ACE, Kintner Equipment Collaborate on PCB Mfg Workshop

Reading time ( words)

Selective soldering systems supplier ACE Production Technologies Inc. will partner with Kintner Equipment Corp. to conduct a PCB manufacturing processes workshop, scheduled to take place April 21-23, 2015, at Kintner Equipment's facility in Endicott, New York.

Alan Cable, President of ACE Production Technologies, will discuss the necessary skills, techniques and methods involved with selective soldering processes and will demonstrate the latest innovations and developments in selective soldering technology. No-clean processing, process optimization and the parameters that the selective soldering machine can adjust for will be discussed. Demonstrations will include the latest developments in graphics-based software, automatic fiducial correction and board warpage compensation.

Kintner Equipment is looking forward to hosting what promises to be one of the most informative technical forums and workshops in the Northeast for manufacturing, process and quality engineers. Factory representatives from nine of the industry’s leading equipment suppliers will be conducting live equipment demonstrations and presenting insight on the equipment technologies and automated assembly processes that will be used to streamline electronic manufacturing processes for the future.

The workshop will benefit attendees by showing them how to identify and resolve process related issues, eliminate production bottlenecks and optimize production line yields to improve profitability. Featured topics will include: automated optical inspection and solder paste inspection, bottom-side selective soldering, topside robotic point-to-point soldering, high-speed and flexible SMT and odd-form placement, board level and BGA rework and repair, batch and in-line aqueous cleaning, solder paste printing and dispensing, conformal coating, precision dispensing of underfill, adhesives and solder paste, and on-site nitrogen gas generation.
