Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering materials, hosted its third Alpha Academy event of the year on Tuesday 1st December at its partner, Preventlab’s headquarters in Vergiate, Italy. The event which was attended by more than 20 customers was highly successful, building on the positive feedback from the previous Alpha Academy events this year.

Alpha’s Italy & Export Territory Manager, Donato Casati commented, “This year we have held two very successful Alpha Academy events across Italy with our premium distributor partner Barbieri and now at our partner Preventlab srl. All of the seminars have had a technical focus which attendees have found very informative, with useful takeaways. Following on from the success of this year’s seminars, Alpha will continue to hold Alpha Academy seminars in the New Year.”

The event included presentations by Donato Casati on Total Ionic Contamination and PCB Cleanliness and Alpha’s Preform Products. Alpha’s range of preform products targets both assembly and stand-alone applications. Adding a preform to solder paste yields 100% hole fill plus fillet. By optimizing solder volume with preforms, joint strength and reliability are significantly enhanced. Using preforms in certain applications can eliminate the need for wave soldering. ALPHA® Exactalloy Preforms are available in Tape and Reel Packaging enabling process automation using existing pick and place equipment.

The seminar also included presentations on Low Silver Alloys by Sandro Crivellaro, Alpha’s CTS Engineer for Italy and Export Territory, PCB Materials and Finishes by Preventlab, a PCB Manufacturer and a presentation on Thermal Profiles for Reflow Ovens by Datapaq-Fluke, a manufacturer of temperature profiling systems, data loggers and temperature analysis software for industrial heating systems.
