SMT Products and Services offered by Alpha
Alpha offers a wide variety of preform products, targeting both assembly and stand-alone applications. Alpha invented tape and reel packaging for preforms to enable the integration of solder preforms into the PCB assembly process. Alpha continues to offer the widest variety of tape and reel preform sizes, and alloys, including all the standard solder paste assembly alloys plus the new, low temperature RoHS compliant SnBi alloys.
Preforms are an enabling technology for the integration of PCBs into higher level assemblies and many other stand alone soldering operations. Alpha’s preform products target wire harness assembly, die attach, power module assembly, solar junction box, electronic and electrical device build, and many others. One emerging example is the use induction soldering. Solder preforms with flux can be soldered with induction with cycle times many times faster than conventional soldering processes using solder paste.
