Alpha Assembly Solutions to Feature Innovative Solder Technologies and Recycling Services at SMTA Silicon Valley


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will feature its latest innovations in interconnect technologies and its solder debris recycling capabilities at the SMTA Silicon Valley Conference and Expo taking place on November 28, 2018 at the Bestronics Box Build Facility, San Jose, California.Alpha will be co-exhibiting at this event with its distributor partner, Krayden Inc.

Alpha will be promoting its newest solutions for void reduction and low temperature soldering, featuring the recently launched ALPHA OM-358 ultra-low voiding paste and the high performing, low temperature paste, ALPHA OM-550.ALPHA OM-358 provides excellent electrical and thermal performance, increasing production efficiency and reducing the amount of rework. “With less than ten percent voiding on bottom terminated components, this paste is well suited to meet the demands of automotive, aerospace, LED, and medical customers who have high reliability requirements,“ said Robert Wallace, Regional Marketing Manager for the Americas.

For low temperature soldering, Alpha will highlight the recently published,The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to...™ Low Temperature Soldering which contains technical articles written by several low-temperature solder experts from Alpha and its ALPHA® OM-550 high performing low temperature paste.ALPHA OM-550 is recongnized in the industry as providing excellent mechanical reliability, drop shock performance, and voiding on a variety of package types, as well as, efficiencies in both energy and costs.

Alpha‘s Recycling Services program will provide information on processes for and value of recycling paste scrap, dross, and debris.As North America’s largest solder recycler, Alpha takes pride in having the safest, most efficient, environmentally-compliant recycling solution that sends no materials to landfills.The Reclaim and Recycling Services are an important component of Alpha’s Sustainability programs.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 1)

07/16/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.

Surface Treatment Enabling Low-Temperature Soldering to Aluminum

07/15/2019 | Divyakant Kadiwala, Averatek Corporation
An increasingly popular method to meet the need for lower cost circuitry is the use of aluminum on polyester (Al-PET) substrates. This material is gaining popularity and has found wide use in RFID tags, low-cost LED lighting, and other single-layer circuits. However, both aluminum and PET have their own constraints and require special processing to make finished circuits.

Failures and Reliability in Soldering

07/09/2019 | Michael Gouldsmith and Zen Lee, Thermaltronics
The definition of failure is "the lack of success in doing or achieving something, especially in relation to a particular activity." If the activity is concerning a soldering process, such a failure can have a downstream impact far beyond the actual solder joint. In this regard, it is first necessary to understand what constitutes a good solder joint because appearance is too often deemed a success.
