AIM to Participate in SMTA International


Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder will highlight their new M8 No Clean Solder Paste along with their full line of solder assembly materials at the SMTA International 2015 trade show, scheduled to take place on September 27th – October 1st, 2015 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.  AIM will be located in booth 413.

An evolution of the highly successful NC258 platform, M8 is designed for the most demanding high-density electronic assemblies. Developed in combination with T4 and finer mesh tin/lead and lead-free alloy powders, M8 provides stable transfer efficiencies required for today’s challenging applications. A novel activator system provides powerful, durable wetting action accommodating a wide range of profiling processes and techniques. M8 eliminates HiP defects on BGA and reduces voiding on QFN/BTC components while producing bright shiny solder joints, leaving minimal, high purity residues engineered to be safely left in place.

Additionally, AIM’s Technical Marketing Manager, Timothy O’Neill and Research and Development Manager, Mehran Maalekian Ph.D., will be presenting at SMTA International’s technical conference. O’Neill’s presentation, Evolution of the Performance and Reliability Requirements of Soldering Fluxes, explores the constant evolution of flux chemistries due to the miniaturization and proliferation of electronics.  In Maalekian’s presentation, The Effect of Bi Content on Properties of Low Silver SAC Solders, thermal behavior (melting and solidification), wetting and spreading performance, as well as tensile and hardness properties of various alloys are compared and a promising lead-free solder alloy is recommended.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: Cleanliness

03/01/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
John Ling’s invitation to the fifth in EIPC’s series of Technical Snapshots was as droll as we have come to expect: “In these confined days of lockdown, and exhortations to stay at home and only go out for exercise, this only exercises the natural inclination to hop on a ‘plane to some sunshine.’ Although not the same as Factor 20, one of our webinars gives a high degree of protection from harmful ignorance, and you do not have to go out in the cold.”

Tech 2 Tech: KYZEN’s Short Technical Sessions a Big Hit

01/20/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson gets an update from Tom Forsythe on KYZEN’s Tech 2 Tech sessions. These brief 15-minute sessions were set up during the pandemic by KYZEN for customers, prospects, and new engineers around cleaning, and have since found traction with their manufacturers, reps and distributors.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine—Continuous Improvement: As Simple as X = Xc – 1

01/04/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
X=Xc – 1 is a conceptual equation for continuous improvement. You define X and work to reduce it by a factor of 1. This could be one work hour, one process step, one day less in a cycle, and so on. We recently met with Dr. Ron Lasky to discuss the concept of X=Xc – 1 and get his advice on generating enthusiasm among readers and the next generation about continuous improvement. As this discussion illustrates, many process improvements are small in scale, not yearlong, major efforts.
