ACE to Conduct Introductory Selective Soldering Workshop


Reading time ( words)

ACE Production Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of selective soldering systems, is pleased to announce that registration is now open and seats are still available for its upcoming February 2-3 introductory selective soldering workshop. 

The introductory workshop will be held February 2-3, 2016 at ACE’s Spokane Valley, WA facility.  This comprehensive 2-day workshop is designed to educate and enhance an attendee’s working knowledge of the overall selective soldering process.  Topics include component limitations, clearance restrictions, flux chemistries, no-clean processing, and solder joint reliability issues, as well as problem solving and process optimization.  The classroom portion will be conducted by well-known process expert Bob Klenke of ITM Consulting while the hands-on portion will be taught by the expert staff members in the ACE application lab.  Optionally, attendees can attend a third day for additional hands-on training and are invited to bring their own circuit boards for detailed application analysis.

More than 195 attendees from over 100 companies have participated in previous ACE selective soldering workshops including a 2-day introductory workshop and a 2-day advanced workshop.  These highly successful workshops feature open communications and a continuous information steam that has helped attendees advance their skills, techniques and methods involved with the selective soldering process.

This workshop features a combination of classroom and hands-on curriculum that significantly compresses the learning curve for those new to the selective soldering process or those who wish to advance their in-depth knowledge.  For more information about this selective soldering workshop, or to register for the workshop, contact Rae Ann Miller at rmiller@ace-protech.com or call 509-924-4898, Ext. 102.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
