Reading time ( words)

Nordson SELECT, a Nordson company, and a global provider of selective soldering systems, has announced that Philipp Grosse, area sales manager DACH, will present at the Southern Germany Soldering Forum scheduled to take place September 11-12, 2019 at Nordson MATRIX in Feldkirchen, Germany near Munich.

Quality assurance in the soldering process is an essential factor for economic success and customer satisfaction in electronics production.  Both the business analysis of the process, as well as the selection of the soldering process, and the testing of manufactured components, are the core themes of this event presented by Productronic magazine in cooperation with smartTec GmbH.  High profile speakers will provide insight into the topics in exciting and interesting lectures.  Specific questions will be welcomed from the audience with valuable tips and insight provided by the panel of specialists.

Attendees to the soldering forum will learn about quality assurance in the soldering process, including:

  • Economic analysis of soldering processes
  • Quality assurance by the process optimized choice of soldering materials
  • Test procedures for quality control and quality assurance
  • Process control by optical measurement systems

The program will include presentations by the following process experts:

  • Economic analysis of manufacturing processes, Uwe Geisler, Managing Director, smartTec GmbH
  • The controlled selective soldering process, Philipp Grosse, Area Sales Manager DACH, Nordson SELECT GmbH
  • Quality assurance by process-optimized choice of soldering materials, Alan Plant, Regional Applications Manager Europe, Alpha Assembly Solutions
  • Highly integrated components nondestructive testing - X-ray analysis, Uwe Geisler, Managing Director, smartTec GmbH
  • Inline process control by optical measurement systems – AOI, Sean Langbridge, European Sales Director, CyberOptics
  • Quality assurance in hand soldering, Norbert Weide, Regional Manager Germany, Austria & Poland, OK International Ltd.
  • Sustainable protection of the solder joint through selective conformal coating, Gerd Schulze, Key Account Manager, Nordson ASYMTEK

The program for the soldering forum will be the same on both days of the event and will be presented in German.  The evening program will take place at the ibis Hotel München Messe in Munich, Germany.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
