Phil Zarrow to Present SMTA Capital Chapter Tutorial Program

Reading time ( words)

The SMTA Capital Chapter is pleased to announce that it will host a Chapter Tutorial Program on March 15 with Phil Zarrow of ITM consulting presenting “Understanding and Implementing Best Practices in Electronic Assembly Processes”. To RSVP, please click here.  

Topics will cover best practices for the following processes: assembly, solder paste printing, pick and place, reflow soldering, wave soldering, selective soldering, and cleaning vs No-Clean considerations. The event will conclude with a Q&A session with the presenter.

This course drives awareness and solutions to the adverse impact that non-optimal assembly practices and processes have on the product quality and financial success of electronic assembly businesses. A comprehensive perspective on problem issues is developed for the most currently critical electronic assembly process, materials (both existing and emerging), equipment, procedures, and methods. Most importantly, practical solutions are presented. Key issues that consistently result in assembly problems and low yields are identified and resolved. This seminar is intended for anyone involved in directing, developing, managing and/or executing assembly line operations including managers, line supervisors and line engineers involved in manufacturing, design and quality engineering.

When considering implementation of Industry 4.0 solutions, following the hype in the market, attention typically is focused on the need for communication between machines on the shop-floor. Knowing what is currently executing and the status of each process in the factory, as well as all the related resources and support operations, provides critical information for Industry 4.0 computerized management systems.

Step Stencil Technologies and Their Effect on the SMT Printing Process

12/21/2017 | Greg Smith and Bill Kunkle, BlueRing Stencils, and Tony Lentz, FCT Assembly
Components such as quad flat no lead (QFNs), land grid array (LGAs), micro ball grid array (micro BGAs), 0201s and even 01005s continue to push manufacturers to use thinner stencil foils to apply the correct volume of paste onto their boards, but larger components such as edge connectors still require larger paste volumes.

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.
