Yamaha Motor Corporation USA‘s Intelligent Machinery (IM) Division is pleased to announce the grand opening of its new sales, training and demonstration facility in Marietta, Georgia, USA. Having outgrown the previous facility in nearby Kennesaw, the new facility is a complete replacement of the previous headquarters and offers the ability to double the number of employees while increasing available space for equipment, service, and support operations.

Yamaha is the only SMT vendor with a full line solution.”

In addition to adding factory automated material delivery systems, connected factory tools, computer-controlled component storage and a full line of industrial robots to Yamaha’s already extensive lineup, it was imperative that Yamaha expanded their IM operations in the USA. Tom went on to say, “We have doubled our office capability, and increased our showroom and training/refurbishment area by 80%.  Additionally, we have increased our spare parts inventory and storage area by over 50% to accommodate our additional machines as well as to provide direct support for our many new direct and corporate accounts.”

In the past year, Yamaha has increased direct headcount by over 20% and added 3 new distinct product lines to their portfolio. With a dedicated team of service engineers, applications engineers, technical support personnel and sales people, the IM Team now has room to grow even further in 2019 and beyond.

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.

Failures and Reliability in Soldering

07/09/2019 | Michael Gouldsmith and Zen Lee, Thermaltronics
The definition of failure is "the lack of success in doing or achieving something, especially in relation to a particular activity." If the activity is concerning a soldering process, such a failure can have a downstream impact far beyond the actual solder joint. In this regard, it is first necessary to understand what constitutes a good solder joint because appearance is too often deemed a success.
