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, Mr. 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.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
