iNEMI Solder Materials Workshop at IPC APEX EXPO 2019


Reading time ( words)

iNEMI will be holding a free workshop next week at IPC APEX EXPO 2019, that will focus on the future of solder materials and how these materials must advance to meet the needs of new products and processes.

This interactive workshop will feature speakers, panel sessions and working groups focused on user needs and materials development.

Keynote speakers include Dr. Carl Bilgrien, Vice President of Innovation at Alpha Assembly Solutions, who will speak on “Technology Roadmap to Meet Next-Generation Assembly Challenges”. Ashay Dani, Director, Materials Technology Development, Assembly Technology Development, at Intel Corp., meanwhile, will speak on "Advanced Packaging Materials – Challenges and Opportunities."

The free workshop will be held on January 31, 2019, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Additional speakers include presenters from Indium, HP, Dell, Raytheon, Flex and John Deere. There will also be Q&A panels focused on application-driven materials needs and the challenges of new materials for high-volume assembly.

Registration

This workshop is one of the IPC APEX Buzz Sessions. If you don’t register to attend anything else at IPC APEX, you will need an exhibit hall registration to access this workshop. This is available for free via online registration until Saturday, January 26. After January 26, there is a $40 fee for both online and onsite registration. Click here for IPC registration packages.

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

04/10/2019 | Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
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.
