Nordson SELECT to Present at SMTA Guadalajara Expo and Tech Forum

Reading time ( words)

Nordson SELECT, a Nordson company, and a global provider of selective soldering systems, is pleased to announce Bob Klenke, technical consultant, will present “Selective Soldering of Challenging Components” at the SMTA Guadalajara Expo and Tech Forum on October 24, 2019 at Expo Guadalajara in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Most through-hole components can be easily soldered with the selective soldering process without difficulty, however some types of challenging components require additional attention to ensure optimum quality control is maintained. Fine-pitch micro-connectors, compact peripheral component interface (cPCI) connectors, dual in-line memory module (DIMM) connectors, coax connectors and other high thermal mass components can present challenges when soldered into multilayer printed circuit board assemblies, heavy backplanes or high-density interface (HDI) boards. 

Compact peripheral component interface connectors especially present solderability issues due to their beryllium copper termination pins. This presentation is based on real-world consulting experience with selective soldering and details the appropriate process controls necessary to obtain optimal solderability. Best practices together with many hands-on solutions for improving manufacturing yields and solder joint integrity will be discussed in detail.

This presentation is intended for process engineers, manufacturing engineers, shop floor technicians, as well as manufacturing and quality personnel who are experienced in SMT and through-hole assembly who want to further their expertise in implementing and troubleshooting the processes, equipment, and materials involved in modern electronic assembly technology.

Bob Klenke is a technical consultant with Nordson SELECT as well as a principal consultant with ITM Consulting, a full service technical consulting and market research firm serving the electronics assembly industry. His expertise includes process optimization, process troubleshooting and value-added defect resolution strategies. He has more than 30 years of experience with electronics assembly and is a frequent workshop instructor for selective soldering and wave soldering courses at APEX and SMTA International conferences.
