MacDermid Alpha to Exhibit, Present Five Technology Papers at SMTA International


Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, leaders in the production of specialty chemistries, electronic soldering and bonding materials, will exhibit its latest interconnect technologies and present five technical papers during the SMTA International Virtual Conference and Exhibition from September 28 – 30, 2020.

Three of the MacDermid Alpha brands, MacDermid Enthone, Alpha, and Kester will showcase their latest solutions for electronics manufacturers. MacDermid Enthone will feature Systek SAP, UVF 100 and ETS 1200, its most recent and innovative processes in its IC Substrate Metallization offerings. Alpha will promote ALPHA OM-220, an ultra-low temperature solder that enables peak reflow temperatures below 150°C, making it ideal for soldering heat sensitive components. Kester will feature its newest solder paste NP505-HR, a zero-halogen, lead-free, no-clean solder paste formula developed specifically for high reliability applications.

Two papers of the papers presented will focus on Substrates and PCB Technology. Sean Flueriel, Research and Development Chemist will present “Pit Resistant Acid Copper Electroplating Process for Flash Etching”. Carmichael Gugliotti, Applications Specialist, will present “Single Step Metallization Process for the Filling of Through Holes with Copper.”

Two of the papers will have an assembly focus. As part of the Flux, Solder, Adhesives track, Dr. Karen Tellefsen will present “Advanced SIR Testing for Trapped Solder Paste Flux Residue.”  Dr. Morgana Ribas will present “High-Reliability, Fourth Generation Low-Temperature Solder Alloys” in the Lead-Free & Low-Temp Soldering Technologies track. In addition, Lenora Clark, Director of OEM Applications for Elements Solutions Automotive, will present “A Cruise Through Automotive Safety Systems.”

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.
