MacDermid Alpha Introduces New Packaging Option for ALPHA Argomax Sinter Paste

Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, a global supplier of advanced solutions for power electronics and semiconductor applications, introduces a new packaging option for the ALPHA Argomax sinter paste that allows customers more manufacturing options, enables the facilitation of high-volume implementation and supports customer needs for automatic sinter paste dispensing on a stencil.

To meet customer requirements, MacDermid Alpha is now able to supply a jar which has a hole in the bottom (dispense port) from which paste can be dispensed. The new jar with dispense port is in addition to standard jars and the 600 gram and 3000 gram cartridges already available. The new jar reduces material waste, allowing customers to utilize ≥99% of the ALPHA Argomax sinter paste, and reduces downtime changing containers with the jar available in sizes up to 250 grams.

The jar is compatible with premixing as recommended by MacDermid Alpha and facilitates the re-use of partially used containers. Customers also benefit from the ability to automate the dispense process or use a mechanical handheld dispenser which improves the repeatability of the paste replenishment.

“After rigorous testing at our global manufacturing locations, we are proud to bring this new packaging option to our customers, so they can benefit from this new, proven innovation from MacDermid Alpha. Faster, with less waste; these are the key advantages of our new jars with hole”,  said Jeffrey Arouh, Global Product Manager, ALPHA Argomax Paste and Film.

The jar with dispense port is available for all ALPHA Argomax paste offerings. Come and discuss the benefits of the new jar with our technology experts at Booth #1211 at the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Tech Expo, Novi, Michigan from 13th-15th September.
