Reading time ( words)

KIC announced that it will participate in the SEHO Technology Days, scheduled to take place May 7-8, 2019 at the SEHO North America, Inc. Technology Center in Erlanger, Kentucky. KIC Service Manager Robert Baxter will present “Profiling the Wave Solder Process.”

This presentation will discuss the need for profiling the wave process and showcase various types of wave solder profiling configurations. Analyzing profiling results and optimizing wave profiling as well as continuous wave process monitoring also will be covered during the presentation.

Baxter has been with KIC for 22 years. He has been in the electronics industry for nearly 30 years, both in Europe and the US. Baxter has extensive experience in both reflow and wave soldering.

The SEHO Technology Days are based on a simple principle: To provide a perfect balance of theory and practical application. Discuss your manufacturing challenges with leading flux, solder and equipment suppliers who will provide their expert insight on all relevant process subjects.

Move toward the future of Smart Factory integration with line connectivity, flexible production, traceability, data analytics, process transparency/control, machine learning and real-time insight.

Optimizing Solder Paste Volume for Low-Temperature Reflow of BGA Packages

07/22/2019 | Keith Sweatman, Nihon Superior Co. Ltd
In this article, Keith Sweatman explains how the volume of low-melting-point alloy paste—which delivers the optimum proportion of retained ball alloy for a particular reflow temperature—can be determined by reference to the phase diagrams of the ball and paste alloys.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 1)

07/16/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.

Surface Treatment Enabling Low-Temperature Soldering to Aluminum

07/15/2019 | Divyakant Kadiwala, Averatek Corporation
An increasingly popular method to meet the need for lower cost circuitry is the use of aluminum on polyester (Al-PET) substrates. This material is gaining popularity and has found wide use in RFID tags, low-cost LED lighting, and other single-layer circuits. However, both aluminum and PET have their own constraints and require special processing to make finished circuits.
