P. KAY Metal has announced the issuance of a new expansion of its MS2 solder dross elimination patent in Mexico (patent #321779). This is the second patent covering solder dross elimination and solder recovery granted for this product and even more important, process in Mexico. The use of liquid dross recovery materials in an off-line process has been added to the claims which now exactly duplicate the previously granted U.S. patent.
Jay Hardin, product manager for the MS2 product line, stated, “Using MS2 in an offline controlled process allows our customers to recover up to 90% of the useable solder directly from the solder dross into useable solder bars and to do it off line away from the wave soldering process.”

With the four-wire and four-terminal flying probe test method, voids in the holes formed in the PCB due to process differences, thin copper, and poor conduction due to residual adhesive after laser drilling of the HDI board can be detected, and the circuit board guide can be solved. With the development of multilayer, high-density PCB layout, four-wire four-terminal flying probe testing will play an increasingly important role.

In the ultracompetitive electronics manufacturing space, companies that don’t continually evolve and invest in new technologies run the risk of being left behind. At the recent EIPC summer conference, many next-generation processes and technologies were discussed and even put on display.
Every so often, a new product comes around that promises to be a game changer and LiloTree has one of those products. Not only is it cyanide-free, it has the potential to save 40% on your entire ENIG process and is proving to be far more stable than traditional ENIG products.
