MacDermid Alpha's Ansuman Das to Discuss Challenges of Flux Cleaning During SMTA Webinar


Reading time ( words)

Ansuman Das of MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, is presenting on Flux Cleaning from PCB Assembly: Challenges, Methods and Assessment on Wednesday 17th April, organized by SMTA India, Bangalore Chapter.

Although most PCB assemblies manufactured today involve a no-clean process, many applications still demand the flux residue to be removed after soldering due to more stringent electrical requirements. In this SMTA webinar, Ansuman Das, R&D Manager of Soldering Products & Fluxes for MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, will discuss the challenges facing assemblers today in terms of post-soldering flux cleaning and how to address with available methods.

“Change in design, materials and manufacturing processes involved in assembling has made the cleaning process more and more complex,” said Ansuman Das. “It is important to understand the chemistry involved in the cleaning of different types of fluxes in different cleaning processes, as well as knowing the methods used to evaluate the cleanliness of the PCB assembly.”

The webinar will also cover the cleaning of paste fluxes and solder pastes in PCB assembly.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
