ACE Production Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of selective soldering systems, lead tinning systems and lead tinning services, is pleased to announce that it will conduct a one of a kind solderability testing and component lead tinning workshop. This much anticipated workshop will be held February 23-24, 2016 at ACE’s Spokane Valley, Washington facility and registration is now open and seats are available.
Removal of gold plating, replacing RoHS component finish with tin-lead, refurbishing of legacy components and tin whisker mitigation are the main drivers behind the increasing awareness of component re-tinning using the hot solder dip method. It is highly recommended the re-tinning process be carried out using dual dynamic solder pots, controlled flux application and defined process control in accordance with GEIA-STD-0006 to enhance component solderability.
The workshop will feature demonstrations of the hot solder dip method of both through-hole and SMT components featuring the ACE LTS200 and LTS300 lead tinning systems. ACE has a complete library of fixtures for lead tinning of virtually all through-hole and SMT components.
Also demonstrated during the workshop will be the new ACE STS-202 solderability tester that is capable of performing solderability testing to determine the solderability of component leads and terminations prior to being joined in a soldering operation. The system utilizes the proven dip and look test method in conformance with all IPC, ANSI and MIL standards including J-STD-002, MIL-STD-883 Method 2003 and MIL-STD-202 Method 208.
The workshop will feature a combination of classroom curriculum and hands-on demonstrations that clarify the requirements of the new J-STD-001 Rev F and GEIA-STD-0006 standards, as well as those who wish to advance their in-depth knowledge of the lead tinning process. For more information about this solderability and lead tinning workshop, or to register for the workshop, contact Rae Ann Miller at email@example.com or call 509-924-4898, Ext. 102.
