Minneapolis — In a new full-day SMTA workshop, "Implementing Lead-free Assembly at Your Facility," noted process expert and holder of the prestigious SMTA Founder's Award Ronald C. Lasky, Ph.D., Indium Corp. senior technologist, Dartmouth College visiting professor and SMTEditorial Advisory Board Member, will deliver information, experience and knowledge on establishing a lead-free process.
This workshop focuses on the "how to" of implementing lead-free, covering everything from PWB finishes, components, alloys and SMT processes to an actual example of a lead-free process implementation performed by Motorola that has been used to assemble more than 1 million cellular phones. The workshop finishes with a section on establishing a plan for lead-free implementation.
The workshop is intended for managers, process engineers, process technicians and other professionals with an interest in establishing a lead-free assembly process at their factory. It will be held at Asymtek in Carlsbad, Calif., on June 24 and at Reptron Manufacturing in Tampa, Fla., on November 4.
