Alpha Assembly Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, will debut material set combinations to include paste, tacky flux, cored wire and wave soldering flux that are tested with one another to achieve greater reliability.
“Assembly manufacturers will tell you there is a great deal of trial and error that goes into finding the right material set for a specific electronics assembly process,” said Robert Wallace, Regional Marketing Manager for Alpha – Americas. “Alpha has done the testing for you and can demonstrate which material pairings will produce the greatest reliability, which as we know is critical to our business.”
In addition, Alpha will be presenting two technical presentations during IPC APEX this year:
Effect of Alloy and Flux System on High Reliability Automotive Applications
Presented by Mitch Holtzer · Tuesday, March 15th/1:30PM – 3:00PM
Divergence in Test Results Using IPC Standards SIR and Ionic Contamination Measurements
Presented by Karen Tellefsen · Wednesday, March 16th/1:30PM – 3:00PM
Located at Booth #2500, Alpha will showcase their innovative materials and solutions for the electronics assembly industry with particular focus on ALPHA® Solder Paste & Preforms for Optimized Process Solutions and ALPHA® Wave Solder Alloy & Chemistries and Cored Solder Wire for Optimal Performance. ALPHA® Recycling Services will also be highlighted at the show this year to help customers realize their options for responsibly disposing of solder dross and waste.
To receive information on successful material set combinations, be sure to visit Alpha during APEX at Booth #2500. More on Alpha’s unique process technology and Reclaim Services can be found on their website.
