Alpha to Feature Recycling Services and Low Void Technology at SMTA Orange County Expo


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic assembly materials, will feature its Void Reduction Solutions technologies and solder debris recycling capabilities at the Orange County Expo and Tech Forum taking place on Thursday, November 1 at The Grand in Long Beach, California.

At the Expo, Alpha will be promoting its Void Reduction Solutions (VRS) program, a program designed to help manufacturers meet the demaning void requirements of their customers.  Alpha’s latest ultra-low voiding paste, ALPHA® OM-358 is the latest addition to the VRS tool kit which includes a variety of products and processing solutions. 

ALPHA® OM-358 was engineered for high reliability applications, and well suited for automotive, aerospace, LED, and medical applications. “This paste achieves less than ten percent voiding on all types of bottom terminated components.”, said Robert Wallace, Regional Marketing Manager for the Americas.  “With excellent electrical and thermal performance, ALPHA® OM-358 increases production efficiency and reduces the amount of rework, a significant beneift for our customers.“.

Alpha will also feature its Recycling Services program.  As part of Alpha’s sustainability initiatives, Alpha recycles scrap solder paste, debris, dross, and other tin-bearing materials from manufacturers throughout North America, and recently expanded its recycling capabilities throughout Mexico, having received an export license from SEMARNAT, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Mexico, to handle and transport nationalized scap material.  “The recycling market continues to expand throughout the Americas,“ said Mitch Holtzer, Director of Reclaim Business, “Our goal is to make the recycling process simple for manufacturers, allowing recycling to become a realistic and attractive alternative to sending materials to land-fills.“.

Tips to Improve Soldering Tip Life and Reduce Cost

10/10/2018 | Thermaltronics
Whether in production, or repair and rework, the cost of soldering iron tips can be easily overlooked, but with today’s requirement for higher temperatures in lead-free solder applications, the consumption of tips has dramatically increased. This fact, combined with changes in tip design to meet the higher thermal load requirements, has also resulted in escalating tip costs, making tip care a high priority.
