Alpha Assembly Solutions will feature material set combinations to include paste, tacky flux, cored wire and wave soldering flux that are tested with one another to achieve greater reliability at the SMTA Austin Expo to be held October 11th at the Norris Conference Center in Austin, Texas.
“Assembly manufacturers will tell you there is a great deal of trial and error that goes into finding the right material set for a specific electronics assembly process,” said Robert Wallace, Regional Marketing Manager for Alpha Assembly Solutions - Americas, part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses. “Alpha has done the testing for you and can demonstrate which material pairings will produce the greatest reliability, which as we know is critical to our business.”
Alpha will also showcase their vast product portfolio of innovative materials and solutions for the electronics assembly industry with particular focus on ALPHA® Paste & Preforms for optimized process solutions and ALPHA® Wave Solder Alloy & Chemistries and Cored Solder Wire for optimal performance. ALPHA® Recycling Services will also be highlighted at the show this year to help customers realize their options for responsibly disposing of solder dross and waste.
