Reading time ( words)

The Assembly division of MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, will be hosting a customer technical seminar focusing on reliability and sustainability, in partnership with PreventPCB in Verigare, Italy on Tuesday, February 26.

The seminar will include presentations from both MacDermid Alpha and PreventPCB on the latest trends in the electronics assembly industry including void reduction, low-temperature soldering, process traceability and MTBF, with a particular emphasis on the ALPHA Sustainability programs including ALPHA Recycling Services.

Donato Casati, sales manager for Italy and the Balkans, will be presenting on ALPHA Recycling Services alongside 2C Ecologia, an ALPHA Certified Recycling Partner for Italy. ¨The electronics industry is often criticised for its lack of sustainability. Through programs like our ALPHA Recycling Services we enable electronics manufacturers to meet their environmental and legislative requirements, whilst also maximising the return on their solder dross, scrap and solder paste waste,“ said Casati. ¨MacDermid Alpha is working with a number of Certified Recycling Partners across Europe, including 2C Ecologia, to enable local collection and an increased level of support for our customers.“

The partners are certified by MacDermid Alpha, and are legally authorised to collect metal waste, as well as other waste from the electronics assembly process and hold all necessary permits.

PreventPCB has over 20 years‘ experience in PCB production, and can offer services such as PCB lay-up, thermal stress analysis, dielectric materials characterization, solder joint acceptability, thermal simulations and aging tests in their state-of-the-art-laboratories.

Four Silver Linings in the Stormy Clouds of Pandemic, Supply Chain, and Inflation

09/14/2022 | Dr. Ronald C. Lasky, Indium Corp.
It may be difficult to see any bright spots in the current and recent economic situation. We have all experienced the devastation of the pandemic, supply chain issues, and most recently, inflation. However, as a senior technologist for an international materials supplier (Indium Corporation) and a professor of engineering at an Ivy League research university (Dartmouth College), I offer these four silver linings for those of us in the electronics industry.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.
