BEST Releases Sustainable Version of J-STD-001 Soldering Kit


Reading time ( words)

BEST Inc. has released an updated version of the Revision "F" IPC-JSTD-001 training kit. This kit is used in IPC training classes so associates can get certified to the standard. It features the boards and components needed for classroom practice and learning-all in a neatly-packaged box.

Not only does this kit meet the requirements for the training but the kit box itself has a purpose after the class is done. It can be used to store components or materials in the associates work area. BEST has even developed a sustainability program for larger orders where the kit containers can be re-used by refilling them thereby saving the plastic containers from the landfill.

Alex Conley, product manager for training services, says, "Customers really like the fact that the components are so neatly packaged and present themselves well in the classroom."

Products can be purchased directly, at Amazon, or at its company store at soldertools.net.

Solder Printing Process Inputs Impacting Distribution of Paste Volume

12/14/2017 | Marco Lajoie and Alain Breton, C-MAC Microelectronics
The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.

Improving Solder Paste Printing

12/12/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
Of the three elements involved in the solder paste printing process—stencil, solder paste, and printer—the stencil is considered one of the major factors affecting the transfer efficiency, accuracy, and consistency, of solder pastes into the pads, especially with the continuing trend towards miniaturization.

Equipment Matters in Solder Paste Printing

12/06/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
The solder paste printing process has always been considered a major contributor to yield loss. According to many studies, solder paste printing accounts for up to 70% of all PCB assembly defects. For the December issue of SMT Magazine, we interviewed experts in the solder paste printing process to learn more about the key issues leading to this huge percentage of defects, and the technology developments that are addressing these challenges and improving yields in the process.
