AIM to Highlight REL Alloys at SMTA Wisconsin


Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder is pleased to announce their participation at the SMTA Wisconsin Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place May 8, 2018 at the Milwaukee Airport Crowne Plaza in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. AIM will highlight their revolutionary REL61 and REL22 lead-free solder alloys, along with their full line of solder assembly materials.

AIM’s new alloys provide the PCB assembly industry with unique solutions to address the limitations of current industry offerings. REL22 is an award-winning, high reliability alloy with durability characteristics that double the reliability of SAC305 in harsh environments. REL61 is a low silver solder alloy that solves the process challenges associated with many other low/no silver solder alloys. With a 10°C lower melting temperature and superior wetting performance, REL61 can lower process temperatures, prevent PCB damage, and reduce costs and waste. AIM’s REL alloys are available in paste, wire and bar formats and are engineered for reliability, usability, and cost effectiveness.

Along with their REL products, AIM will showcase its full line of advanced solder materials, including its solder pastes, liquid fluxes, tin/lead and lead-free alloys. To discover all of AIM’s products and services, visit the company at the SMTA Wisconsin Expo & Tech Forum for more information and to speak with one of AIM’s knowledgeable staff members.

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.

Supply Chain Update and the Impact of 5G

I caught up with Stephanie Martin, senior VP of global supply at Vexos, to talk about the current landscape of the industry from an EMS perspective. Stephanie describes an ongoing technology shift occurring with the industry’s move to smaller case sizes and why it’s in the customer’s best interest to look at the design cycle and go as small as they can on components.

Reliability vs. Failure

Summer is officially underway here in the Northern Hemisphere, and just like the temperatures, we’re turning up the heat in this issue and getting technical. Enter “Reliability Man,” the hero who must persevere against all the challenges thrown in his path.
