AIM Solder, a leading global manufacturer of solder assembly materials for the electronics industry, is pleased to announce their participation in the upcoming SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum taking place on October 25 – 26, 2023, at Expo Guadalajara in Jalisco, Mexico. In addition to highlighting their newest halogen-free no clean solder paste, H10, AIM Solder’s International Technical Applications Director, Carlos Tafoya, will be presenting on Low Temperature Rework.
Carlos oversees the AIM Global Technical Applications group that supports customers worldwide. He joined AIM in 2005 after more than 20 years of experience in the electronics assembly manufacturing industry. The abstract for his Low Temperature Rework Presentation is as follows:
Implementation of low temperature solders has been a subject of considerable interest for many consumer electronics manufactures. Low temperature solders represent a significant material and process cost advantage over traditional silver bearing and low silver alloys. Bismuth containing alloys enables low melting temperatures, therefore, if the mission profile of an assembly tolerates the limitations of bismuth containing low temperature solders, implementation is favorable. This presentation will detail the material properties and rework considerations of using a eutectic tin-bismuth solid wire and SAC305 flux cored wire in a rework setting.
At the expo portion of the event, attendees can learn how H10 offers exceptional fine feature printing, improved electrochemical reliability, and powerful wetting characteristics that eliminate NWO (HiP) defects while providing improved pad coverage on all surface finishes. H10 solder paste is capable of transfer efficiency >90% on area ratios of 0.50 and a stencil life >8 hours. It also reduces voiding on BGA, BTC and LGA and offers enhanced electrochemical reliability on all low stand-off devices. Fit for automotive, LED and aerospace assemblies, H10 no clean solder paste is robust, stable, and easy to implement.
