Cleaning Printed Circuit Assemblies, Design & Process Control Workshop
Monday 22nd May 1:00pm — 4:30pm
Radisson Blu Hotel Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Amsterdam, Netherlands

The workshop is part of SMTA & SMART Group Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference, their first-ever conference in Europe. The conference focus is on contamination, cleaning and conformal coating in the manufacture of electronics. Be part of this two-day event featuring presentations, workshop, and a panel discussion with table top exhibition

Workshop Introduction:

The majority of the industry worldwide have been running no clean processes for many years and have often, understandably, neglected important issues like design for cleaning, selecting compatible components and compatibility between cleaning materials and flux residues. Bob Willis with over 40 years working in manufacture has set up and run both clean and no clean production processes and will demonstrate many of the tricks of the trade to get the best from your process. With increased miniaturisation and the demands of modern circuits cleaning has come back into fashion. Conformal coating is another process which has demanded special levels of surface cleanliness to guarantee coating adhesion and long term reliability. Although there are high reliability produces that use coating with no clean others want that extra confidence. Bob is joined on this workshop by two well know industry engineers with considerable experience in material technology for different cleaning applications

Each delegate will receive a FREE set of cleaning inspection and quality control wall charts which also cover defects seen during assembly

Workshop topics include:

PCB Design for cleaning
Testing component compatibility
Flux compatibility with cleaning solvents
Solubility of soldering residues
Cost of process chemistry and equipment
Inline or batch cleaning options
Process cleaning capability, simple shop floor analysis methods
Water, semi aqueous or solvent?
Simple steps to evaluate machine cleaning capability
Determining cleanliness standards
Ionic, SIR and visual inspection methods
Environmental requirements of cleaning
Cleaning no clean flux residues

Who should attend:

This session is ideally suited to design, production and quality engineers looking at future technology and maintaining a company technology roadmap. It’s vital to subcontractors to be up-to-date with new technology and its possible implementation along with material and equipment requirements for future customers
