Stratham, N.H. — Vitronics Soltec's 18-city North American Technology Tour, "Make the Right Connection in Lead-free Soldering" successfully concluded after hosting more than 650 attendees representing 330 companies. The seminar was based on Vitronics Soltec's highly successful, groundbreaking "5 Steps to Lead Free Production" program presented throughout Europe, Asia and North America. This program leads the engineer through a series of experiments, case studies, illustrations and logistics that require the proper infrastructure before a company can make the "jump" to lead-free. The afternoon presentations provided a hands-on understanding of how lead-free will impact reflow, wave and selective soldering processes by guiding the engineer though the pitfalls and triumphs experienced by actual lead-free users.Vitronics Soltec's Technology group developed the seminar program to provide its customer base with the necessary tools needed to successfully implement lead-free soldering. The combination of VS's R&D programs and collaborations with current lead free users allow us to provide process solutions in conjunction with state-of-the-art equipment compatible and flexible for lead-free soldering.Vitronics Soltec is a leading global supplier of reflow, wave and selective soldering equipment and technology for electronics manufacturing.
