Low Temperature Soldering – Malaysia Calling

I am really delighted to be able to present a one day workshop on LTS (Low Temperature Soldering) as part of EPCON Asia Conference 2022. I will be presenting online from the UK on Thursday 26th May. Prior to the workshop you can also find out more on some of the LTS defects from our Defect of the Month videos
The one day workshop will consist of the following:

Practical Use of Low Temperature Solder, Assembly, Reflow & Inspection

Join us for a practical look at the advantages and use of Low Temperature Soldering (LTS) in this special workshop. LTS is gaining significant 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. Generally speaking, solders used regally in assembly reflow at over 230oC, low temperature solders reflow at under 180oC
Many companies have been using tin/bismuth 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 guide 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 standard assembly or PIHR
Special Bonus for Registered Delegates

Each delegate who registers for the workshop will be able to submit a question or process defect example prior to the session and receive feedback during the workshop. In addition each delegate will receive a set of wall charts coving the use of Low Temperature Solder Joint Inspection for onsite training
Topics covered

Why adopt low temperature soldering
Advantage over traditional lead-free solder
Materials options
Component and PCB solderability
Printing solder paste
Standard and epoxy pastes
Reflow soldering and rework results
Use in wave, selective and robotic soldering
Reliability with mixed alloys
Inspection results
Defect types and solder joint failures

Who Will Benefit:

Our workshop illustrates the practical use of LTS materials in reflow, selective, wave soldering 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
