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.

PCB Pad Repair Techniques

01/08/2018 | Bob Wettermann, BEST Inc.
There are a variety of reasons behind pads getting "lifted" completely or partially from the laminate of a PCB. Per the just revised IPC-A-610 Revision G, a defect for all three classes occurs when the land is lifted up one or more pad thicknesses. Lifted pads can occur when a device has been improperly removed or there is a manufacturing defect in the board construction. In any case, as with any repair, the ultimate decision on the ability to repair the pad lies with the customer.

Top 10 Most-Read SMT007 Columns of 2017

01/02/2018 | I-Connect007
Another year is over in the SMT industry. 2017 saw a myriad of hot topics, including Industry 4.0, the millennials’ entry into the manufacturing space, and alternative solder materials, to name a few. Without further ado, here are the Top 10 columns from SMT007 over the past year.

The Effect of Area Shape and Area Ratio on Solder Paste Printing Performance

12/28/2017 | Stefan Härter, et al.
The ongoing miniaturization trend in the SMT production induces new challenges and highly integrated systems. In passive components, the miniaturization leads to the introduction of the EIA size 01005 or smaller. Despite numerous publications in this field already addressing the printing of such devices, a defined wholly optimized process remains unsolved and inspires further novel research ideas on this topic.
