BTU International's Fred Dimock will present the SMTA webtorial entitled, "Solder Reflow Fundamentals Understanding Thermal Profiles and Defect Mitigation." The webtorial is scheduled to take place April 26-28, 2016.

This class is an extension of "Solder Reflow Fundamentals – Understanding and Obtaining Profiles." It focuses on how the shape of reflow profiles affects various defects and what the SMT engineer/technician can do to eliminate them. During two 90-minute sessions, Dimock will discuss how the shape of reflow profiles affects various defects and what the SMT engineer/technician can do to eliminate them.

The course is designed for the SMT engineers/technicians that want a better understanding of the reflow process, identifies defects, and gives practical troubleshooting steps. This was a high rated workshop from SMTAI that you can attend right from your desk.

"It’s all about education because 98–99% of customers are used to the high cost of delivered gases, where we can separate it on-site with their own equipment, and the payback is typically under a year."
