Alpha to Feature Low-Temp Solder Paste at Texas and New York SMTA Expos


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will be promoting its latest low-temperture technology and updated Reclaim Services materials at the 2018 SMTA Expos being held in Dallas, Texas on April 10 and in Liverpool, New York on April 24. 

At the Expos, Alpha will highlight Alpha OM-550, its newest low-temperature solder paste. Officially launched in January 2018, this innovative paste is setting new industry standards for performance and reliability. 

Alpha OM-550 was designed to improve drop shock and thermal cycling performance versus existing low temperature alloys. Among its many features, Alpha OM-550 reduces warpage up to 99%, increasing production yields and reducing energy consumption.  “The performance of this paste continues to impress us,“ said Robert Wallace, Regional Marketing Manager for the Americas. “Customers are pleased with the efficiencies in both energy and cost in addition to the BGA mechanical reliability, especially when compared to other low temp alloys.“ 

In addition, Alpha will also feature the recently completed Alpha® Recycling Services Brochure.  The brochure outlines the simple processes for electronic assemblers to turn production waste into revenue.  Capable of processing all varieties of waste materials, Alpha has the technological edge for maximizing the recycling of solder paste and related solder paste debris, including used jars, dispensers, and stencil cleaning paper.  Alpha has the safest, most efficient, environmentally-compliant recycling solutions and takes pride that no materials are ever sent to a landfill.

Investigation on the Assembly Process for m03015 and a Brief Look at m0201 Components

11/14/2018 | David Geiger, Robert Pennings, and Jane Feng, Flex
Components continue to shrink in the SMT world, and the next evolution of passive components includes m03015 (009005) and m0201 (008004). The m03015 and the m0201 components will see primary adoption in products that require further miniaturization, which would be SiPs. These modules would then be assembled into products through attachment, another assembly, or via other interconnect methods. This article explores the development of an assembly process (SMT only) for the m03015 component.
