SMTA Capital Chapter to Present Tutorial Program at Zentech Manufacturing


Reading time ( words)

The SMTA Capital Chapter will welcome Martin K. Anselm, Ph.D., of the Rochester Institute of Technology, on June 2, 2016. Anselm will present a tutorial on SMT principles at Zentech Manufacturing's facility in Baltimore, Maryland. The tutorial is scheduled from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm and includes lunch and a tour.

As Zentech is an ITAR facility only US citizens can participate in the tour. This tutorial is designed for those involved in printed board design, bare board fabrication, SMT assembly, quality control, materials purchasing, and reliability testing. New this year! Get a $20 EARLY BIRD discount on regular member and non-member registrations if registration is completed by midnight on April 30, 2016. Registration is required for this learning event. 

This training course is aimed at providing an understanding of Surface Mount Technology (SMT) and advanced packaging principles, practice, processes, equipment, and design. This course will also include discussions on process parameters, process characteristics, identifying and correcting defects. Participants will have a strong foundation needed for implementing the SMT process and supporting printed circuit board design and assembly from this course. The knowledge gained from this training will help attendees enhance product development and manufacturing skills. The course material is a subset of a week long course offered for professional development at RIT.

Martin K. Anselm, Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology Department at RIT. He joined the department in the Fall of 2014. Martin has more than twelve years of industrial experience at Universal Instruments in electronics failure analysis and root cause analysis. In his last position at Universal Instruments, he was the Manager of the AREA Consortium where he was responsible for managing a multimillion dollar research budget in electronics assembly materials, process and reliability. At RIT, his research interests include solder joint reliability and advanced manufacturing process development for electronic assemblies. Since 2013, Martin has served on the Board of Directors for the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) and chairs their Training Committee. He has been awarded the honor of Speaker of Distinction by that organization.

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.
