AIM’s Karl Seelig to Present at SMTA Guadalajara 2017

AIM Solder, a leading global manufacturer of solder assembly materials for the electronics industry, is pleased to announce that Karl Seelig, VP of Technology, will present the white paper “New Pb-Free Solder Alloy for Demanding Applications” at SMTA Guadalajara 2017, scheduled to take place on October 18th – October 19th, 2017 at the Hotel Riu Plaza Guadalajara in Guadalajara, Jal, Mexico.

Seelig’s paper explores industry need for solder alloys that can perform in harsh service conditions and examines potential solutions. Applications such as high performance LED lighting and automotive applications require solder alloys to operate at high temperatures where commonly used SAC305 may be prone to failure. The challenges potential new high-reliability alloys present are associated with processing and manufacturability difficulties. This study’s focus is a new Sn-Ag-Cu-Bi-X solder alloy (X represents micro alloying dopants) with favorable processing capabilities and significant improvements in reliability. The study demonstrates how the new multi-component solder alloy, which provides improved thermo-mechanical performance, can be an ideal solder material for severe operating environment applications.

Additionally, AIM will highlight its full line of advanced solder materials, including its newly developed high reliability alloys, REL61™ and REL22™, its solder paste, liquid flux and solder alloys. REL61 addresses the most challenging issues with today’s common lead-free alloys, specifically soldering performance, cost, durability and tin whiskers.
