For the first time after 2019, AMPER in Brno can now open its doors again. With well over 500 exhibitors, this trade fair for the Eastern European electronics industry continues to be an important meeting place for professionals from research and practice. registered for AMPER 2022. As an established manufacturer of reflow soldering systems, Rehm has continued to expand in recent years and also offers innovative solutions for convection and condensation soldering with and without vacuum as well as for conformal coating processes in the field of protective coating in this region.
AMPER in Brno, Czech Republic, has become one of the largest trade events for the electronics industry in Europe. Rehm Thermal Systems is exhibiting again this year and will be presenting a CondensoXC Vac for condensation soldering, among other things, there from May 17 to 20, 2022 in Hall F, Stand 2.15. This space-saving yet powerful batch system is the ideal choice especially for low throughput and is mostly used in laboratory applications, small batch production or prototyping. For optimal and virtually void-free soldering results, this system is available with a vacuum option.

With the closed-loop system for the injected medium Galden integrated in the vapor phase soldering systems of the Condenso series, Rehm has used a future-proof, sustainable solution right from the start. Due to the hermetic sealing of the process chamber (simultaneously vacuum chamber), the "evaporation loss" of the Galden during soldering is also excluded. In addition to minimal maintenance, operating costs are also reduced due to lower medium consumption.

The San Diego sun was warm and bright on Wednesday afternoon, but it didn’t stop the crowds from filling the aisles at IPC APEX EXPO 2023 for the trade show’s second official day. Technical conferences, professional development courses, and a keynote from IPC President and CEO John W. Mitchell kept attendees busy. But the real highlight of the day was upstairs where approximately 300 high school students from the local San Diego area rode buses to the San Diego Convention Center for a day full of activities meant especially for them.

IPC has a responsibility to its current members but also in attracting and retaining new talent to the electronics manufacturing industry. This is no more evident than in the STEM event hosted by the IPC Education Foundation at IPC APEX EXPO. For the 2023 event, more than 500 students from nearly a dozen high schools are expected to participate in hands-on activities, touring the show floor, and learning from industry experts. The Career Panel Luncheon will expand across the in-person event as we broadcast and stream to schools across the United States.

In this Q&A, Rob Rowland, director of engineering at Axiom Electronics, discusses his new IPC APEX EXPO Professional Development course, “Reflow Profiling Simplified,” on how to create a standardized methodology to accurately generate new reflow soldering profiles. Rob explains, “In this class, I’ll explain how I approached this work to help others develop similar methodologies for creating their own reflow soldering profiles. My presentation also includes the basic reflow profile recipes I have been using for the past 20 years.”
