SMTA is again co-locating its annual conference, SMTA International, with the Assembly Tech Expo (ATExpo) show this fall at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois (Conference: September 24-28; Exhibits: September 26-28).
Organized by the SMTA, many events are planned for industry professionals who have an interest in lead-free soldering technology and environmental compliance issues. In order to help industry professionals understand the challenges of lead-free, this year's event will feature the following lead-free specific offerings: 10 courses, close to 60 technical papers, the ever-popular Lead-free Soldering Symposium, and other special events.
The short courses will be on the following topics:
- Lead-free Reliability
- Lead-free for Harsh Environments
- Lead-free Manufacturing/Troubleshooting
- Lead-free vs SnPb
- Reality of Reliability of Lead-free
- Guide to WEEE and RoHS Assembly
- Backward Compatibility
- Lead-free Selective Soldering
- Lead-free Reflow With Convection
- Lead-free Rework
In addition, this year's conference will include a new full day workshop, "Beyond RoHS and WEEE: Preparing for the Energy-Using Products (EuP) Directive & Design for Environment," a program co-sponsored by the SMTA and Technology Forecasters, Inc. (TFI) and The GoodBye Chain Group.
