AIM to Participate at SMT – Info International Conference in Czech Republic


Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder will present two of its most recent technical papers at the SMT – Info International Conference, scheduled to take place on October 17–18, 2017, in Brno, Czech Republic.

Petr Bettinec will present the paper "The Evolution and Development of High Reliability Lead Free Alloys", which details the limitations of SAC305, the de facto standard for lead-free electronics soldering, and explores the effects of nickel, bismuth and other micro-alloy dopants on mechanical and soldering performance. New solder alloys with relatively low melting temperatures (compared to SAC305) and improved thermal and mechanical performance which retain the positive characteristics of SAC alloys are discussed.

Ales Sedlak's presentation, titled "Assessing the Effectiveness of I/O Stencil Aperture Modifications on BTC Void Reduction," will assess the impact of stencil modifications that can be easily deployed in an effort to consistently and repeatedly reduce void formation on BTC style devices. The paper will detail a study using a common SAC305 no-clean solder paste with a novel stencil design which varies solder paste deposit volume and location and will evaluate the impact on ground pad void characteristics.

Additionally, AIM will highlight its full line of advanced solder materials, including its newly developed high reliability alloys, REL61 and REL22, as well as AIM solder paste, liquid flux and related chemistries. AIM REL61 and REL22 alloys address some of the most challenging issues with today’s common lead-free alloys, specifically soldering performance, cost, durability and tin whisker formation.

CFX: The Next Step Toward the Future of Factories

05/07/2018 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
For the past two to three years, almost every exhibitor in almost every trade show focused on the electronics manufacturing industry has an "Industry 4.0 Compatible" sign in their booth. As of today, the best question to ask is, "Compatible with what?" There has really been no standard yet developed toward this goal, and Industry 4.0 has been just a buzz word.
