MicroCare Returns to Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Show


Reading time ( words)

The cleaning experts at MicroCare UK Ltd. will present their expanding range of innovative precision cleaning products at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics in Farnborough, stand J145, from February 5-7, 2019.

Tergo Metal Cleaning Fluid (MCF) will be showcased during the exhibition as interest in this innovative cleaner grows from the metal injection moulding (MIM) and 3D printing industries. Parts manufactured by these highly-advanced processes require special chemistries to assist in completing the component. Scott Wells, General Manager, MicroCare Europe explains; “We are receiving increasing enquiries for products to help debind parts made through MIM and 3D technologies. Tergo MFC is just one of the products from MicroCare that is resolving this difficult finishing process.

“Parts made through MIM use binding agents during the manufacturing. The binding agents must be selectively removed before the component can be sintered.  In many instances the binders require a selective cleaning chemistry to help remove up to 80% of the binder, without negative impact on the dimensional stability of the part when it is sintered. Tergo™ MFC helps in this important finishing process.”

As well as working as an effective debinder in MIM manufacturing, Tergo™ MCF is one of the strongest vapour degreasing fluids on the market and is compatible with a range of materials including metals, ceramics, most durable plastics and elastomers.

Importantly it has been formulated to comply with  stringent European regulations and is designed to replace hydrocarbon degreasers, nPB, TCE, methylene chloride and PERC. The range of Tergo™ products have a low Global warming Potential and are REACH/ROHS compliant.

Another product from the Tergo™ family to be highlighted during the exhibition is Tergo™ High Performance Flux Remover. This is commonly used for high volume production cleaning of printed circuit boards in an automated vapour degreasing system. Its unique formulation helps companies to clean flux from PCBs faster, better and at lower cost while meeting ever-more stringent European regulations.

It is a unique, non-flammable cleaning chemistry specifically engineered to clean challenging high-temperature solder pastes and flux residues. It has the added benefit of removing stubborn white residue from PCBs and can also be used as a degreaser. Tergo™ High Performance Flux Remover even removes slight oxidation and tarnish from finished surfaces making it a highly effective cleaning solution.

The full range of MicroCare UK Ltd. products will be exhibited at Stand J145 from 5-7 February 2019 at Farnborough, UK.

Impact of Stencil Foil Type on Solder Paste Transfer Efficiency for Laser-cut SMT Stencils (Part 1)

04/24/2019 | Greg Smith, BlueRing Stencils
As innovation and demand continue to drive miniaturization in electronics, manufacturers face the constant challenge of assembling smaller and smaller components with repeatable processes and high yields. Stencil printing is the first step in the PWB assembly process, and improvements to the SMT stencil can significantly improve yields, especially for more challenging miniaturized products. The primary inputs in the SMT stencil manufacturing process are material, equipment, and processes, and by continuously improving these inputs, the overall print process is improved. The most important material in the process of manufacturing SMT stencils is the foil itself. This article investigates foil types used with the goal of determining which foils provide the best print performance.

Tips & Tricks: Water Contamination and Flux Expiry

04/17/2019 | Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Solder joints that form properly are not expected to exhibit reduced reliability. However, a higher number of defects created tends to lead to a higher chance that defective connections escape detection through inspection and functional testing, and that’s not a risk to be taken lightly.

Tips & Tricks: Humidity Level for Electronics Assembly

Low relative humidity (RH) can allow for higher static charges to build on objects. It can also affect solder pastes, especially OR-class pastes, and this can reduce print performance and stencil life. Read on to find out what level of RH you need for your assembly facility.
