IPC and SMTA to Present High-Reliability Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference

Sep 29, 2016

IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries® in partnership with Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) will host High-Reliability Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference, October 25–27, at the Hyatt Rosemont in Rosemont, Ill. The 2016 conference will focus on electronics assembly and the influence of cleanliness and coating on producing reliable hardware.

Prior to the technical conference, a full-day of classroom instruction will be held on October 25 and will introduce attendees to basic/intermediate-level instruction. In the morning, Dale Lee, Plexus Corporation will present “DFX – Design for Excellence: Focus on DFR-Design for Reliability of Hardware to be Cleaned.” In the afternoon session, instructors, Doug Pauls, Rockwell Collins and Jason Keeping, Celestica, Inc. will present “Robust Coating Processes in the Factory: Methods, Critical Parameters, Problems and Remedies.”

The technical conference begins on October 26 with opening remarks from Program Chair Dr. Mike Bixenman, KYZEN Corporation. Siva Sivasankar, Google, will deliver the keynote presentation, “Building Reliable Hardware.” Conference sessions on day one include: processes for achieving reliability; cleaning materials, machines, rinsing and process control; and conformal coating for Class 2 electronic assemblies.

Day two of the technical conference will open with a keynote presentation from Dock Brown, DfR Solutions on “Requirements for Both Cleaning and Coating to Building Medical Hardware.” Conference sessions will cover customer cleaning challenges and needs; and ultra-thin or nanocoatings in electronics assembly operations.

Today, how to address the issue of ‘how clean is clean’ is quite a challenge, as conductors and circuit traces have become increasingly narrower. What is acceptably clean for one industry segment may be unacceptable in others” said conference program chairman Dr. Mike Bixenman, CTO and founder of KYZEN Corporation. “This comprehensive event includes technical sessions, tutorials, tabletop exhibits and networking activities. It will cover technological developments in all areas of cleaning and coating with an emphasis on real-world problems and solutions.”
