AIM to Participate at SMTA Wisconsin Chapter Expo & Tech Forum


Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder has announced their participation in the upcoming SMTA Empire Chapter Expo and Tech Forum taking place on May 7, 2019 at Milwaukee Airport Crowne Plaza in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. AIM Solder will highlight its REL electronic solders and its new RX18 and CX18 cored solder wire.

REL22TM is an award-winning, high reliability alloy developed to address reliability and production quality issues common to similar multi-element alloys. Both internal and customer testing has proven that REL22 improves product survival in extreme thermal exposure operating environments such as under-hood automotive, avionics/aerospace and LED lighting. REL61TM is ideally suited for industries which require a cost effective alternative to SAC305 with no loss of processing performance or durability. REL61 provides significant advantages over other no-low silver alloys by offering better flow characteristics at lower temperatures, thus reducing PCB damage and assembly costs.

AIM will also feature its new cored wire solders, RX18 and CX18. The award-winning RX18 is engineered for automated soldering and promotes thermal transfer, fast wetting and reduces voids/skips. With an operator friendly, low odor/smoke formula, CX18 extends the solder tip life and leaves clear, minimal residues.

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.
