Reading time words. National Electronics Week NEW takes place in London this week, June 17 to 19, , with exhibitors from global locales bringing new equipment and processes to the U. Following are the new cleaning systems, reflow ovens, print platforms, solder materials, and other elements on display at the show. Almit Ltd is launching a dipping paste featuring strong tack performance and wetting force, targeting applications with significant package warpage and package-on-package PoP fluxing applications during reflow.
LFM 48 N dipping paste is an alternative to gel pastes traditionally used in BGA PoP stacked device applications and holds larger-area devices that often exhibit warpage during reflow. The paste is a combination of ultra-fine solder spheres and a flux vehicle optimized for a long open time in a dipping tray.
It offers reliability advantages to board assemblers at both solder melt and peak reflow temperatures. LFM 48 N is designed to deliver consistent dipping transfer characteristics coupled with a strong tack performance to hold large devices in position on high-speed pick-and-place systems. It deploys Almit's low-voiding, thermally stable flux technology. Stand C Aqueous Technologies Corp.
Trident's specific throughput rate is determined by board size. It offers several defluxing configurations, up to five cycles including prewash, wash, rinse, cleanliness testing, and drying. Prewash, if selected, may consist of a steam soak, high-pressure DI water spray, or chemical spray and soak.
The wash cycle uses environmentally responsible defluxing solutions, neutralizing and solublizing flux and other residues. The rinse cycle is controlled by the built-in cleanliness tester automatically, based on selected cleanliness requirements.
The dry cycle uses a unique combination of radiant and convection heat. Trident is equipped with an automatic chemical management system and an inverse-mounted vertically oriented spray pump that virtually eliminates pump-caused dragout. Built-in statistical process control SPC data capturing technology allows users to view historical SPC data, including actual cleanliness results, both at the machine and remotely.
At the Altus stand A Designed to solve excessive programming times in current in-system, JTAG, and in-circuit programming production methods, the FS is modeled from the BPM handler and contains four Flashstream programming sites.
Rated at devices per hour, FS handles parts in tray, tube, or tape for device input or output. Rated at devices per hour, the HelixFS gives customers the option to use Flashstream sites or BPM's current universal site technology that supports over 28, device part numbers. The HelixFS has the ability to switch between the dedicated flash sites and universal sites, to adapt to production needs. The manual Flashstream as well as the universal device programmers will also be on display with demonstrations of 2-Gbit Samsung NAND flash memory device being programmed in In distributor Adaptsys' booth F BTU Europe will showcase the Pyramax range as an eight-zone air A or low-consumption nitrogen N solution, both providing repeatable process control to ease the transition to lead-free.
The Pyramax 's water cooling system features closed-loop cooling control for variable cooling rates and increased process control, with a sliding heat exchanger assembly to enable easy access for maintenance. Pyramax also provides multiple extraction locations, together with 'on the fly' maintenance.
Contax Ltd. On the line will be the new Speedline MPM printer that will be launched at the show, and the Universal Instruments Genesis placement machine.
Contax will be inviting visitors to bring in sample boards for a X-ray inspection using a phoenix nanome x. The resulting images can then be recorded on the visitors' own memory stick to take away for future reference. This offer is available on a 'first come, first served' basis. The company also will introduce the Essemtec SP batch printer for medium-volume production or as a standalone to cover peak loads, with a shuttle system.
Furthermore, a range of Rommel laser marking equipment will be on show for the first time in the U. This includes a laser marker for top and bottom side marking, product stacker, and out-feed conveyor.
Additional equipment on the stand will include the Komax Kappa cut and strip machine and Komax bt benchtop press for cable assembly. Stands E70 and E Flex HR is an enhanced-resolution AOI system with inspection performance for components and larger.
High-speed, it suits assembly lines producing a wide range of products, including memory, notebook, mobile phone, and automotive assemblies. Base system features include high-speed pre- and post-reflow inspection capabilities, and proprietary SAM vision technology that learns as the process varies providing the lowest escape and false-call rate combination in the industry.
This software also enables inspection on any component or feature such as chips, ICs, empty locations, lead-free solder joints, gold fingers, connectors, clips, and screws.
Recent system enhancements include barcode reading with system cameras, dual-stage defect review and repair, and lot management improvements, along with an easy-to-use operator user interface OUI.
The new OUI for inspection and defect review provides operators a simple, intuitive graphical user interface with a look and feel similar to the user interface on the CyberOptics' SE solder paste inspection machine, which will also be at the show. DEK will exhibit its print platforms, Productivity Tools, precision screens, and stencils and consumables at the show, as well as participating in the Production Live!
The Horizon 03i print platform will be on display as a scalable system for long-term flexibility. Now equipped with a new gull-wing cover for enhanced accessibility and convenience, Horizon 03i is newly compatible with Productivity Tools including the Cyclone understencil cleaner.
The Horizon 01i print platform will be on the live production line at the show. Stand A DKL Metals Ltd. SNC has demonstrated superior long-term fatigue strength over silver-containing SAC alloys, the company reports.
Being free of silver, SNC reportedly remedies copper migration into the tin regions of the solder joint. With XF3, wetting on all common metal surfaces is excellent, yielding shiny joints reminiscent of leaded solders.
Stand G Europlacer will display its iineo platform at the show. The iineo I will be in the booth, demonstrating device handling from to mm2 as well as the quick changeover capability of Europlacer's machines.
Also, an iineo II placement system will be running on the live production line at the show. The iineo platform features many improvements to the Europlacer machine range such as a higher feeder count, increased board size, and increased maximum component height. Board location on both is full edge clamping with fiducial correction, and both systems feature a SMEMA interface. The single-head iineo features one nozzle with 40 positions in its "smart" nozzle tool bank, and the dual-head configuration provides two nozzles.
Options include glue dispense with Archimedean screw, electrical test, fixed camera, conveyor auto-width adjustment, special nozzle magazine, and other items. Europlacer's intelligent feeder technology is used across the whole range of its SMT placers.
This new platform is accompanied by software products such as multi-job optimization and wireless stock management linked to ERP. Europlacer has entered into an agreement to distribute the EVEST Taiwan mid- to high-speed placement machine alongside its Europlacer range of equipment in the U.
The products boast simple feeders and conventional pipette heads. The smaller size and footprint help reduce cost, but still provide a capacity of 10 lb 5kg of dross. The EVS converts waste dross into pure solder in minutes, while improving the wave solder machine process. The EVS is aimed at small- to medium-sized users that typically have one to three wave solder machines and must regularly dedross or use nitrogen to reduce drossing.
By using the EVS, nitrogen can be dramatically reduced or eliminated, resulting in significant cost savings. In distributor Vtech Smt Ltd. KIC Explorer features a compact design to suit restrictive process dimensions encountered in today's thermal applications. It incorporates state-of-the-art SMT technology and high-temperature rated components. As a standard feature, the profiler has 12 thermocouples in a miniature-TC harness design, which is reportedly less expensive than using a standard Type-K thermocouple.
It also is available in a standard Type-K, seven-channel model. The KIC Explorer provides a high sampling rate, greater memory capacity, and superior data precision, according to the company. Thermal profile data are transferred to a user's computer via USB connection. The product is powered by standard AAA batteries; rechargeable batteries are optional. Its software has a graphical interface that guides operators through profiling tasks.
All critical profile and process data are measured, including slope, peak temperature, and time above liquidus. The software also measures the Process Window Index PWI statistic, which mathematically identifies a profile's "fit" to the available process window. A PWI less than indicates an in-spec profile.
A PWI value of zero represents the center of the process window. Manual prediction capability comes standard with the KIC Explorer.
In distributor Link Hamson's stand F Also being demonstrated on the working production line at NEW, AQUANOX A is designed with an inhibition technology to be effective on the toughest soils while protecting even the most sensitive parts from etch or darkening. It can be used in a multi-process environment in spray batch, spray in-line, and stencil cleaning processes.
