Christopher Associates Inc. today announced plans to unveil a new SPI unit in Booth #2801 at the upcoming IPC APEX Expo, scheduled to take place February 28 - March 1, 2012 at the San Diego Convention Center in California.
In addition to the launch of its new SPI unit and contributions to the technical sessions, Christopher Associates will exhibit the latest equipment and materials from its world-class suppliers, including:
Since its introduction, the MAGNUS HD TREND from Tagarno has rapidly achieved industry acceptance as one of the most useful inspection and manufacturing tools in the industry. With magnification from 4-325X, HD imaging and superior ergonomics the MAGNUS HD TREND can be used in any number of different operations and different departments including inspection, data capture, rework, manual assembly process, and in process inspections.
Also at the show, Christopher will introduce the new Koki S01X7C48-M500 low silver alloy solder paste. With spiraling metals costs, Koki's new, patented formulation offers perfect melting and wetting (<0.3mm dia CSP 0603 Chip) at supper fine pitch, low halide content (CL+BR<1500ppm), and excellent printability and process parameters, while reducing material costs substantially.
As the exclusive North America OTC Solder Mask distributor, Christopher will showcase the R-500 series, which meets all industry standards and is accepted worldwide by all major end-users. OTC, the leading supplier of solder masks in China, manufactures a complete line of LPI solder mask colors and finishes for North America's quick-turn, prototype market.
