BTU International, Inc. is pleased to announce that Fred Dimock, manager of Process Technology, will present at ACI Technologies’ Open House. The event will take place on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 on ACI’s manufacturing factory floor at its facility in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Dimock will present the equipment and process used to address two important reflow topics. The first will be the elimination of voids in thermal pads by using vacuum reflow, and the other is keeping flexible circuits and thin boards flat during reflow.
Dimock has assisted many companies with process refinements, and has authored numerous articles on lead free solder, process control and the operation of continuous furnaces.
Additionally, Dimock teaches numerous SMTA solder reflow classes and has participated in the 5-45 Subcommittee for the development of IPC-7801 Reflow Oven Process Control Standard. He wrote the chapter on solder reflow for the ‘Handbook of Electronic Assembly’ and ‘A Guide to SMTA Certification’ by Dr. Lasky and Jim Hall.
Dimock holds an Associate’s Degree in Mechanical Design from Wentworth in Boston and a Bachelor’s Degree in Ceramic Engineering from the State University of New York at Alfred (SUNY). He is a long-standing member of the SMTA Technical Committee.
