Alpha Unveils Solder Paste Innovation for Ultra-fine Feature Printing


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions is introducing its newest solder paste innovation for ultra-fine feature printing and reflow applications.

ALPHA OM-347 is an ultra-cleanable, no-clean, lead-free, zero-halogen solder paste material that can print and reflow Type 4 and Type 5 powder to meet market segments requiring ultra-fine feature applications. 

"ALPHA OM-347 is one of the first solder paste formulas introduced specifically designed as an ultra-cleanable, no-clean material," said Traian Cucu, Global Product Manager for Solder Paste at Alpha Assembly Solutions, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions Group of Businesses. "It has an outstanding reflow process window that delivers good soldering on CuOSP with excellent coalescence on a broad range of deposit sizes and shows excellent random solder ball and mid-chip solder ball resistance."

This new soldering material from Alpha demonstrates excellent print volume deposit repeatability, thereby providing value to customers by reducing defects that can derive from print process variability.

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.
