During productronica 2019, the I-Connect007 Editorial Team met with some of the industry's top executives, managers, and engineers.
In this video interview, part of the productronica coverage, the I-Connect007 team speaks with Product Manager Chris Nash and Senior Product Manager Andy Mackie, both with Indium Corporation.
Editor Nolan Johnson sits down with Nash and Mackie to discuss Indium’s focus on creating innovative products for the 5G, automotive, semiconductor, and high-reliability segments.
Mackie offers a preview of Indium’s plans for 2020 and beyond, including lead-free drop-in sintering materials that can be dispensed and printed more quickly than ever before. As Mackie says, “Material science changes the world.”
The productronica event is one of the world’s leading trade fairs for electronics development and production. The productronica trade fair is held on alternating years, at the Messe München in Munich, Germany. The next productronica will be held November 16-19, 2021.

Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.
