AIM has produced a handy 50-page booklet that covers paste, printing, reflow, wave and hand soldering with a glossary and reference section. The booklet is available free to customers. The small pocket booklet is an ideal reference for production, engineering and quality staff and includes some good photographs. It is a simple troubleshooting guide covering most of the common process issues and is similar in style to a series of guides produced by Alpha Metals a couple of years ago. The reference section provides a list of alloys, some of which are lead free, along with tables for cored wire size, paste powder and temperature conversion.

With the growing interest in lead-free soldering and with AIM's knowledge of the subject, how long will it be until a guide is available on lead-free solder assembly?

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.

The Human Touch

For those who count on the electronics industry for big feats, it’s been a remarkable couple of years.
