AIM to Present at SMTA International Expo

Cranston, Rhode Island USA – AIM Solder, a leading global manufacturer of solder assembly materials for the electronics industry, is pleased to announce their participation in the upcoming SMTA International Expo taking place from October 31st to November 3rd at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Jen Fijalkowski, AIM's Technical Marketing Engineer, will be presenting "Addressing Low-Temperature Rework Concerns".

Low-temperature, high-bismuth solders are being implemented to minimize component warpage, reduce energy consumption and lower material costs. Flux cored wire is typically used in rework and post-assembly processes; however, high-bismuth alloys are brittle which inhibits their manufacturability in this form. This study details how equipment, techniques and soldering materials available today may affect the quality of a joint initially assembled with low-temperature solder paste.

AIM Solder will also be highlighting their new ultra-low-voiding, no clean paste, V9. Formulated to solve one of the industry’s most difficult challenges, V9 has proven to reduce voiding to as low as 1% on BGA and <5% on BTC components while exhibiting stable print performance on fine feature devices over 12 hours. V9 post-process residue is easily probed and possesses high SIR values required for high reliability applications.
