MacDermid Alpha will be featuring its low temperature solder technologies and reclaim and sustainability programs.

MacDermid Alpha will be promoting its recently launched ALPHA OM-358 ultra-low voiding solder paste. ALPHA OM-358 is a lead-free, zero-halogen solder paste designed to provide best-in-class voiding performance on all component types, including bottom terminated components. “This paste provides excellent resistance to electrochemical migration on fine pitch components.“, said Robert Wallace, Regional Marketing Manager for the Americas. “This makes OM-358 ideal for high-reliability applications, especially automotive in-cabin electronics, sensors, and powertrain“. 

In addition, MacDermid Alpha will feature its Metals Reclaim and Sustainability programs. With over thirty years experience, MacDermid Alpha is North America’s largest solder manufacturer and recycler of electronics manufacturing waste. Its proprietary refining system upgrades the recycled material into better than vigin metal, enabling MacDermid Alpha to provide its customers with products using 100% recycled tin. “We are committed to creating a more sustainable supply chain.“, said Mitch Holtzer, Director of the Americas Reclaim Business. “We work closely with our customers to support their environmental initiatives for recycled products and managing their waste streams.“

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
