Alpha to Highlight Low-Temp Soldering Processes at smartTec Event


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will present on the benefits of Low Temperature Soldering Processes at the ‘Soldering Processes in Theory and Practice’ event hosted by smartTec, Alpha’s Premium Distributor for Germany and Central Europe, from October 23-25.

Ralph Christ, Customer Technical Support Manager for Germany at Alpha Assembly Solutions will present on Low Temperature Soldering Solutions at the event, which will also cover topics such as selective soldering, measurement and inspection and stencil design. “Low Temperature soldering processes can have many benefits relating to both the assembly process and to the environment”, he comments. “Alpha’s revolutionary low temperature solder paste ALPHA® OM-550 HRL1 provides improved mechanical reliability, drop shock performance and thermal cycling compared to other low temperature alloys. With a minimum peak temperature of 185°C compared to 245°C, the product can also greatly reduce energy consumption in the SMT process.”

The event will take place at smartTec’s Soldering Competency Center for Europe (SCCE) at the smartTec headquarters in Rodgau, Germany. As well as seminar presentations, visitors will have the opportunity to take part in a number of practical demonstrations and also discuss the latest trends and advances in solder technology with experts from Alpha and smartTec at a number of information stands.

Alpha and smartTec have enjoyed a successful partnership for many years with smartTec supplying Alpha products across Germany and Central Europe, as well as Denmark, Sweden and Norway under smartTec’s Nordic division.
