Alpha to Feature Low-Temp Solder at Ontario SMTA Expo & Tech Forum


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will be promoting its low-temperature technologies and reclaim services at the 2018 Ontario SMTA Expo & Tech Forum being held on Wednesday, June 6 at the Edward Village in Markham, Ontario, Canada.

Alpha will be promoting its diverse product offerings for low temperature soldering, including its newest low temperature solder paste, ALPHA OM-550 with HRL1 alloy.

Paring ALPHA OM-550 paste chemistry with the properties of the HRL1 alloy has created a high performing, high reliability solder paste that improves both drop shock and thermal cycling performance versus existing low temperature alloys. The drop shock performance and the thermal cycling reliability of mixed alloy joints increased by 100% and 20% relatively, compared to other low temperature alloys, enabling improved mechanical reliability. "This paste provides our customers with efficiencies in both energy and cost while providing the BGA mechanical reliability required of today’s components.”, said Robert Wallace, Marketing Manager for the Americas. Further discussion about low temperature pastes will be covered during the Low Melting Point Solder Pastes Panel taking place at 3:15 pm. Anna Lifton, Alpha Lead Scientist and R&D Project Manager, will be one of the three featured panelists.

In addition, Alpha will also feature it’s reclaim and recycling services program.  Helping customers throughout the Americas dispose of their solder paste debris for over 30 years, the reclaim and recycling services are an important component of Alpha’s Sustainability programs. Having the safest, most efficient, environmentally-compliant recycling solutions, Alpha takes pride that no materials are ever sent to a landfill.
