BTU’s Fred Dimock to Host SMTA Solder Reflow Fundamentals Webinar


Reading time ( words)

BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for electronics manufacturing, is pleased to announce that Fred Dimock, manager of process technology, will host a webinar with the SMTA on Tuesday, May 26, 2020 from 10−11 a.m. CST.

This webinar is based on the solder reflow fundamentals class and reflow section of the Jump Start Program that was presented at SMTA International Rosemont, IL. It is designed for the new SMT engineers/technicians or current engineers who want a better understanding of the reflow process. It discusses recipes vs. profiles, heat transfer in a reflow oven, oven control, why profiles are shaped the way they are, and how to obtain profiles. Additional topics of discussion include TC accuracy and mounting, profilers, test vehicles and process windows.

Dimock has taught numerous SMTA solder reflow classes and has participated in the 5-45 subcommittee for the development of IPC-7801 Reflow Oven Process Control Standard. He wrote the chapter on solder reflow for the Handbook of Electronic Assembly and A Guide to SMTA Certification by Dr. Lasky and Jim Hall.

Dimock holds an associate’s degree in Mechanical Design from Wentworth in Boston and a bachelor’s degree in Ceramic Engineering from the State University of New York at Alfred (SUNY). He has been recognized as a Distinguished Speaker status at SMTA Guadalajara and received several Best Vendor Presentation awards at the SMTA East China conferences.

SMTA Europe Webinar: What Is a Good Solder Joint, and How Can Solder Joints Be Tested?

11/18/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
