IPC and SMTA Announce the Session 1 Agenda for the High Performance Cleaning and Coating Conference

Sep 20, 2010

ROSEMONT, IL - Industry-leading associations IPC and SMTA jointly announce the agenda for Session 1 of the High Performance Cleaning and Coating Conference, scheduled to take place November 16-18, 2010 at the Renaissance Hotel & Convention Center in Schaumburg, Illinois.

Session 1, chaired by Dave Adams of Rockwell Collins, will discuss electronic assembly cleaning processes, which include cleaning agent and equipment integration. With lower component gaps of 2 mils or lower and miniaturization, flux residue fills the gap under the component. Data findings show that flow, pressure and deflective energy are needed to move the cleaning agent to the soil. Low gaps create numerous complex factors for removing all residues. The following presentations will be held during Session 1:

  • Linda Woody of Lockheed Martin will discuss the development of in-line aqueous cleaning equipment and process parameters needed for cleaning ultra-low standoff components.

  • Gunnar Hafstad of Lockheed Martin will discuss assembly configuration and process design considerations for solvent centrifugal cleaning.

  • Mike Konrad of Aqueous Technologies will discuss best practice design criteria for batch aqueous cleaning systems.

  • Raymond Adcock and Steve Shoda of BAE Systems will discuss assembly cleaning equipment selection and integration.

A panel discussion will follow the tech papers with the goal of collaborating with audience participants to discuss best practice considerations for cleaning today’s challenging circuit assemblies. Julie Fields of Technical Devices, Curtis Hart of Hart Engineering and Dirk Ellis of Kyzen Corporation will join the speakers as panelists.
