Alpha's Tim Luke to Present on Reliability at ZESTRON Soldering Workshops in Canada


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, will be participating in the ZESTRON Academy Workshops titled Soldering, Cleaning and Coating taking place in late September in Toronto (September 20th) and Montreal (September 22nd).

Tim Luke of Alpha will be presenting at both workshops on the topic of “Building Reliability In: To Clean or Not to Clean”. The seminar will highlight how chemistry choices play an important role in the functionality and long-term reliability of today’s electronics.

“The move to Pb-free soldering together with increasingly complex electronics has put increased pressure on making the right decisions when it comes to the fluxes and processes used in electronics assembly”, said Tim Luke, Regional Sales Manager for Alpha. “An understanding of Electrochemical Reliability and whether or not to clean or not clean your assemblies for reliability assurance is important and can help customers gain efficiencies without sacrificing quality.”

Participation in the Soldering, Cleaning and Coating Workshops is free.  For more information, visit www.zestron.com or send an inquiry to academy@zestronusa.com.
