Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, will feature its low temperature solder and void reduction solutions technologies, in addition to its solder debris recycling capabilities at the SMTA Monterrey Conference and Expo taking place on September 12, 2018 at the Hotel Crowne Plaza, Monterrey, Mexico.

Alpha will be promoting ALPHA OM-358 ultra-low voiding paste, a recent addition to Alpha’s Void Reduction Solutions technologies program. Designed for high reliability applications, this paste well suited for automotive, aerospace, LED, and medical customers. “Capable of achieving less than ten percent voiding on bottom terminated components, ALPHA OM-358 provides excellent electrical and thermal performance, increasing production efficiency and reducing the amount of rework,” said Robert Wallace, Regional Marketing Manager for the Americas. “We are pleased to provide a best-in-class paste which exceeds the voiding performance demands of our customers.”

Alpha’s expertise in low-temperature soldering will also be a focus, including its newest low temperature solder paste, ALPHA OM-550. Providing a solution for customers looking for SAC305-type mechanical and thermal reliability, this paste provides efficiencies in both energy and cost while improving BGA mechanical reliability, drop shock performance, and voiding on a variety of package types. During the Expo, Alpha will highlight The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to... Low Temperature Soldering which was recently published and written by several low-temperature solder experts from Alpha.

In addition, Alpha will feature its Recycling Services program. Awarded an export license from SEMARNAT (the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Mexico) to handle and transport nationalized scrap solder paste, debris, dross and other tin bearing materials, Alpha has expanded its recycling capabilities throughout Mexico. “This license is an important addition to our sustainabilty initiatives at Alpha,“ said Mitch Holtzer, Director of Reclaim Business. “As it increases the positive impact our recycling program can have on the rapidly expanding electronics assembly market in Mexico“.
