FCT Assembly to Exhibit at Local SMTA Rocky Mountain Expo

Jan 25, 2015

FCT Assembly today announced plans to exhibit at the SMTA Rocky Mountain Expo Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015 at the West Club at Mile High Stadium in Denver, CO. Solder experts will be available to discuss FCT’s NanoSlic® Gold stencil and line of solution driven solder pastes.

The NanoSlic® Gold stencil is the next generation of stencil technology developed to address the increasing demands confronting the electronic assembly industry. The NanoSlic® Gold coating is based on a proprietary application process that coats both the underside of the stencil and aperture walls. This robust coating is both highly hydrophobic and oleophobic, which repels solder paste. NanoSlic® Gold is thermally cured and is a permanent coating. The NanoSlic® technology significantly improves solder paste transfer efficiencies for small apertures resulting in higher yields and less rework. In addition, NanoSlic® minimizes bridging and reduces underside cleaning. This technology can be easily evaluated and is compatible with current assembly equipment and processes.

FCT Assembly offers solder pastes that are specially formulated to solve various issues during the assembly process, including anti-tombstoning, low graping, low voiding, low melting, high activity and more. The product line is separated into leaded versus lead-free. For leaded pastes, FCT sells 63/37, 62/36/2 and high temperature leaded alloys. Lead-free alloys include SAC305, SN100C, SAC387, SAC307 as well as other HMP alloys. These typically come in Type 3, Type 4 and Type 5 particle sizes. 

In addition to its line of solder paste, FCT manufactures other products that reduce defects and increase yields during the printing process including laser cut stencils and stencil coatings. Visit the FCT team at the SMTA Rocky Mountain Expo or go to www.fctassembly.com to find out why FCT has the best performing products on the market.


FCT Assembly consists of three divisions: FCT Solder, Fine Line Stencil and A-Laser. FCT Assembly is a leading and innovative manufacturer of lead-free and leaded solder products, superior quality stencils and precision laser-cut parts with multiple locations throughout North America.

FCT Assembly strongly believes in taking a multi and interdisciplinary approach when developing new products and processes. With expertise in micro-machining, metallurgy, chemistry and polymer technology, FCT Assembly is well positioned to develop products to meet technology challenges and satisfy customer demands.For more information, visit www.fctassembly.com.
