SMTA Capital Chapter Hosts Free Webinar with BTU's Fred Dimock


Reading time ( words)

The SMTA Capital Chapter is excited to host the first chapter webinar of 2021 on January 20th at 11:00 a.m. EST. Fred Dimock, BTU International, will be presenting “Operation of a Vacuum Reflow Oven with Updated Void Reduction Data.”

This presentation is a sequel to the preliminary data Fred provided to the chapter in early 2019 and will include an overview of the vacuum reflow process and an explanation of why vacuum reflow is of interest to the electronic assembly industry.  The presentation will discuss finalized data from the vacuum reflow void reduction experiment completed at the Universal Instruments Process Laboratory and results from live demonstrations at ACI Technology. The live demonstrations will include reworked boards that had been previously processed without vacuum reflow and Fred will describe the refinements that have been made to subsequent vacuum furnaces.

Fred Dimock, Manager of Process Technology at BTU International, has extensive experience in thermal processing and has assisted many companies with process refinements over the years. Fred has authored numerous articles on lead free solder, process control, and the operation of continuous furnaces. He also wrote the chapter on solder reflow for the “Handbook of Electronic Assembly and A Guide to SMTA Certification” by Dr. Lasky and Jim Hall. He has taught numerous SMTA solder reflow classes and participated in the 5-45 Subcommittee for the development of IPC-7801 Reflow Oven Process Control Standard.

Given these difficult times the Capital Chapter officer team is happy to provide this webinar to all attendees at no charge.

Nolan Johnson and Barry Matties talked with Axiom’s Rob Rowland and Kevin Bennett about current challenges facing EMS manufacturing. During this conversation, the pair discuss the impact of data file formats on pricing, manufacturing, and quality. As they explain, the use of intelligent data formats such as IPC-2581 and ODB++ can speed up the data import process compared to Gerber.

SMTA Atlanta: Peachy in the Peach State

04/27/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
I attended SMTA Atlanta Expo and Tech Forum last week, and it’s safe to say that this industry is definitely back in business in the Peach State. The aisles were busy all day, and the presentations were well attended.

How Smart Are You?

04/25/2022 | Michael Ford, Aegis Software Corp.
The standard IQ test has been established for many years now. Though the content within these tests has been cleverly and carefully put together, there are different kinds of “smarts” among people. It is likely that those who are putting together IQ tests will favor the kinds of “smarts” that they themselves have. Humans are very complex, however. Everyone is different, with natural skills and abilities in a multitude of disciplines: technical, artistic, social, and others. Put us all together as a society, and we make a pretty good team, at least when we all work together and support each other.
