AIM Solder announces that it will highlight its new NC259 Solder Paste in representative smartTec GmbH’s booth, which is located in Hall 7, Booth 219 at the upcoming SMT Hybrid Packaging exhibition and conference, scheduled to take place April 16-18, 2013 at the Messezentrum in Nuremberg, Germany.
This low-cost, lead-free, halogen-free solder paste offers the performance of tin-lead and high-silver lead-free solder pastes. Now manufacturers can attain the SMT soldering results they require while paying significantly less per gram than with traditional lead-free solder pastes. NC259 provides excellent print definition and sustainable solder volume transfer as the demand for smaller pads grows. Proven to mitigate head-in-pillow defects, NC259 reduces rework and rejected board costs to the manufacturer.
NC259 is formulated to provide one of the longest pause-to-print windows in the industry, resulting in less solder waste, fewer restart costs and improved overall quality of prints. The long stencil life and shelf-life results in far less waste than traditional solder pastes. The extremely broad process window of NC259 allows assemblers with high-density, high mix boards to run without timely set up. NC259 also offers extremely low post-process residues, which remain crystal clear after soldering.
Additionally, AIM will highlight its liquid fluxes, tin-lead and lead-free alloys, including SN100C. SN100C is a lead-free solder alloy developed by Nihon Superior in Japan that is comprised of tin, copper, and a small amount of nickel + germanium.
