Horizon Sales Builds Momentum with Gen3 Product Line in North America

Reading time ( words)

Horizon Sales is pleased to announce that their initial efforts as the exclusive North American distributor for the Gen3 product line have kicked off tremendously. Since the start of their relationship with Gen3 at the beginning of 2020, Horizon has equipped their Brighton, Michigan demo room with several Gen3 products, and accomplished multiple customer visits to see the machines in action. Some Gen3 products that have been extremely popular with their customer base are the Gensonic stencil cleaning system, the AutoSIR and the MUST3 solderability tester.

The Gensonic Stencil Cleaning System is especially good at removing solder paste from very small apertures as small as those used for 0201 components. It can be used either directly on the stencil mounted on the printer or after the stencil has been removed. The Gensonic stencil cleaner uses a 40khz ultrasonic generator that cleans with great efficiency, especially in tough applications such as partially set glues.

AutoSIR is used to measure changes in Surface Insulation Resistance. The AutoSIR2+™ system represents a dramatic improvement over existing SIR test alternatives, and its shielded precision electronics allows state-of-the-art accuracy resistance measurements to be made up to 1014 Ω.

The MUST3 solderability tester offers the capability to measure down to 0.001mN. It is THE most accurate and comprehensively equipped test system of its type in the world. It has automatic component alignment and testing, immediate pass/fail information on completion of each test, step and repeat function for multi-leaded devices, testing ability down to 0201 devices and more.

In business for more than 25 years, Horizon provides state-of-the-art equipment and supplies to its customers, helping them to achieve best-in-class status in their respective markets. Horizon Sales represents the mid-western states of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Western Pennsylvania, Illinois, Eastern Iowa, Wisconsin and Florida.

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: How Engineers Can Use SPI Tools for Verification

05/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Koh Young’s Ray Welch and Brent Fischthal detail how engineers can work with SPI tools to verify how small they can go in component size with their solder paste application, and how the company’s SPI equipment is helping not only to verify but also to help drive the development collaboration between solder paste and stencil printer manufacturers, and inspection tools and software.
