Kester to host lead-free RoHS assembly seminar in the Vancouver area
Jun 28, 2005
Kester announces that it will host a lead-free seminar titled, "Project 2005: Achieving Lead-free RoHS Assembly" on Tuesday, July 26, 2005 in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. The seminar will be held at the Ramada Plaza Vancouver Airport.
The Project 2005 seminar series is designed to assist the electronic industry in the successful transition to lead-free soldering and RoHS compliancy. It will address key lead-free assembly issues and give you technical, practical and proven information to transition in a timely fashion so your company can maintain reliability and production yields. The seminar is purely technical and void of commercialism.
Kester Project 2005 does not concentrate on specific consumer applications as others do. It will present the various complexities of assemblies and what your company needs to do to comply with the European WEEE and RoHS Directives. This seminar offers complete information and case studies to make these products reliable with lead-free while being RoHS compliant.
The seminar begins with a continental breakfast at 8 a.m. This will be the first of many networking opportunities. Eight hours of presentation, ideas and discussion covering the following topics will ensue: lead-free and RoHS directive overview; supply changes and procurement issues; board/component requirements; lead-free alloy selection for SMT, wave, and rework; lead-free wave, and SMT process optimization; impact of dual systems; BGA rework practices; hand soldering process changes; lead-free RoHS reliability; field rework and training; and training and documentation.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Additionally, experts will be available for questions and answers during all breaks. Attendees will receive a lead-free assembly technical manual containing presentation materials; technical white papers; and the Lead-Free Connection(TM) Newsletter, issued quarterly, containing valuable process information and technical tips to achieve solid lead-free processes. Early bird registration is $195.00 (USD) two weeks prior to the seminar; otherwise it is $245.00 (USD) per person.
