Reading time ( words)

Alpha presented its advanced technical solutions at the recent customer seminar hosted by Kosme, an Italian distributor partner of Alpha. The event, held on the 7th of November at Kosme’s Padua site, was attended by over 40 people from 22 different companies across a varied range of professions, such as designers, production managers, process engineers, quality engineers and purchasing agents.

The topics and technical solutions covered at the event were a direct result of customer feedback and were aimed to educate participants on how to optimize screen printing & stencil design, how to increase solder strength & reliability and to explain the issue of ionic contamination.

Alpha’s Donato Casati and Kosme’s Ing Zambelli both agreed the seminar was a great success. “The Alpha Academy Seminar provided customers up-to-date technical information on a variety of topics to help assist them in choosing the correct solution and products for their soldering applications,” Casati commented.

The event included presentations by Alpha’s Donato Casati and Sandro Crivellaro who discussed a variety of topics including how to achieve robust and reliable solder joints by using ALPHA® Exactalloy® Tape and Reel Preforms, the latest on low silver alloys and information on total ionic contamination. Part of the course material was prepared by Alpha’s Global Technical Expert, Gilbert Renaud, one of the world’s leading experts on soldering and printed circuit boards.

Additional material was presented by guest speakers from Preventlab srl, a PCB Manufacturer that provides expert lab analysis and Datapaq, a manufacturer of temperature profiling systems, data loggers and temperature analysis software for industrial heating processes.

Alpha and Kosme have enjoyed a successful partnership for many years, with Kosme distributing Alpha products across Italy. Kosme also regularly hosts workshops and training seminars for its customers to provide up to date information on the latest innovations in soldering technology.
