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.

Impact of Low-Temperature Soldering on PCBAs

11/14/2018 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
Majority of the respondents in our survey answered that reliability is the biggest impact of low-temperature soldering on PCBAs. Issues they highlighted include the strength of the solder joints, "uncooked" solder, insufficient solder, and solder not adhering properly, to name a few. However, they did note that once the process becomes mainstream, proven and an industry standard, they expect low-temperature soldering to result to higher quality PCBAs.

Investigation on the Assembly Process for m03015 and a Brief Look at m0201 Components

11/14/2018 | David Geiger, Robert Pennings, and Jane Feng, Flex
Components continue to shrink in the SMT world, and the next evolution of passive components includes m03015 (009005) and m0201 (008004). The m03015 and the m0201 components will see primary adoption in products that require further miniaturization, which would be SiPs. These modules would then be assembled into products through attachment, another assembly, or via other interconnect methods. This article explores the development of an assembly process (SMT only) for the m03015 component.

Alpha Assembly Solutions on Training, Education, and Low-Temperature Soldering
