In addition to the live show floor demonstrations, Indium Corporation andKIC will hold a voiding clinic at booth #1215 between 1 and 3 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, January 29-30.
The most effective way to reduce voiding in solder joints is to analyze the assembly process from both a materials perspective and from a reflow profiling perspective. Voiding experts from both Indium Corporation and KIC will be on hand to analyze customers’ soldering processes and recommend adjustments to help them minimize their solder joint voiding.
KIC is a recognized leader in automated thermal process tools and systems for reflow, wave, curing, and semiconductor thermal processes. The company pioneered the development of oven profilers and process optimization tools, and has created the next generation of thermal systems to help manufacturers improve thermal process quality and reduce costs.
The IPC CFX Industry 4.0 Digital Factory demonstrations will run Indium Corporation’s materials in two live production lines throughout all three days of the event. Products from the company’s lines of lead-free, no-clean solder pastes and flux-cored solder wire will be featured.
IPC CFX Industry 4.0 Digital Factory is designed to illustrate the achievements made in digital industry technology standards development over the past year. The first line will feature both the HERMES standard (IPC-9852) and IPC’s Connected Factory eXchange (CFX) Internet of Things messaging standard (IPC-2591), working together to deliver SMT automation value. The second line will feature the wider application of IPC CFX across multiple technologies of assembly production, including manual processes.
