SHENMAO Exhibits at ECTC in Las Vegas June 1-2, 2016 Booth # 505 Introduces Laser Soldering Paste

May 31, 2016 | SHENMAO Features a new Sn-3.0Ag-0.5Cu Lead-Free Solder Paste PF606-P133H for laser soldering applications. Dispensed from syringes, it is developed for automatic laser soldering processes in the packaging and assembly of surface mount devices and microelectronics. Laser energy is applied at the precise location in a non-contact procedure to create high shear strength well-formed solder joints during the lower thermal stress process while reducing intermetallic formation. PF606-P133H solder paste produces minimal flux residue and no-splash or solder balling issues. It is well suited for high yield soldering of sensitive electronic components in manufacturing or repair of electronic devices that can-not tolerate conventional reflow-oven temperature.
