Nihon Superior Discusses Solder System Innovations

Reading time ( words)

Tetsuro Nishimura, president and CEO of Nihon Superior Co. Ltd, talked to I-Connect007's Stephen Las Marias about the soldering industry landscape and the company's latest innovations in soldering systems. Nihon Superior is celebrating its 50th anniversary next year.

Nishimura also discussed some of the major changes he witnessed over the past decades in the soldering industry, their Soft Solder technology, and why more and more manufacturers are now shifting to low-silver (Low-Ag) or no-silver (No-Ag) solders. He also talked about the challenges the electronics makers continue to face when it comes to lead-free solders, and how they are addressing these issues.

What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
