CT Chapter Technical Meeting

 The SMTA Connecticut cordially invites you to attend

a Chapter Technical Meeting

 

Key Technical Challenges and Process Improvements

For An Electronics Manufacturing Provider

Benchmark Electronics Inc.

New Hampshire Division

 

Robert Farrell

 

This study summarizes key technical challenges and process improvements for an Electronics Manufacturing Provider.  The topics encompass SnPb, Hybrid (Pb-free BGA on a SnPb board), and Pb-free assembly for IPC Class 2 and 3 assemblies using No Clean and Water Soluble chemistries.   Topics include the visual assessment of solder paste reflow for quality control and paste selection, assessment of X-Ray technology to count taped and reeled SMT parts, cleaning QFNs and other low standoff devices, cleaning no clean solder paste residues, assessment of a stencil design on a fine pitch assembly designed to eliminate a post screen print needle dispense of solder paste, BGA separation during 2nd pass reflow, eliminating unacceptable tarnish of silver boards during board bake, process improvements for hand soldering for assembly and rework, and the rework of BGAs and QFNS on high thermal mass boards with temperature sensitive optical fiber.    Each topic will include a brief statement of the issue, solutions considered, applicable data, and assessment of the solution implemented.

 

When: Thursday, July 21, 2016 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Where: Platform Specialty Products Corporation; Harold Leever Building; Ruth Ann Leever Training Center
245 Freight Street
Waterbury, CT  06702
