IPC and SMTA Announce Chairs for Workshop 2 of the High Performance Cleaning and Coating Conference

Oct 04, 2010

ROSEMONT, IL - Industry-leading associations IPC and SMTA jointly announce the chairs of Workshop 2 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.

Lee Hitchens of SCH Technologies will hold a workshop which will demystify the science of conformal coating, coating material technologies, and available application methods. Participants will be encouraged to take control of their conformal coating process:

  • Understanding which coating to use, how to apply it, and how much that costs

  • Troubleshooting process problems and how to resolve them

  • Specifying a new process, interaction on key customer projects

The workshop includes practical examples, demonstrations, defect guides and cost models for introducing a conformal coating line.

  • Basic concepts — definitions, what coating does, why used, chemistry and technology

  • How to select a coating — fit for purpose, standards and specifications

  • Application of conformal coating — including robotic selective, dipping, and spraying — pros and cons of each technique

  • Managing coating thickness — viscosity control and curing

  • How poor cleanliness destroys PCB
