AIM Solder, a leading global manufacturer of solder assembly materials for the electronics industry, is pleased to announce their participation at the 2016 SMTA Intermountain (Boise) Expo and Tech Forum, scheduled to take place April 7th, 2016 at the Boise State University located in Boise, Idaho. AIM will highlight their revolutionary M8 solder paste along with their full line of solder assembly materials. In addition, AIM’s Technical Marketing Manager, Timothy O’Neill will present his white paper, “A Practical Guide to Optimizing Solder Paste Performance for Ultra-Fine Feature Printing” at the expo from 9:15am – 10:00am.
M8 No Clean Solder Paste has been formulated to address the most demanding requirements confronting today’s SMT assembly market. M8 is proven to improve production yields and product quality, whether printing 0.50 area ratios or eliminating voiding on QFN and LED packages. M8's post-reflow residue passes all IPC, BONO and tough changing environment test specifications, making it the ideal choice for automotive and high performance/high reliability applications. M8’s robust characteristics and stable performance improves every facet of the PCB assembly process.
O’Neill’s presentation will provide a detailed explanation of how to optimize solder paste performance from receiving to reflow. O’Neill will cover various topics such as paste handling, stencil design, printer setup and common defects. His presentation incorporates theory with best practice to inform the process engineer of the how, what and why of solder paste use.
Additionally, AIM will highlight its liquid fluxes, tin/lead and lead-free alloys, including SN100C. To discover all of AIM’s products and services, including lead-free and halogen-free solder, visit the company at the SMTA Dallas Expo & Tech Forum or click here for more information.
