As more and more assemblers consider post-reflow cleaning of circuit assemblies, many are presented with numerous cleaning questions. In line with this, Aqueous Technologies will kick off its 2018 Tech Tuesday Webinar series with “A Beginner’s Guide to Cleaning Circuit Assemblies.”
This webinar is designed to “begin at the beginning.” Several cleaning related topics will be reviewed including the reasons for cleaning, contamination related failure mechanisms, cleaning methods and costs, and cleaning best practices for 2018.
The one-hour technical webinar, to be held January 9, 2018, from 8:00am to 9:00am, will be presented live by Mike Konrad, an SMTA "Distinguished Speaker," and is offered free of charge.

Much has been written about the increasing shortages of electronic components such as MLCCs, chip resistors and other semiconductor devices. And the manufacturing industry is now seeing price increases and greatly extended lead times. It seems the situation is likely to get rapidly worse rather than better. What can we do? Read on.
Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
I-Connect007 Editor Patty Goldman interviews one of Alpha Assembly Solution’s solder process experts, Traian Cucu, who is based at Alpha’s R&D center in New Jersey. Traian, along with Morgana Ribas, have played key roles in the development of Alpha’s innovation new low-temperature solder paste process. He also talks about how this solves many of the defects issues that one would see on a SAC assembly process.
KIC announced that MB (Marybeth) Allen will present at the SMTA Capital Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, August 23, 2018 at the John Hopkins University/Applied Physics Lab in Laurel, Maryland.
