Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder announces that Karl Seelig, AIM’s Vice President of Technology, will present in the SMTA webtorial “Solder Reflow Fundamentals - Understanding Thermal Profiles and Defect Mitigation.” The webtorial will take place on April 26th and 28th, 2016 from 1:00pm – 2:30pm eastern.

The “Solder Reflow Fundamentals - Understanding Thermal Profiles and Defect Mitigation” webtorial will focus on how the shape of reflow profiles affects various defects and what the SMT engineer should do to eliminate them. Seelig will cover an array of topics throughout the webtorial including recipes and profiles, profile shapes, solder balls, opens, voids, and tombstoning. The webtorial is designed to provide SMT engineers with a better understanding of the reflow process, identifying defects and taking practical troubleshooting steps.

Karl Seelig has over 30 years of industry experience; he has written and presented numerous technical papers on topics including lead-free electronics assembly, no-clean flux technology, assembly and process optimization, inspection, and metallurgical studies.  Mr. Seelig serves as the chairman of the IPC Solder Products Value Council and has been involved in the development of material specifications under IPC. He has also received numerous patents in soldering technology, including four lead-free alloys.

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.
