ACE to Conduct Advanced Selective Soldering Workshop


Reading time ( words)

ACE Production Technologies Inc., a leading supplier of selective soldering systems, is pleased to announce that registration is now open and seats are available for its upcoming August 16-17 advanced selective soldering workshop.

The advanced selective soldering workshop will be held August 16-17, 2016 at ACE's Spokane Valley, Washington facility. This in-depth 2-day workshop focuses on providing a detailed understanding of printed circuit board construction such as copper layers, barrel plating and porosity. The interaction between the printed circuit board and the selective soldering process as well as the heat flow characteristics within thermally challenging multilayer boards will be defined. The classroom portion of this advanced workshop is instructed by renowned fabrication expert Stan Bentley of DIVSYS International with the hands-on segments taught by the ACE application staff. Optionally, attendees can attend a third day for additional hands-on training and are invited to bring their own circuit boards for detailed application analysis.

More than 195 attendees from over 100 different companies have participated in previous ACE selective soldering workshops including a 2-day introductory workshop and a 2-day advanced workshop. These highly successful workshops feature open communications and a continuous information steam that has helped attendees advance their skills, techniques and methods involved with the selective soldering process.

This workshop features a combination of classroom and hands-on curriculum that significantly compresses the learning curve for those new to the selective soldering process or those who wish to advance their in-depth knowledge. For more information about this selective soldering workshop, or to register for the workshop, contact Rae Ann Miller at rmiller@ace-protech.com or call 509-924-4898, Ext. 102.

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.
