Low Temperature Soldering (LTS) Workshop at ART

By November 11, 2023No Comments

Advanced Rework Technology (ART) will be hosting the First One Day UK Workshop dedicated to assembly and soldering with low temperature solder paste, cored wire and bar with Bob Willis. The one day workshop will be held on 11th January at ART, the home of IPC training in Witham, Essex
The use of Low Temperature Soldering LTS is gaining interest in the industry to reduce cost, prevent component and PCB damage and improve reliability. It’s different but that does not mean it cannot be introduced into your process with existing process equipment like wave, selective, reflow and rework. Generally speaking, solders used regally in assembly reflow at over 240degC, low temperature solders reflow at under 180degC. There are some organistion predicting a large growth in low temperature materials in the next two to three years for multistep solderingMany companies have been using tin/bismuth and tin/bismuth/silver alloys for some years reducing cost on PCBs and energy. Other companies have been using tin/indium for rework of lead-free area array packages with success. There are savings to be made even if the cost of some solder alloy is more expensive provided you consider the total cost of manufacture. We produced the first book, video and interactive CD-ROM on pin in hole intrusive reflow, so we believe we are in a good position to help engineers achieve high yields with low temperature materials with PIHR

As special bonus for delegates booking on my workshop, we are providing a FREE set of LTS Soldering and De-Soldering Wall charts for onsite training. Delegates will also receive a full set of the slides presented by Bob WillisWhat You Will Learn:

Why use low temperature solder
Benefit over lead-free alloys
Materials available
Printing paste, wave, selective & Robotic soldering
Use of epoxy support materials
Reflow soldering and rework test results
Reliability with mixed alloys
Inspection criteria results
Defect types and joint failures

Who Will Benefit:

The workshop illustrates the practical use of LTS materials in reflow, selective and rework so the content should benefit Process and Quality Engineers. As inspection and defects are covered it will also be ideal for Product Operators, Supervisors and Line Managers tasked with its implementation
