Alpha to Partner with Lenz for Technical Seminar in Warsaw


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will present its expert knowledge on optimizing SMT, wave and manual soldering processes with emphasis on low-temperature solutions and preform technologies at the upcoming technical seminar hosted by Lenz, Alpha’s premium distributor for Poland. The seminar will be held on Thursday 20th September in Warsaw.

Corné Hoppenbrouwers, sales and technical support for Alpha Assembly Solutions, will present on SMT, wave and hand soldering best practices as well as low-temperature soldering solutions. Corné will discuss the benefits of Alpha’s revolutionary HRL1 solder alloy which was designed to exhibit improved drop shock and thermal cycling performance over existing low temperature alloys. ALPHA HRL1 paired with the ALPHA OM-550 low-temperature chemistry blends to create a high reliability solder paste product which delivers a reduction in component and board warpage of up to 99%, as well as significantly improved BGA mechanical reliability compared to other low temperature alloys.

Daniele Perico, engineered materials development manager for Europe for Alpha Assembly Solutions, will present on the benefits of using preform technologies, such as alpha exactalloy tape and reel preforms, for PCB assembly. Preforms enable the precise increase of solder volume for improved joint reliability, as well as reduced flux residue for increased electrical reliability and void reduction under component thermal pads.

Alpha and Lenz Sp.j have enjoyed a successful partnership for over 20 years, with Lenz supplying Alpha products throughout Poland.

The Technical Seminar will be held at the Radisson Blu in Warsaw, Poland from 09:00am on Thursday 20th September. As well as presentations from Alpha, representatives from Kyzen and Tecnometal will also give technical presentations.

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.
