FCT Assembly’s Technical Support Expert to Present during Joint Workshop in Dallas

May 28, 2013

FCT Assembly announces that Greg Smith, Regional Sales Manager and Technical Support, will present at a joint cleaning and reliability workshop held in cooperation with Aqueous Technologies, Kyzen and Nordson DAGE. Greg’s presentation, entitled “Can Nano Coatings Really Improve Stencil Performance?” will take place Thursday, June 13, 2013 from 1:45-2:45 p.m. at SpringHill Suites Dallas Richardson-Plano in Texas.

The trajectory of electronic design and its associated miniaturization shows no signs of altering course. Surface Mount Technology will require innovative materials and processes to stay in lockstep with other segments of the electronics industry. Nano coatings have been introduced by various manufacturers, with the promise of addressing some of the challenges relative to solder paste printing. Stated benefits include: reduced underside cleaning, reduced bridging, improved solder paste release and improvements in yield. With several nano technologies already on the market and more likely to be introduced, how can the performance be quantified? How robust are these coatings? How can an assembler approach the ROI of these coatings? What hidden benefits or negative impacts should be considered?

This paper will present, for the first time, a rigorous method for evaluating the performance and economic benefits of solder paste stencil nano coatings. Criterion such as underside cleaning, bridging, transfer efficiency across SARs, solder paste deposit geometry, post-print cleaning and abrasion resistance of the coating, will all be considered and weighted. Performance of currently available coatings will be compared. A discussion of the economic impact on current and future SMT design also will be included.

Greg has worked in the electronics industry since 1989. He was the owner and president of Global Stencil, Inc. for 23 years and recently sold his company to FCT Assembly.  He now works for FCT Assembly in a sales role supporting Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and Kansas. Greg has an extensive understanding of stencil design and the printing process. He holds a B.S. in Business Management from Letourneau University.
