Europlacer, multiple award-winning designer and manufacturer of best-in-class, flexible SMT pick-and-place equipment for the global electronics assembly industry, has appointed Dan Trinka and 4Tech Electronics as the newest on its growing list of premium manufacturer’ representatives. In addition to serving as an enhanced resource for Europlacer customers throughout Michigan and Ohio, 4Tech will support Europlacer’s growth trajectory while the company continues gaining market share because more assembly experts are choosing Europlacer pick-and-place equipment, SMD Component Storage Towers and fully integrated Stock Management software to optimize their production processes.

At Europlacer, we too have set a high standard when it comes to industry-leading equipment quality and exceptional customer service, so this a partnership that is sure to work well for us, 4Tech and potential customers in that region.” Mr. Merow continued, “I’m certain Dan and his team will strengthen our efforts there, as we continue our significant market share gains.  4Tech will provide this territory with both an enhanced understanding of our comprehensive set of tools for serving high-mix assembly businesses and unique Europlacer feature sets that enable strong, competitive advantages for users.”

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.
