Brian O'Leary, sales manager � Americas for KIC and Fred Dimock, manager of process technology for BTU, will present the joint webinar.
The webinar will be presented twice: first at 1 p.m. PDT on Friday, April 24, 2009, and again at 9 a.m. PDT on Tuesday, April 28. The webinar will highlight some methods and tools that can be used to lower energy costs while maintaining profiles that are within the solder manufacturer's reflow specifications. When money gets tight, engineers are challenged to find ways to reduce manufacturing costs. Although the focus in an SMT process typically is on identifying less expensive materials and reducing scrap, the efficient operation of a reflow oven often is overlooked.
