Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic assembly materials, will feature its Void Reduction Solutions technologies and solder debris recycling capabilities at the Orange County Expo and Tech Forum taking place on Thursday, November 1 at The Grand in Long Beach, California.

At the Expo, Alpha will be promoting its Void Reduction Solutions (VRS) program, a program designed to help manufacturers meet the demaning void requirements of their customers.  Alpha’s latest ultra-low voiding paste, ALPHA® OM-358 is the latest addition to the VRS tool kit which includes a variety of products and processing solutions. 

ALPHA® OM-358 was engineered for high reliability applications, and well suited for automotive, aerospace, LED, and medical applications. “This paste achieves less than ten percent voiding on all types of bottom terminated components.”, said Robert Wallace, Regional Marketing Manager for the Americas.  “With excellent electrical and thermal performance, ALPHA® OM-358 increases production efficiency and reduces the amount of rework, a significant beneift for our customers.“.

Alpha will also feature its Recycling Services program.  As part of Alpha’s sustainability initiatives, Alpha recycles scrap solder paste, debris, dross, and other tin-bearing materials from manufacturers throughout North America, and recently expanded its recycling capabilities throughout Mexico, having received an export license from SEMARNAT, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Mexico, to handle and transport nationalized scap material.  “The recycling market continues to expand throughout the Americas,“ said Mitch Holtzer, Director of Reclaim Business, “Our goal is to make the recycling process simple for manufacturers, allowing recycling to become a realistic and attractive alternative to sending materials to land-fills.“.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
