  • Low-Melting Point Materials Development: Novel High Reliability Low-Temperature Solder Alloys by Dr. Ning-Cheng Lee
  • Novel High-Reliability Low-Temperature Solder Alloys by Dr. Lee
  • Process and Materials Interaction Investigation: Test Methods for Electrochemical Consistency in PCB Assembly Processes – Revisited by Brook Sandy-Smith, Technical Support Engineer for PCB Assembly Materials
  • Solder Paste Rheology, Performance and Aging: How Worst-Case Shipping Scenarios Affect Solder-Paste Performance: Part 2 by Brook Sandy-Smith
  • Reflow Profiling for Next-Generation Pb-free Solder Alloys by Brook Sandy-Smith
  • Inspection Applications: Practical Implementation of Assembly Process for Low-Melting Point Solder Pastes by Brook Sandy-Smith
  • Solder Printing: Impact of Stencil Quality & Technology on Solder Paste Printing Performance by Jonas Sjoberg, Technical Manager
  • Reliability of Intermetallics in Various Interconnects: Copper-Tin Intermetallics: Their Importance, Growth Rate, and Nature by Dr. Ron Lasky, Senior Technologist

Indium Corporation experts will also serve as chairs for three technical sessions, including:

  • Solder Paste Development to Overcome Component Challenges: Adam Murling, Technical Support Engineer, Global Accounts
  • Low-Temperature Solder Paste and its Process Development – iNEMI Project: Anny Zhang, Regional Sales Manager, Northwestern USA, and Western Canada
  • Properties and Behavior of Solders Containing Bismuth: Brook Sandy-Smith

Additionally, Dr. Lee will lead a workshop on Achieving High-Reliability for Lead-Free Solder Joints – Materials Consideration, and Brook Sandy-Smith will host Rising Expectations for “High-Reliability”—a spotlight series panel discussion.

SMTAI is world-class electronics manufacturing conference and exhibition organized by the SMTA — the world's leading user group for surface mount and companion technologies. The conference provides high-quality technical information and networking opportunities.

Impact of Stencil Foil Type on Solder Paste Transfer Efficiency for Laser-cut SMT Stencils (Part 1)

04/24/2019 | Greg Smith, BlueRing Stencils
As innovation and demand continue to drive miniaturization in electronics, manufacturers face the constant challenge of assembling smaller and smaller components with repeatable processes and high yields. Stencil printing is the first step in the PWB assembly process, and improvements to the SMT stencil can significantly improve yields, especially for more challenging miniaturized products. The primary inputs in the SMT stencil manufacturing process are material, equipment, and processes, and by continuously improving these inputs, the overall print process is improved. The most important material in the process of manufacturing SMT stencils is the foil itself. This article investigates foil types used with the goal of determining which foils provide the best print performance.
