KIC announced that MB Allen, manager for KIC’s Applications & Sales, will present at the SMTA Capital Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, August 22, 2019 at the Johns Hopkins University/Applied Physics Lab in Laurel, Maryland. Allen will present “Optimization of the Reflow Profile to Minimize Voiding.”

Void reduction is a significant concern and controversial topic in electronic assembly. Voiding impacts electrical, thermal and mechanical performance. There are many variables such as substrates, components, solder paste, acceptable void levels and of course the reflow profile. This discussion will focus on the optimization of the reflow profile as one of the solutions for the reduction of voiding.

KIC also will showcase the Reflow Process Inspection system, RPI i4.0, automatic profiling system with integrated network software for real-time data sharing, dashboard and traceability.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
