AIM Expands Manufacturing Facility in Europe

Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder has announced the expansion of the full-line manufacturing facility in Łódź, Poland. AIM’s European facility offers locally-made solder paste, bar solder, cored and solid wire, liquid flux, cleaners, adhesives and underfills. The fully-staffed facility also provides sales support and customer service alongside AIM’s unparalleled technical support.

The expansion, which nearly doubled the size of the facility that was initially opened in 2015, enables the company to support the growing demand for its products in Europe.

David Suraski, Executive Vice President and Jerzy Liz, Operations Manager jointly cut the ribbon before leading a tour of the state-of-the-art facility.

“We are very pleased about the expansion of our facility in Europe,” said David Suraski, Executive Vice President of the Assembly Division of AIM Solder. “This investment in Europe, in addition to recent expansions in Mexico, United States and Asia, are further proof of AIM’s dedication to continually expanding its global footprint.”

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.
