Indium Inks Partnership With Mycronic


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation, a premium materials manufacturer and supplier of electronics assembly materials, and Mycronic, a global leader in dispensing and jet printing equipment, have formed a strategic partnership for the development of no-clean and water soluble solder pastes for jetting applications.

The partnership with Mycronic will expand Indium Corporation’s portfolio of proven products designed to address evolving industry challenges. The collaboration will also ensure that new products are fully vetted and tested before users begin evaluations, testing, and ultimately high-volume production.

“At Indium Corporation, we believe that materials science changes the world,” said Ross Berntson, Indium Corporation President and Chief Operating Officer. “Through this partnership and by collaborating with Mycronic’s engineers on our new PicoShot™ solder product offerings, we’re able to bring to market new and innovative solder paste solutions to fit our customers’ needs.”

Mycronic’s MY700 platform is a leading technology for jet printing in the electronics industry, providing solutions to most production- related difficulties of applying solder paste. The solder paste coming out of this partnership will also be compatible with the previous-generation jet printer, MY600, and support existing Mycronic customers.
“It is important for Mycronic to mutually develop solder paste solutions with key players like Indium Corporation,” said Clemens Jargon, Vice President Global SMT at Mycronic. “This partnership will enable us to reach out to a much broader customer base all around the globe and support them on enhanced jet printing applications.”

PicoShot, the first solder paste for jet printing developed under the new partnership, is expected to be released by Q1 2020. PicoShot NC-5M solder paste is compatible with the customer-proven Indium8.9HF halogen-free no-clean solder paste, enabling it to be used in standalone applications such as SiP, jetting into cavities, stencil-replacement, shield attach, and microBGA, as well as complementing the stencil printing of Indium8.9HF. Although designed as a no-clean solder paste, PicoSho NC-5M can be cleaned easily with industry standard cleaning solutions.

Mycronic AB is a Swedish high-tech company engaged in the development, manufacture, and marketing of production equipment with high precision and flexibility requirements for the electronics industry. Mycronic headquarters are located in Täby, north of Stockholm. The Group has subsidiaries in China, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

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.
