Somerset, NJ – January 24th, 2017 – Alpha Assembly Solutions will have its latest low temperature technologies displayed at the Southern Manufacturing Show, Farnborough, UK from the 6th-8th February, by Solder Connection, Alpha’s Premium Distributor for the UK and Ireland.
Alpha’s revolutionary ALPHA® OM-550 HRL1 low-temperature, high reliability solder paste will be highlighted at the show. ALPHA® OM-550 solder paste paired with the ALPHA® HRL1 alloy has a melting point significantly lower than SAC305. A minimum peak temperature of only 185°C vs 245°C reduces energy consumption during the SMT process, enabling significant cost savings.
The ALPHA® HRL1 alloy was designed to exhibit improved drop shock and thermal cycling versus existing low temperature alloys. The drop shock performance and the thermal cycling reliability of mixed alloy joints increased by 100% and 20% respectively, compared to other low temperature alloys, enabling improved mechanical reliability. Additionally, the low temperature reflow of ALPHA® OM-550 HRL1 eliminates Head-in-Pillow and NWO defects.
Alpha and Solder Connection have enjoyed a long partnership, with Solder Connection distributing Alpha products across the UK and Ireland. In 2015, Solder Connection became part of Alpha’s exclusive Premium Distributor Council.
