ACE to Exhibit Newest Soldering Technologies at SMTA International 2016


Reading time ( words)

ACE Production Technologies, Inc. will exhibit its newest soldering technologies at SMTA International 2016, scheduled to take place September 27-28, 2016 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.

On display will be the KISS-101IL a fully-configured SMEMA compatible selective soldering platform equipped with standard features including automated 2-point fiducial alignment and skew correction system, high-speed Z-axis, heated nitrogen system, witness camera and automated fluxing. The KISS-101IL comes standard with the ACE automated fiducial location and correction system that provides single click fiducial teach capability, seamless fiducial recognition and true automated alignment and skew correction of the printed circuit board.

Other innovative features of the KISS-101IL include the SWAK-OS machine operating software which is a revolutionary graphics-based programming and editing machine control system that features fast program loading and program recall with minimal operator intervention. A major benefit of the SWAK-OS is the integrated board scanning function that automatically captures and saves an image of a printed circuit board to the selective soldering program.

Also on display will be the LTS100 a benchtop lead tinning machine designed for the lead tinning process whereby through-hole component leads, or terminations, can be refurbished for re-qualification in high-reliability applications. The removal of gold plating, replacing of RoHS surface finish with tin-lead finish, refurbishing of legacy components, or tin whisker mitigation are the major reasons to hot solder dip component leads.

Standard features of the LTS100 include two dynamic nitrogen inerted solder pots – one solder pot is dedicated to removal of the original plating while the second solder pot is used to apply the final plating – a dynamic flat wave fluxing station, and a forced hot air preheat station. A pallet holder holds the components in a known position throughout the process and accepts a wide variety of component types including axial, radial, DIPs, SIPs and connectors.

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: How Engineers Can Use SPI Tools for Verification

05/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Koh Young’s Ray Welch and Brent Fischthal detail how engineers can work with SPI tools to verify how small they can go in component size with their solder paste application, and how the company’s SPI equipment is helping not only to verify but also to help drive the development collaboration between solder paste and stencil printer manufacturers, and inspection tools and software.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Indium Metal Forecast—Supply Chain Strong, Demand Continues to Grow

05/05/2020 | Donna Vareha-Walsh, Indium
Indium is a critical metal for the indium-tin oxide (ITO) market and other coating applications. Donna Vareha Walsh—director of sales and global supply chain and trade compliance at Indium Corporation—describes the plentiful global supply of indium and its recycling loop, examines indium’s history of price volatility and the market reactions from the recent Fanya Metal Exchange auction, and provides an overview of indium supply and demand drivers, as well as the impact of recycling efforts.
