Robotic reliability in electronics manufacturing at SMTA Symposium

Weller Tools is co-hosting a technical symposium with industry partners, Indium and MicroCare at the Atlanta Tech Park in Peachtree Corners, GA on 12th September, 2019 during SMTA Atlanta. Scheduled to take place from 8:00am-1:00pm, the focus of the half-day reliability event is to gather electronics industry leaders to deliver presentations in the areas of their expertise.

Bubba Powers, Manager, Technical Services for Weller Professional Tools - North America, will discuss the Reliability of Robotics for Electronics Manufacturing, which gives an overview of the process of automation in the soldering workplace, and discusses what factors are critical for high reliability electronics in both manual and automated manufacturing environments.

Also presenting at the SMTA-sponsored symposium will be Indium Corporation’s Kim Flanagan, Technical Support Engineer. Her presentation, Impact of Exposing No-Clean Solder Paste Flux Residues to a Water-Wash Cleaning Cycle, will review a series of Surface Insulation Resistance (SIR) tests performed on no-clean flux residues that have been cleaned insufficiently and exposed to water-wash processes in order to determine whether electrical reliability was affected.

In addition, Emily Peck, MicroCare Senior Chemist, will present Cleaning for Reliability in Electronics, illustrating how electronics cleaning can be an important tool for enhancing performance and reliability.

The symposium is open to both SMTA member and non-members. Contact the SMTA Atlanta to register.
