Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, hosted a customer seminar in partnership with Interkont Berger GmbH, its distributor for Slovenia, in Liubliana, on May 31, 2016.

The seminar which was attended by 34 people from 12 customers focused on the topic of reliability. The event began with an introduction from Interkont's Sales Manager for Slovenia Matjaz Selijak. This was followed by Alpha's Sales & Technical Support Manager for Central Europe, Corné Hoppenbrouwers, who discussed the importance of reliability in electronic assemblies with particular emphasis on how Alpha’s extensive product range provides innovative solutions for reliability issues.

Of Alpha's product range, ALPHA Exactalloy Preforms provide an excellent assembly solution, by both increasing the reliability and the conductivity of solder joints. Alpha's EM Sales Development Manager, Daniele Perico presented on how preforms can be used in a number of different applications and industries to increase reliability and reduce voids.

ALPHA Exactalloy Preforms are used to precisely increase the solder volume in solder joints. The preforms increase the strength of the solder joints enabling them to withstand harsh operating conditions and improve conductivity. They also eliminate the need for wave soldering.

Alpha and Interkont have enjoyed a successful partnership for many years with Interkont supplying Alpha products across Eastern Europe.
