During the SMTA Guadalajara Expo, Mr. Turrubiates will present “Cleaning of Electronics Assemblies in Limited Spaces & Low Standoff Components” on Wednesday, September 21st, at 12:00 PM. The presentation will discuss challenges, cleaning methodology, findings, and advantages of using cleaning agents over DI Water.
At the show, ZESTRON will promote our new maintenance cleaner, ATRON® DC. The cleaning agent was designed to remove the conformal coating from pallets, fixtures, and tools. It quickly and reliably removes different coating materials, including acrylics, urethanes, and epoxies, without the need for labor-intensive manual cleaning.

In this follow-up to his recent interview on the Q4 2022 outlook, Shawn DuBravac, IPC chief economist, provides an update on the incoming supply chain for EMS providers. Naturally, this conversation centers on component availability, where the supply crunch is easing, and by how much. It doesn’t seem we’ll be seeing any across-the-board relief for some time to come, but Shawn’s higher-altitude perspective brings insight to your daily planning.

It’s officially fall, and that means it's time to start planning your trade show attendance. To help you make decisions about when and where to go, we’ve put together a list of industry trade shows. It has been two long years with no or few in-person trade shows, and we’ve felt it. So, now we’re back in business and ready to hit the road. Do you have a show or conference to add to our list? Let us know!

There has not been a time in recent memory when the U.S. legislative body is putting as much focus on the microelectronics industries. One bill, the CHIPS Act, was signed into law last year. A new bill introduced this year seeks to allocate funding for printed circuit board fabrication. In this exclusive interview, our team spoke with Travis Kelly, CEO of Isola Group and president of the Printed Circuit Board Association, and U.S. Rep. Blake Moore (R-Utah), who has co-sponsored the bill now before the House. Travis and Blake both express optimism about onshoring domestic production, but the realities of the legislative calendar may pose some risks.
