Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions was the recipient of four awards at NEPCON CHINA, recognizing its high level of achievement in soldering products technology. These prestigious awards were presented in Shanghai on April 24 & 25 by SMT China and EM Asia, two leading publications covering electronics assembly technologies in the Asia Pacific.The awards presented to Alpha include: 

SMT China Vision Awards:

  • ALPHA OM-550 Low Temperature Solder Paste won the “Excellent Award” under SMT Assembly Materials category
  • ALPHA SAC305 Ultrafine Cored Wire won the “Vision Award” under the SMT Assembly Materials category 

EM Asia Innovation Awards:

  • ALPHA OM-550 Low Temperature Solder Paste won best “Solder Paste” under the Materials category
  • ALPHA SAC305 Ultrafine Cored Wire won best “Other Solder Materials” under the Materials category

“Alpha is committed to continuously develop high reliability materials and environmentally-friendly electronics assembly solutions, and ALPHA OM-550 is good example of that,” said Phua Teo Leng, Global Portfolio Manager of SMT Assembly Solutions for Alpha.

ALPHA OM-550 has a lower processing temperature that enables the reduction of greenhouse emissions. The lower temperature requirements also significantly reduce component warpage, which leads to improved throughput and yield.

“ALPHA SAC305 Ultrafine Cored Wire offers excellent wetting and high reliability for fine pitch component soldering. This product is designed to offer good spooling quality and consistent diameter size to ensure smooth wire feeding when used in robotic soldering,“ said Bernice Chung, Global Portfolio Manager of Wave Soldering Solutions for Alpha.

Stencil Printing Techniques for Challenging Heterogeneous Assembly Applications

04/16/2018 | Mark Whitmore and Jeff Schake, ASM Assembly Systems
A new generation of near microscopic size SMT chip capacitors has appeared in the market, known as either 0201 or 008004. This article investigates and characterizes the stencil printing process for compatibility with M0201 capacitor assembly. Effects of circuit board quality, stencil thickness, and stencil nano-coating are evaluated against solder paste volume transfer efficiency and raw-volume print distribution.
