Solder Paste and Solder Joint Automatic Inspection Experience at SMTA International

Jul 06, 2015

The SMTA announces a new feature area that will debut during the SMTA International Electronics Exhibition: the “SMTA - NPL Solder Paste and Solder Joint Automatic Inspection Experience.” This special feature will take place during both days of the SMTA International Exhibition at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois on September 29 - 30, 2015.

The special feature area, supported by SMTA & NPL, will include live printing of ultra-fine pitch deposits, 0201 and 01005 devices, inspection and measurement of different combinations of materials, plus some of the key in-process inspection steps to make a process perform correctly. It will also include AOI inspection of printed board assemblies for open joints, lifted leads, partial lifting of passives and other less common defects. A series of test boards have been specially created with known process defects to show the machines' capabilities.

Bob Willis, feature area organizer, will present a complimentary webinar on September 15 covering Solder Paste Inspection, Quality Control, Common Print and Reflow Problems - Causes & Cures. He will also showcase the activity at SMTA International.
