Vapor phase manufacturer R&D Technical Services Inc. announces that David Suihkonen, President, will chair a technical session at the upcoming SMTA International Conference & Exhibition, scheduled to take place October 18-19, 2011 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, TX. The presentations will be held during session SMT4, titled Vapor Phase Soldering - Reflow to Rework Applications, which will take place Wednesday, October 19, 2011 from 8-9:30 a.m. in Room 202C.

The technical session will consist of the presentations of three case studies for the uses of Vapor Phase Reflow and Rework. From tin whisker mitigation improvements for reflow to high-reliability solder reflow and vapor phase used as a rework process, this session will cover various vapor phase uses, process requirements and benefits, and will shed light on many of the discussion points currently revolving around vapor phase. Challenges for the three case studies will be revealed and solutions presented.

The three case studies and authors include Anthony Primavera, Ph.D., “In-Process Reduction  Mitigation of Tin Whiskers by Condensing Vapor Reflow”; Rupen Trivedi, “Vapor Phase Rework - A Case Study for Heavy Thermal Challenges of Complex Assemblies”; and Michael S. Clawson, "Overcoming the Challenges of High Mix, Leading Edge Technologies in a High Reliability Environment with Vapor Phase Reflow.”  The session promises to be of great interest to SMTAI attendees.


Founded in 1996 to support the vapor reflow market, R&D Technical Services is the leading innovator of vapor phase equipment. R&D Technical Services’ vapor phase systems are used in numerous markets including SMT solder reflow, lead-free soldering, curing, drying, mechanical attachment, plastic package testing and more.
