Reading time ( words)

Stratham, N.H. -- Vitronics Soltec's Technology Group will host a series of instructional seminars throughout North America this year.

Topics will include the critical elements of the soldering processes of wave, reflow and selective operations. Entitled "Make The Right Connection in Lead-Free Soldering," this seminar will cover key electronics manufacturing issues such as identifying market trends, lead-free soldering, selective soldering, building a more efficient process, optimizing reflow processes, and many others.In the new reality of tighter budgets and narrower margins, electronics manufacturers must remain profitable to survive. Increasing process efficiency can cut costs and widen narrow profit margins. Based on the company's recent series of highly successful Advanced Technology Tours in Europe and Asia, this year's program will illustrate the impact various soldering technologies have on cost, process controland yield. The program has been developed by Vitronics Soltec's Technology Group and outlines methods and procedures proven successful in multiple manufacturing environments, and is free of charge to qualified attendees.As a key feature of the seminar, the Technology Group will introduce attendees to the "5 Steps to Lead-Free" program. This step-by-step guide developed by the Vitronics Soltec Technology Group and proven successful in multiple production manufacturing environments provides actual, practical implementation recommendations.The Advanced Technology Tour goal is to show attendees how to optimize their soldering processes to cut waste, lower costs, and maintenance, and employ needed "survival skills" to cope with tight margins and tough economic times; i.e,.making their processes more efficient and profitable. Attendees will learn field-tested methods and production-proven techniques. Ample time will be allocated for networking, question and answer sessions, and discussion. The seminars are co-chaired by Denis Barbini, Ph.D., advanced technologies manager, and Marc Dalderup, vice president of North American sales.Vitronics Soltec's Technology Group is comprised of more than a dozen process specialists employed globally throughout Vitronics Soltec facilities in the Netherlands, USA, Germany and Singapore. Their common goal is to study and define processes, and publish their findings on selected technology topics. The Technology Group has a well-equipped and unique advanced research laboratory, incorporating metallurgical, environmental testing, and analytical capabilities. Additionally, two fully operational SMD lines give this Group the ability to conduct in-depth testing in an actual production environment. The seminar schedule is as follows:
