Alpha will present its enabling technology soldering products and will be a sponsor of the IPC Hand soldering Competition at the 2012 IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego, California, February 28-March 2, at the San Diego Convention Center.
“We look forward to the IPC Hand Soldering Competition at IPC APEX EXPO and the opportunity to meet with electronic assemblers to discuss the value we can help them create in their processes when they use ALPHA® product technologies to produce highly reliable solder joints,” said Mike Previti, Alpha’s Americas Region Marketing Manager. “Our Technology Exchanges with many of our customers have helped to lower their total cost of ownership. Some have used our SACX Plus® low-Ag alloys and others have used our low temperature CVP-520 solder paste on their lines to achieve excellent results. Our ALPHA® Telecore XL-825 delivers very fast wetting and low flux spatter, providing for operator safety and less residue on PCBs. In addition we will feature our ALPHA® solder preform technology which enables assemblers the ability to augment precise amounts of solder volume to achieve 100% hole fill.”
Alpha is pleased to be a sponsor of the IPC Hand Soldering Competition in which the company will feature its ALPHA® Telecore XL-825 cored solder wire, specially developed for manual assembly and drag soldering.
