Reading time ( words)

Kurtz Ersa Inc., a leading supplier of electronics production equipment, announced that it was awarded a 2022 Mexico Technology Award in the category of Repair and Rework for its HR 550 XL Hybrid Rework System. The award was announced during a ceremony that took place Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2022 during SMTA Guadalajara in Mexico. With the 2022 Mexico Technology Award, Ersa adds its 20th award to its repertoire.

The hybrid rework system is for all users who place the highest demands on precision and safety when reworking large assemblies. The HR 550 XL features a 1,800 W high-performance hybrid heating element that can be used to desolder and solder SMT components up to the size of 70 x 70 mm. The 6,400 W infrared bottom heater with eight zones ensures homogeneous heating of the entire assembly.

Non-contact and contacting temperature measurement on the component as well as optimized process control guarantee perfect soldering and desoldering processes. Component removal and component placement are carried out via a vacuum pipette that is integrated in the heating head.

The Mexico Technology Awards acknowledge the latest innovations available in Mexico produced by OEM manufacturing equipment and materials suppliers during the last 12 months.

It may be difficult to see any bright spots in the current and recent economic situation. We have all experienced the devastation of the pandemic, supply chain issues, and most recently, inflation. However, as a senior technologist for an international materials supplier (Indium Corporation) and a professor of engineering at an Ivy League research university (Dartmouth College), I offer these four silver linings for those of us in the electronics industry.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.
