Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will host a full day seminar on "Low Temperature Assembly Technology" on May 18, 2017 in Crowne Plaza Hotel in Suzhou, China.

The free seminar from Alpha, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of business, focuses on the current hot topic "Low Temperature Soldering". Topics include "A History and Overview of Low Temperature Solder Alloys", "A New Generation of Low Temperature Solder Alloys (HRL1)", "iNEMI Collaborative Effort on Low Temperature Soldering", "Low Temperature Soldering SMT Experiment" and also the newly coming soon to market "ALPHA OM-550 HRL1 Solder Paste" will also be introduced at the seminar.

"ALPHA OM-550 HRL1 represents the culmination of years of research and development, bringing SAC305-type mechanical and thermal reliability in a low temperature alloy to board level assemblies once thought impossible. ALPHA OM-550 HRL1 meets reliability requirements typical of motherboard and mobile assemblies, and supports our customers’ endeavor to reduce their carbon footprint without impacting performance. We are therefore excited to bring together representatives of our industry who have taken the first step towards reaping the benefits of this game changing class of materials in an event to share and showcase the results of their efforts at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Suzhou," said Phua Teo Leng, Regional Product Manager of Solder Paste. "Alpha has had a long-standing history of being a leader in innovation and sustainability, and OM-550 HRL1 is yet another statement of Alpha's commitment to the industry that we support the transition to a low carbon economy."

Stencil Printing Techniques for Challenging Heterogeneous Assembly Applications

04/16/2018 | Mark Whitmore and Jeff Schake, ASM Assembly Systems
A new generation of near microscopic size SMT chip capacitors has appeared in the market, known as either 0201 or 008004. This article investigates and characterizes the stencil printing process for compatibility with M0201 capacitor assembly. Effects of circuit board quality, stencil thickness, and stencil nano-coating are evaluated against solder paste volume transfer efficiency and raw-volume print distribution.
