His experience in domestic and international customer support and sales, process research, engineering, quality control, materials, personnel, finance, marketing, and manufacturing gives him a unique ability to work with cross-functional groups to obtain positive results.

Fred has assisted many companies with process refinements, and has authored numerous articles on lead free solder, process control, and the operation of continuous furnaces. Additionally, he is considered to be a thermal profiling expert by his colleagues and a highly rated SMTA instructor with more than 40 papers, presentations, webinars, workshops, and publications given worldwide

“I am excited to embark on this adventure and am looking forward to using my years of cross-functional experience to assist others with process optimization and problem solving,” commented Mr. Dimock.

He recently received Distinguished Speaker status at SMTA Guadalajara Mexico and is a key presenter for the SMTA Jump Start program for new engineers. Further, Fred is a member of a vacuum reflow void reduction team that recently completed an in-depth experiment at the Universal Instruments Advanced Process Laboratory and conducts Vacuum Reflow Workshops at ACI Technologies.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.
