest quality and consistency, and strict laboratory control of the manufacturing process ensures repeatable quality and consistency. Our high-purity virgin tin anodes are made in our Altoona, Pennsylvania manufacturing facility and are used by electronics plating operations across North America.”

Anode metals include copper, nickel, tin, copper-tin, lead, tin-lead, tin-zinc, zinc, and others.

Typical anode forms include bars, stars, ovals, ingots, flats, nuggets, chunks, foil, ribbon, cathodes, cut cathodes, rectangles, slugs, and many custom shapes for various plating setups.

PCB Pad Repair Techniques

01/08/2018 | Bob Wettermann, BEST Inc.
There are a variety of reasons behind pads getting "lifted" completely or partially from the laminate of a PCB. Per the just revised IPC-A-610 Revision G, a defect for all three classes occurs when the land is lifted up one or more pad thicknesses. Lifted pads can occur when a device has been improperly removed or there is a manufacturing defect in the board construction. In any case, as with any repair, the ultimate decision on the ability to repair the pad lies with the customer.

Focus on the New

01/05/2018 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
It seems like it wasn't too long ago when I was writing about the optimism of the electronics manufacturing and assembly industry going into 2017. Now, here we are again at the beginning of the new year, looking at new trends, disruptive technologies, and emerging markets for 2018. I am also proud to announce our new branding as well as our fresh, new look.

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.
